Interpretation is the transfer of speech from one language to another, whereas translation is the conversion of written text between two languages.

A professional interpreter is trained to meaningfully transfer speech from one language to another while applying techniques in real time to account for faster speech or unknown terms being used by the speaker.

Professional interpreters are typically linguists with a degree in the language that they interpret and may have national certification for interpretation in specific fields such as, medical interpreting or court interpreting.

Certified translators are individuals who have passed an official exam to determine their ability to accurately convert writing from one language to another.

LinguaOne translators are often linguists with a degree in the language they are translating and have typically traveled significantly abroad or lived in the country where the language is spoken as well.

Medical interpreters traditionally assist hospitals, clinics, or doctor’s offices by interpreting between patients and staff in various situations including, women in labor, emergency surgeries, day surgeries, and dental visits. 

Our on-call medical interpreters are asked to be at the hospital in 30 minutes or less after being requested. 

Meanwhile, hospital staff can connect in seconds with a video remote interpreter or telephonic interpreter until the on-call interpreter arrives.

One-page documents such as standard birth certificates and marriage certificates typically range from $60 to $90.

For multi-page documents, the cost will depend on several factors including the document’s word count, how common the language combination is, the amount of special formatting required, and the level of specialization needed for the subject.

One-page documents are typically delivered in 1 to 3 days.

For multi-page documents, the turnaround time will vary depending on the length and complexity of the document.

If you need your document delivered in less than 24 hours, we offer an expedited translation service for a fee of $150.

We will need to review your documents to provide a final quote. However, you can request a translation estimate by providing the following document information:

  • Word or Page count
  • Source language
  • Target language
  • Subject matter

Every document is reviewed, edited, and proofread by a certified translator with extensive training in the field of professional translation to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality translation possible.
