Apostilles and Translations

Postby runningoat5 » 27 Apr 2008, 03:52

Hi All (again),

It seems that there is really only one place can get apostilles for my documents but I have seen at least two options for getting my documents translated. Does anyone have any suggested placed that are particularly cheap, fast, or both? I've had trouble finding definitive information online so far.

Thanks!!!

Some consulates have lists of translators whose work they will accept - others don't mind who you use as long as the translations are of good quality and acceptable to them...

Translations that I have done have been refused by some and accepted by others. Ther's just no telling if you chance it. As the saying goes "You pays your money - you takes your chance!"

But your best bet is to ASK at the consulate you will be dealing with what their policy is regarding this question. That is safer than getting everything ready only to find that some 'Jobsworth' in a consulate is having a bad day! and THAT is a real possibility - believe me.
