Certificate of Accuracy

Can you provide a certified translation?

Yes! We offer certified translations that are notarized by a public notary to satisfy requirements of some employers, universities and government agencies such as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, it is your responsibility to determine if you need a certificate of accuracy and how many certificates you require. We recommend that you ask the party who is receiving your document(s). If you are unsure, we recommend one certificate of accuracy per document.

Additionally, our company President, Virginia Anderson is one of only a few translators in the western United States certified by the French Consulate to hold the title of “Traductrice agréé”. A Traducteur agréé or Traductrice agréée (sworn translator) is often required for translations requested by government agencies of France and Québec, Canada.
