Why do I need a professional? Can’t I just ask my friend to do it?

When it comes to your French to English translation needs, you need a trained professional who understands what you need and has the skills to get the job done quickly and reliably. As a professional, I can make sure your documents are translated clearly and in language you and your clients understand. If you’re applying for a skills assessment or for certain visas, it will often be a requirement to have your documents translated by a professional translator that is accredited by NAATI.

Why do I need a NAATI accredited French translator?

NAATI, or the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, accredits translators and interpreters in Australia. Many government agencies in Australia require documents to be translated by NAATI accredited translators. This is done to ensure quality is high and that standards are met. If you have official documents in French to be translated, you will need to hire a NAATI accredited French translator such as myself.

Can you translate my birth certificate, diploma, driver’s licence, etc.?

Yes! As a NAATI accredited professional translator, I am qualified to translate documents for most official purposes. I have extensive experience translating driver’s licences, birth certificates, marriage certificates, diplomas and university transcripts. I am familiar with the requirements and expectations of the Department of Immigration and a variety of organisations that perform skills assessment, including the Australian Psychological Society, the Australian Computer Society, and the Australian Dental Council, just to name a few.

How much does it cost?

The cost of your translation or interpretation will depend on your particular needs. Interpreting rates will also depend on the type (or mode) of interpreting needed and the amount of preparation required.

Translation rates are generally based on the length and complexity of the text involved as well as turnaround. Translators generally bill per word or per page. Short translations may also be subject to a minimum fee. Contact me today for a free, individualised quote today.
