    These are some of the most frequently asked questions and rightly so! Please find some general information on how we work out our prices below. Please note that this is not a complete list so please contact us if you do not find the information that you were are looking for.

    What is a certified translation?

    A Certified Translation is when a document is translated and certified by a Translation agency such as DHCTranslations. We write that the translated document is a true and accurate translation of the original, stamp it with our ink stamp and sign and date it.

    How much does a translation cost?

    Typically translations cost £40 for small documents such as ID cards, driving licences, passports and smaller certificates. It would also cost £40 for medium and larger certificates respectively and then £0.09 per word. These are general prices for languages such as French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

    Please be aware prices may vary and depend on various factors such as the target / source language combination, the layout of the document and how fast the translation is required.

    How much does it cost to translate a page?

    It costs around £40 for say a French translation and £50 for a Chinese translation for the first page. The prices then become cheaper after the first page and the price is usually calculated by the amount of words. We really must emphasise that these prices are very general and depend on many factors. Please see our pricing comparison table below for some examples. Please note that we do provide over 100 languages; this is just a sample of our price list.
