What do Official Translation Services entail?

Official translation services provide certified translations of documents from one language to another. These services are often used for legal and business purposes, such as when obtaining visas, registering a business in another country, filing international court paperwork, or preparing immigration applications.

Official translation services use highly-trained translators who specialise in various languages and fields, ensuring that the translations they provide meet the requirements of the target audience. They are also knowledgeable on many cultural nuances and dialects, which is important for accurately conveying information in a foreign language.

Official translators can translate documents in any format, including hard copies, digital files, images, audio recordings and video footage. In addition to providing translations of text-based content, some official translation services also provide interpretation services and website localisation.

When choosing an official translation service, it’s important to make sure the provider has the relevant qualifications and experience in your field. You should also research whether they use any specific tools or technologies to ensure accuracy in their translations. Additionally, you may want to ask for a sample of the provider’s work to ensure that their translations meet your expectations.


About Surrey Translation Bureau

Surrey Translation Bureau are an experienced translation agency with many years of experience. We were established as a professional translation agency in 1984 in Farnham, near London, UK. Back then, our small team offered translation in just a handful of languages. We used a few translators and the limited technology of the day.

Now, after 40 years of dedication and hard work, we have developed an efficient and flexible system for our translators and clients. Our core principles remain unchanged, but we now boast a global network of resources, the best tools available, and a customer base who trust us to translate any text into any language for any industry.

As an award-winning ISO-certified translation agency, we offer language services to businesses, professional organisations, public bodies, individuals and other translation agencies. We cover almost all world languages and work with specialists in a wide range of fields including medical, legal, technical, marketing, financial, science, environmental and public sector.

In addition to core translation, editing and revision, we provide other related language services – including SEO translation, DTP, localisation, terminology management, transcreation and legalisation, however our meat and drink is official translation, like your marriage certificate, birth certificate, documents for the home office and passport office and really any official document.

We take your original documents and using our professional translation services we make sure that the document is perfectly accurate and acceptable for their specific translation requirements.

We have numerous in-house translators who are the native speaker of the languages you are looking to translate. This is hugely important due to the nuances in some languages like Spanish and Japanese. These languages have many regional dialects as well as feminine and masculine language. So although AI and automated machine translation seems like a cheap, suitable solution, you can end up offending someone or at the risk of being “lost in translation”.
