Translations can be provided via email as a pdf or printed as a hard copy.
We may need to see either the original document or a certified copy if it is a requirement of your application. If you send your original documents, we recommend you send them by courier enclosing a prepaid self-addressed postal bag and courier tracking sticker. We can translate from a scanned copy but this is noted on the translation, please check the requirements of your application.
Non standard documents such a diplomas, academic transcripts and support letters, that need to be translated in full are charged on a per word basis. We can provide you with a free quote once we have seen the document.
Documents can also be brought directly to our office at 21 Bealey Avenue, Christchurch. We are open 8.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
