Official translation costs

Postby Jalapenomel » Wed Jul 10, 2013 6:33 pm

Can anyone tell me how much an official translation costs, roughly, from English to Spanish?

I spent around S/550 to have my birth certificate and a simple certificate stating I was single (along with the apostiles, I'm guessing) translated along with the official stamps. I can try and dig up the details if you want.

$8-10 USD per page.

Additional costs for legalizations and certifications.

What do you mean by official stamps? Is that to show it's been officially certified or something else?

TIA.

Hello Jalapenomel,

For my University Certificate (in English) to Spanish cost me S/. 50 (Official Translation) - 2 pages of translation as they translated the legalization stamps on the back of the certificate as well. I have to translate it in order to apply Brevete A1 (one of the requirements is Certificado Estudios)

In Jr. Miro Quesada, some translators offered me from S/. 50 up to S/. 90 to translate it. Here is the one who charge me for S/. 50:

Mr. Edward Cruz Quevedo
Jr. Miro Quesada No. 376 - Of. 204 Lima, Telf: 01- 4273148

Good luck.

The stamps were required by the municipalidad in which I was married. Having it done by the official translator saved me the trouble of going to the government office (whose name I can't remember at the moment) and having it done there.

Liliana IBañez has been often recommended on this site.

She is inexpensive, reliable and has all the certifications.

I was quoted 20 centimos per word, which seemed OK until I realized that the document was 2800 words long, LOL! :D
