Legal Translation Services

Most legal documents will require a certified translation, which we specialize in. We often supply certified translations of the following legal documents: marriage documents, divorce documents, birth certificates, contracts, and many more.

It is imperative to work with professional legal translators since any small margin of error in the translation of legal documents can significantly delay the outcome of legal processes. RushTranslate is a specialist in the legal field and has been trusted for many years to deliver first-rate legal translations.

It is important to note that the acceptance requirements of legal documents can vary. If you’re unsure about the acceptance of your documents, please contact us with your requirements.

We regularly perform translations for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and are intimately familiar with their requirements. Therefore we guarantee acceptance of our certified translations by USCIS.

As is the case with all translations, we take confidentiality very seriously and require all employees to sign an NDA as a condition of employment. If you would like us to provide our NDA (or sign yours), just let us know.

What is a Legal Translation?

Legal translation refers to the act of transferring legal information from one language to a different target language. Translating a legal document can often have its complications since the translator will often need to have a deep understanding of the legal system in multiple countries.

At RushTranslate, we've been providing legal translation services to companies, law firms, and other entities in need of our services since 2015. Our team of experienced legal translators have translated tens of thousands of legal documents and are prepared to help you with your specific use case.

Who are Legal Translation services for?

  • International law suits and court cases
  • International business partnerships
  • Applications for licenses internationally

There are many more use cases that could require the translation of legal documents, if you have any questions relating to your documents please feel free to contact us.

Does my Legal Translation need to be certified?

A certified legal translation is an exact word-for-word translation of a legal document. Most of our legal document translations are certified translations since that is what most receiving parties of legal documents request.

Please be sure to check the requirements of your receiving party to make sure you are submitting the correct translation type and to prevent any inefficiencies in legal processes.

Does my Legal Translation need to be notarized?

Notarizations of certified translations are a common add-on for our legal translation services. Notarization simply implies that a notary public will verify the identity of the signer of the Certificate of Translation Accuracy, which comes with each certified translation.

Please refer to the requirements of your receiving party to ensure that notarization is needed. We offer a 50-state valid notarization for your translation certification.

If you have questions about our notarization process please refer to this page.

Do I need an Apostille for my Legal translation?

Notarization is subject to domestic law, which means that as a US company when we notarize your certified translation, that notarization will only be valid inside the US.

If your translation's end-user is outside of the US then you will most likely need an apostille to authenticate that our notarization is valid.

Apostille's allow our US-based notarization process to be valid in the 116 countries of the Hague Convention.

If you have any questions about our apostille process please refer to this page.
