Certified translations from LEaF: our friendly service in 8 simple steps

Step 1: Email photographs or scans of your documents to hello@leaftranslations.com. Please ensure that the images are fully in focus and clearly show all four corners and edges of each of the documents. Don’t forget to tell us your required language combination and how soon you need the certified translation.

Step 2: We will send you a personalised quote for the service. Our prices start from £85 (+VAT).

Step 3: Choose between our standard service (digital copy of the documents only) and our premium service (digital and paper copy posted to a UK address).

Step 4: Send an email confirming that you wish to proceed, including your billing address.

Step 5: We will issue an invoice for the work. Once this invoice has been paid in full, we will set to work on the translations.

Step 6: We will send you a final draft of the translation before we certify it to ensure you are happy with everything.

Step 7: Once you have approved the translation, we will go ahead and certify the translation, signing and stamping the certification letter with our official stamp, and stamping each page of the translation so it is suitable for official purposes.

Step 8: We will send over the digital copy of the certified translation and, where requested, will post the paper copy to your designated UK address by Royal Mail First Class Signed For.

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.

Every certified translation includes a certificate, certifying the translation is “a true and accurate representation” of the source document.

This certificate and the translations themselves are stamped with our official company stamp, approving them for use for official purposes, such as applying for a visa or for a place at a British 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 – this 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.
