Translation Agency of Alberta provides certified, notarized and authenticated translations of legal documents to be used outside Canada. Usually the types of documents used outside of Canada are translated for marriage, permanent residency, education, pension applications, business purposes, immigration (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, USCIS).
Mexican, Cuban, Russian, Spanish and some other consulates specifically require translations to be notarized ($40/doc. extra) and sometimes authenticated by mail in Ottawa. Italy and Ecuador require ATIO-certification (from $89). Other consulates are mostly satisfied with regular certified translations (from $59).
Prepare all documents in a timely fashion. Keep in mind that the translation preparation for foreign authorities can take weeks, and if declined for any reason it will take time to re-do.
Be sure to find out the type of certification required by the foreign organization. Is notarization required? How about or legalization? These all require different types of stamps and signatures. Failing to research the type of certification needed may result in rejection of the translation.
