We are not the cheapest translation service, but our certified translations of official documents are guaranteed to be accepted for immigration, residency, lawsuits, criminal cases, university admissions, employment, passports, professional credential boards, USCIS, DMV, DPS, etc.
What sets us apart is our physical office where you can come in and speak to a translator face-to-face; our personal service by phone, chat or email from an actual translator (not a call center); the ability to pay in cash, check, or credit card, online or over the phone; and the wealth of professional and academic experience of our degreed translators that comes from having successfully prepared thousands of certified translations.
Many end users will require a translation certified by the translator; others require that this translator be certified by the American Translators Association, or that the translator sign the certification before a Notary Public, or that the certified, notarized translation be authenticated or apostilled by the Secretary of State. We carefully evaluate your needs to be sure that you get exactly the type of document translation you need, especially in complex, international transactions involving a variety of documents and multiple legalization steps.
Turnaround time depends on our current workload. The quickest and most accurate way to place your order is online:

Trudi says: "What an amazing experience. If you want someone who knows what they are doing and can get it done in record time. This is your person. Cut a long story short there were a lot of components we were dealing with. We had been to several places who had given us the wrong advice or were not able to help, even the consulate advice was different. These guys did all the research and did everything properly. There were no problems at all at the other end. I would recommend them very highly."
Luke says: "I used Marco at Austin Certified to translate my birth certificate & my fiance's birth certificate from English to Spanish for our upcoming wedding in Mexico. I am VERY glad that I finally found his service!!! I had been getting quotes from a bunch of different places and they were either astronomically priced ($550 quote) or the less expensive services ($25-$35 for translations) were ridiculous to deal with, to the point where I hung up on two of them, because of the lack of customer service & knowledge! Marco knew exactly what was needed for my documents to be considered legal in both the U.S. & Mexico, so that they could be used for a "legally binding" wedding in Mexico for both countries! He was able to translate, certify & GET MY DOCS NOTARIZED, so that I could bring them to The Secretary of States' Office to have them apostilled. Although his price was higher than the very cheap places, it was still reasonable & the GREAT SERVICE & just the knowledge to answer some of my questions alone were worth it! I highly recommend his services."
