1. What are the types of documents that you translate?

Ultra Translate translates virtually all types of documents: government papers for immigration, medical text, legal case work, school diplomas and transcripts, technical manuals, journals, books, letters, websites, etc. Whether highly technical or very general content, Ultra Translate provides the highest translation quality possible by matching translators specializing in the subject area of your document with your text. Ultra Translate reserves the right to refuse to translate any text considered to be morally objectionable or illegal in nature. Return to top

2. What is a certified translation vs. a standard translation?

Ultra Translate certified translations are translations that have passed a rigorous set of translation checks and proofreading to guarantee absolute accuracy. These translations are then set onto Ultra Translate specific templates that correspond to US and international definitions of certified translations. These hardcopy (paper) translations include appropriate stamps and seals representing the Ultra Translate A.T.S. and A.T.A. corporate certification licenses, and final notarization by the responsible translating officer. We certify every document individually, not in "bulk" to insure absolute quality. These translations are guaranteed to meet all requirements for certified translations demanded by all major government agencies.

Ultra Translate standard translations meet the same high quality and checks of our certified translations. These translations are returned usually in the same file format as received. DTP layout is available for most languages. Business materials, manuals, magazine articles and so forth are types of standard translations often requested. Return to top

3. Do I need a certified and notarized translation?

If you are applying for any type of visa/passport/green card or virtually any matter at all with the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) or State Department, chances are you need a fully certified translation of any foreign documents. Likewise, for recognition of legal/medical diplomas and school transcripts, certified translations are always the safest guarantee of acceptance. Always check with the institution you are submitting your documents to for determining which documents need certification. Notarization of the official signature on the certified translation is always provided, to Exceed all US govt. certification standards, and also visibly demonstrate that the certified translation is from an accredited USA based agency.

4. Do you certify documents to be submitted to a non-US government agency?

Yes. We certify many documents, such as birth certificates, and legal agreements, needing to be certified for foreign agencies. Return to top

5. I have a document that has already been translated by an accredited translator - do I need to have it retranslated for certification?

In general, no. We will have to examine the translation for final determination, but if a qualified translator has previously translated the document we will need only the original copy and the translated text (preferably submitted as a Word document) sent to our offices. Our services will entail proofreading and formatting of the text along with final certification/notarization. Please indicate this when you submit your document. Return to top
