Frequently Asked Questions about Certified Translations

Q: How long does a certified translation take?

Our project managers will confirm the turnaround time for certified translations of official documents, which is typically 2-3 business days. The turnaround time will vary depending on the language combination you request.

Q: Are your translations certified by OTTIAQ?

Yes. If you require certification of official documents for the Québec or Canadian Governments, you can rest assured that they are OTTIAQ certified or an equivalent certifying body based on needs.

Q: How much does a certified translation cost?

The cost of a certified translation can vary depending on what you must have translated and the language combination of the translation. Our project managers will provide you with a quote by email based on your requirements, which you can approve to kick off the process.

Q: How does the translation process work?

The certified translation process is relatively simple.

1. Provide us with an electronic version of the document you need translated. This document can be a picture or a scan of both the front and back (or each page within) and then submit it to Ad Astra. (You can use the form to the right.)

2. Once you submit your translation request, our project managers will create a quote and send it to you by email. The quote will also include a timeline for when your translation will be completed.

3. If you approve, we will start working on your project once you pay by credit card.

4. Once you submit your translation request, our project managers will create a quote and send it to you by email. The quote will also include a timeline for when your translation will be completed.
