Certified Translations Frequently Asked Questions

What is a certified translation?

A certified translation is a meticulous, word-for-word translation necessary for official purposes, as required by entities such as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), universities, colleges, and state or federal institutions and courts. Notarize Translations.net specializes in providing these certified translations, adhering to the regulations set by the USCIS, which is the institution most commonly in need of this type of document. Every certified translation from Notarize Translations.net includes a certificate of accuracy. This certificate is issued on the company's corporate letterhead and is signed by both the translator and a representative of Notarize Translations.net. The document is provided in PDF format, ensuring its suitability for official use and recognition by the required authorities.

How are pages counted?

When requesting a certified translation from Notarize Translations.net, a key factor to consider is the method used for calculating the pages of the document. In this context, a single page is typically defined as containing up to 250 words. Should a project exceed this 250-word limit, the pricing is then adjusted and calculated on a per-word basis. This rate varies depending on the specific language pairs involved in the translation. Notarize Translations.net ensures transparency in its pricing structure, allowing clients to understand and anticipate the costs associated with their certified translation needs.

How much does the service cost?

Notarize Translations.net offers certified translation services, with prices ranging between $29 and $40 per page. The cost may vary depending on the language, especially for those that use non-Latin alphabets, like Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, which typically incur a higher charge.

A page is defined as containing up to 250 words, including numbers. This can be in letter size (8.5″ x 11″), A4, or smaller dimensions, and must be one-sided.

For languages that use logograms, such as Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, Notarize Translations.net considers each individual character as a word. This is an important distinction for these languages, as their writing systems are character-based rather than alphabetic.
