What is the difference between certified NAATI translations and regular translations?

Certified and non-certified translations in fact go through the quality assurance procedures.  Therefore a certified translation does not affect the quality and accuracy of the translation. Certified NAATI translations are usually required for immigration and Visa applications and legal documents.

Do I require a hard copy of my translation?

To have any legal value the source document and also the translation must be in hard copy format.  The certified NAATI translator must also stamp and sign all pages of the translation.

Do I require an apostille when translating into a foreign language?

For certified translations going into a foreign language that need to be legalised in a foreign country you may also require an Apostille.  You will need to check with the relevant Embassy or Consulate. DS5 Translations will translate this Apostille with the documents.

How much will my certified translation cost?

The cost for a NAATI certified translation of a one page certificate starts from $69.00
