Are some sworn translations more expensive than others?

Of course, a English sworn translation is cheap compared to an official Ukrainian translation, for example. This is because there are more than 1000 official English translators on the official list of sworn translators and only 4 Ukrainian translators. Likewise, translating an officially valid birth or death certificate is cheaper than a sworn translation of a company's articles of association or accounts, both in terms of length and complexity. Similarly, certified translations in the United States (USCIS) or in the United Kingdom or Ireland are generally cheaper than translations sworn in Spain. We therefore insist on the convenience of requesting a free, no-obligation quote to find out the cost in advance.

What are the rates for sworn translations by official translators in Spain?

Before online companies existed, such as our online sworn translation agency, the rates for a sworn translator varied from one Spanish province to another. This continues to happen in the case of sworn interpreting services in court or at notaries' offices, but not in the case of official written translations. In fact, translations with an official stamp are usually sent to the client by express courier within 24 hours, regardless of where the client and the certified translator reside.
