Request an Estimate

Ordering through the Translation Center is easy. Send an email to a description of your job and attach a sample of the content (e.g. a couple pages, or a short sample document etc.) and we will send you a free estimate.

Short-notice interpreting services can be requested by contacting the Center directly.

For more complex projects, please send us a description of the job and some sample files. One of our project managers will assess it and contact you directly. We find that taking a little extra time discussing your project, finding out more about your targeted audience and communication goals, is well worth the time. Often we can save you money by solving technical and workflow issues before they emerge.

If you would like to work with us, simply send us your document (mail, email attachment, or posted on a website), and we will translate it, format it, and send you an electronic copy or a final print copy that will be as the original to original as possible in style, layout, and format. Our turn-around time is fast: documents up to five pages can usually be returned within five business days. Longer documents vary based on length and complexity.
