Q. How long does a translation take?
The average speed of translation is around 2000-3000 words per day. This can depend on the availability of specialist linguists within your field of law or finance. For urgent deadlines and larger jobs we will always work towards your specific deadline where possible, and can use teams of linguists to expedite important documents.
At this speed, our New York and London offices translate roughly 20 million words between them every year.
Q. Do I need a certified translation? What exactly does certification offer?
A certified translation is a requirement for most legal documents. It confirms that a translation has been accomplished by an accredited translation agency.
A certificate will contain details that anyone can query to ascertain that an accompanying translation is of proven quality. These details include a reference number, our official company stamp, and our professional membership accreditations.
You will receive a digital copy of your certificate by email and a hard copy by post.
If you are in any doubt about whether a document requires certified translation, contact us.
