We are authorised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to certify our translations. This means your translation will be accepted for most legal purposes. We can also provide the service of obtaining an apostille on your document when required. There is a surcharge for this service so please contact us.
Ideally find out whether a certified translation is sufficient or if you need the additional Apostille service.
We can translate from and into any language. It’s as simple as that. Our network of over 1,000 professional translators from around the world ensure that whatever language pairs you need, and no matter what topic your document covers, we will be able to assist you.
Our normal delivery for a document of up to 1,500 words is 3 working days, which allows us enough time to have your document translated, proofread, and then reviewed, to ensure it is 100% accurate.
Larger numbers of words will require more time to process and for each document we will give you a delivery date which we will stick to unfailingly.
We offer an express delivery at a surcharge of between 30-50%, depending on the urgency. For shorter documents, we can provide translations in as little as one working day via express delivery. All charges and surcharges will be indicated in our quotation.
For specialised topics such as medical or other highly technical texts, delivery times may be longer due to the need of engaging specialists in the topic for the translations to be done accurately. We will advise delivery times upon receipt and examination of each document of this sort.
For shorter documents, we can provide translations in as little as one working day via express delivery.
Our express service surcharge ranges from 30-50% depending on the urgency.
Call us if you need an urgent translation.
All charges and surcharges will be indicated in our quotation.
Our minimum fee is €55 and this usually covers a basic single page document or up to 350 words in some but not all languages.
The price of a translation is dependent on:
- the number of words in your document
- the languages involved
- the delivery deadline (only in the case of urgency)
- the topic (for technical texts)
This means that we need to see the document before we can give you an exact quotation. We always quote the best possible price for a high quality translation. Rest assured we will always do our best to provide you with a quote as soon as possible, normally within the hour during working hours.
We accept all payment methods including debit/credit card, Revolut, Paypal, cheque and cash.
Payment is required in full on confirmation of our quotation and work begins on receipt of payment.
All translations are guaranteed for accuracy of content.

We are authorised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to certify our translations. Certification is included for free, but we only certify the translation if you specifically ask for it. So when you make your translation order, tell us what you need the translation for or that you need it certified. You can collect your certified translation from our offices or you can arrange a courier to collect for you.

Yes, all previous translations are kept on file, so we can easily provide you with another copy. There is a small charge dependent on the size of the document and the date it was completed. This is normally around €10.
All of our staff and linguists have signed non-disclosure agreements and we treat all documents we receive as highly confidential. For clients intending to use our services long-term for confidential document translations, we have a standard mutual non-disclosure agreement which we sign for peace of mind.

How it Works
Ordering a translation is easy, but every translation is different and depends on:
- Document quality. An original document or high quality .pdf is best and much easier to wordcount and translate than if you take a blurry low quality photo with your phone!
- Language pair. If your language choices are common, like German, Maltese, French, etc then we always have translators ready to start work. If your language pair is less common, it may require slightly longer but we will provide you with an accurate delivery date, and deliver on or before that date.
- Translation size. The higher the number of words to translate the more time is needed. In some cases can split the job across different translators to speed up the job but we make sure the same translator does the complete job from start to finish in order to guarantee consistency.
- Translation urgency. If you need this translation urgently, it means translators might have to stop their current job to work on yours. This requires an urgency fee. But we will do everything we can to find you an available translator to meet your deadline and deliver the translation as fast as humanly possible.
