Peter, Thank you for the information! I was not familiar with the phone number you gave me, so I did an on-line search. The company is called ACR Language Translation Services. I am still waiting for their "instant" quote, but if I don't hear from them by Monday I'll give them a call.
I followed the instructions given on their website:
"Send us an email.......You will instantly receive information...."
I'm not requesting an evaluation, I just thought I'd post the translation that I received.
By the way, the company you posted above is too expensive for me. They charge $95 to translate 1 birth certificate, $65 for a second, and $55 for a third. If the translations need to be notarized, then there is an additional fee of $35 for each.
I do certificate translations too and I totally agree with you, some of these 'companies' charge an arm and a leg... Putting on my own 'translation hat' I usually charge around $20/$25 per certificate and on occasion, if there are a lot to do, I'll do them in exchange for a donation to my site or to a charity of my choice. I can get a legal 'asseveramento' (translators oath) on any documents, if required, by a Justice of the Peace in Italy too. That's not that expensive either...
But I don't advertise my work as I'm just a one person set up, but I would be ashamed to charge what some of them do. I work mainly by word of mouth and have done quite a few translations of this kind for members here. Other translations that I do here on Italian Genealogy, I do because I enjoy helping people. I'm not looking to become a zillionaire, but just make enough to keep the wolf from my door!
