Translation Services: Services for the Internationally Minded

6/22/2014 04:38:00 PM · Comments

In the past two years, I have acquired such a breath of knowledge pertaining to international education. My international students come from thousands of miles to study in the United States, with hopes of attending some of the most prestigious universities in the country. Sometimes, it’s not the easiest transition, as documentation can often pose challenges for the family and student. International documents are often sent to translation agencies for language translations. Those documents sometimes include transcripts, financial and bank statements, and any legal related forms. The forms are often required to be in the second language of the speaker, for instance if a student is on an F-1 Visa.

Living in Florida, we are only privy to one translation agency, however I’ve come to find that many of my students are now having documents transcribed in the UK prior to attending institutions, or even just visiting on a work visa. It’s important to remember, however, to consider whether or not the agency you’re using is an accredited provider. To be quite honest, there aren’t many that are. Look for companies that not only offer language translations as well as many other services, but also agencies that have achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification as well as the DIN EN 15038 norm. This will ensure that your documents are in safe hands, and the process is seamless.
