What do we need to see?
Word / Excel / pdf scans / jpeg files / clear photographs
Every translation varies in length and complexity so Anna really needs to see your documents before she can quote. Factors such as text density, specialism and urgency may affect prices. Please also let us know the following:
Intended Purpose - where will the translation be used? e.g. for use in court, import/export, visas, citizenship, university/skills assessment applications, print media etc.
Urgency - Tell us if you have a hard deadline or submission date coming up.
Any handwritten names/places - If your document contains a lot of handwriting, it is best to supply correct name spellings at the same time as your enquiry.
Anna will respond to your enquiry as quickly as possible, although there may be a delay due to differences in time zone. Anna is based in Brisbane, Australia (AEST). She works on projects from across Australia as well as from the UK, France, New Caledonia, francophone Africa, Spain and Latin America.
LET US KNOW
The Intended Purpose
If we know where you will be submitting / using the translation, we can give you all the suitable options. For example, extract translations are preferred for visa applications, but full translations are required for citizenship/passport applications. Similarly, extract driving licences are fine for hiring a car, but if you need to exchange a foreign licence for an Australian one, only a full translation will be accepted.
Please also let us know whether you have any hard deadlines as urgency may affect prices.
Extract vs. Full Translations
Some certificate translations and financial documents can be translated either in 'Extract' format (where only the most important details are presented in an approved table), or as 'Full Translations' (a translation of every word).
Extracts are a cost-effective option and are accepted by the Department of Immigration for all migration and visa purposes, so 99% of the time, extracts are perfect for proving identity, address, income etc.
The only exceptions that we are aware of are for citizenship/passport applications, and when making applications to the various state departments of transport, where full translations are required. Please let Anna know if this is the case before ordering.
Certain types of contract are also suitable for extract/summary translation, usually for people who simply need to prove an address, employment and/or income, such as tenancy agreements and employment contracts. Anna will advise on the best option at the time of quoting.
