We have a simple, Upfront Pricing.

For Sworn / certified translations: the cost depends on the amount of pages translated. Our cost is R350 per page. A page is defined as: 250 words or fewer (including numbers), one-sided, and letter-size (8.5″ x 11″) or A4 dimensions or smaller. An excess of 250 words on a page would be considered additional pages and priced accordingly at the same rate of R 350 per every 250 words.

Our business translations are priced by the word. Our price is R1.30 per word with a minimum charge of R350 per order. Numbers are included in our word count. We believe in transparent pricing so you know the cost before purchasing.

Usually there are questions in the frequently Asked Questions about Portuguese Translation Services about this. We translate to Brazilian and European Portuguese and we can also adapt your translation to another Portuguese-speaking country. We adapt our document for either Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, etc….

All documents are treated with the highest degree of confidentiality. Our in-house staff members and translators understand our confidentiality obligation, and have signed non-disclosure agreements in order to work for SpeakPortuguese. When requested, we are happy to sign a Confidentiality Agreement.

 

H. What is a certified/ sworn translation? When is it necessary?

In South Africa, a certified translation is a translation produced by a certified translator. This means a translator with a certain level of training or experience who has taken an oath in court in South Africa, entitling him/her to translate certain official documents. Sworn translations are always needed when a translation is to be used for administration purposes or governmental requirements such as birth certificates, academic certificates or declarations

 

I. What is the difference between a translator and an interpreter?

A translator works with written material. An interpreter works with spoken language. Translators take a document written in one language and rewrite it in another language. Interpreters listen to spoken words in one language and repeat the same message in another language.
