What to expect from our certified translation services

Passionate about language and translation, we put everything into our work to ensure that it can be held to the highest possible standards. Not only are our translations conducted by human translators with years of experience in the translation industry, but they are also revised by a second translator to ensure that every letter of every word is without fault. This is no different for our certified translations, which we conduct and deliver with the utmost care and professionalism.

Upon delivery of a certified translation, which are always translated by a certified translator (a qualified member of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting), you will receive a physical copy of your translation alongside a certificate, official stamp and date of the translation. What’s more, you will also receive a statement from your translator, stating that the translation is a “true and accurate translation of the original document.” These additions are essential for official applications, such as when you are applying for a visa or to a university.

With years of experience in carrying out our translations, we know that accuracy is everything when it comes to official authorities, which is why we guarantee it on every certified translation that we conduct.

Certified translations for visa and passport applications

As part of any immigration process, individuals are required to submit supporting evidence as part of their application. Supporting documents in another language must be supported by a certified translation. Supporting documents include birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce papers, bank statements, and if applicable, police records.

We know how frustrating visa applications can be, especially when you need to apply with documents that are not in your native language, which is why LEaF strives to make this process as stress-free and as simple as possible.

Once we have discussed your needs and goals, all we need to begin the translation is a scanned image or high-quality photograph of your original documents to begin work. You do not need to send your official documents to us via the post.

Keeping you in the loop every step of the way, once the translation is checked and completed, you will receive the translated document via first class registered post, alongside the stamp and translation certificate.
