NAATI Translators – Ask us about translating documents
Assisting you with document translation – NAATI accredited translators
In response to increasing requests for translations, we are proud to announce that we will start offering translation services through our network of NAATI accredited translators as part of our existing notary services.
If you are not sure whether you need to have your document translated, please check with your counterpart or your lawyer in the intended destination country.
Notary services focus on assisting you with your overseas document requirements. Generally, documents originating or signed in Australia must be notarised (and legalised through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and various foreign offices) before they will be accepted overseas.
We are often asked about translating documents from English into other languages, or from other languages into English because in providing notary services, we mainly deal with overseas documents. If the documents are not written in English or if English is not the main language of the intended destination country there may be a requirement for those documents to be translated from English or into English. Unfortunately, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will not provide you with translation services, and if you are not a foreign national of the intended destination country (or even if you are), the respective foreign office may also not assist you with translation or interpretation.
Through our network of NAATI accredited translators, we are able to assist you in translating your documents to meet the various legal and language requirements. To enquire about these translation services, please complete the enquiry form and provide us with as much information so that we can confirm a quote for these services.
The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters Limited (trading as NAATI) is the national standards and accreditation body for translators and interpreters in Australia. It is the only agency that issues accreditations for practitioners who wish to work in this profession in Australia.
