How to get your translation certified

How much does a translation cost?

Certificates: Most standard certificates that are issued by the Thai or British governments, for example, marriage, birth, name change, death certificates etc. can be translated within 7 working days from ฿800. We also offer a fast 24 hour service (Monday to Friday) from ฿1,200. (In rare cases we may need to charge more if the certificate is non-standard or contains more content than normal. In this case we will inform you before starting the translation)

Other Translations: The complexity and requirements for every translation vary so to provide an accurate and competitive quote we prefer to assess each assignment individually. The subject, deadline, size and frequency of your translation will effect the price so please provide as many details as possible, including the document/text you require translating, using the form above and we will get back to you as soon as possible with a quote.

What is a Legalised Translation?

A Legalised Translation is the highest level of certification. The Thai government (Thai Embassy in London) do not complete translations. They simply check translations against the original legal Thai document and stamp the translation to confirm that it is authentic and translated into English accurately. This legalisation process gives the translated document the same powers as the original. Sometimes, legalisation is required when you want to use a translation for an official purpose. For example, applying for a Schengen Visa.

Two Levels of Certification - How does it work?

There are two levels of certification. In order to use official Thai documents/certificates for an official purpose with a foreign government, you need to complete the two part certification process as follows;

1. Order a Certified Translation. This is the translation service we provide and you can easily submit your document using the form above.

2. A Royal Thai Embassy or Royal Thai Consular can legalise our certified translation. Read more about where/how you can get your translation legalised below.

Do I need my document legalised?

In many cases, such as a Schengen visa application, the translation of your certificate/official document will need to be legalised by a Thai authority to prove and certify that the translation is authentic and translated accurately from the Original Certificate/Document.

When making an application for a visa or similar, you will be asked to provide a certified translation. However, these applications do not always make it clear the level of certification required so it can be a confusing process trying to confirm what level of certification you need.

To make it easy, we suggest if you are using the translation for an official purpose, with a government authority for example, you should get your document legalised.

If you are using your document for other purposes (courts, solicitors etc.), certification by our translator should be sufficient unless otherwise stated.

We suggest you to get your certificates legalised to be on the safe side as the last thing you want is a refusal for a visa because of a missing process. If legalisation is not required this time, there may be another time in the future when legalisation is required and you will be ready and prepared.

Please note, this advise may not always be correct as applications and processes are constantly changing.
