Certified Translation

Certified translations are for official uses where your receiver requires certification to verify that the translation is complete and accurate. This type of translation is commonly required for submission to U.S. Immigration (USCIS), universities, courts and many local, state, and federal governments. The translation must be a literal (word-for-word) translation of all visible text to satisfy the complete requirement. Translators cannot add/remove text or interpret the meaning behind the text. For vital documents such as birth certificates that requirement doesn’t typically prove to be noticeable, but for other types of documents that contain full sentences with more nuance it can undoubtedly be. This requirement is vital for your receiver so that they can have confidence that the translation exactly represents the original source material. The translation certification must attest to the fact that the translation was performed by a qualified translator fluent in the language pair to satisfy the accurate requirement. We only use professional human translators and 100% of our workforce meets this requirement. An authorized signer attests to this fact on the certification. We also include free revisions to ensure the final translation is 100% accurate. We take additional steps when preparing your translation packet to ensure acceptance by the widest range of receivers. We provide all certified translations on company letterhead with order and page numbers across all pages along with our contact info and ATA corporate member number. Our certification also specifies that the translator has no relation, personal or otherwise, to the owner of the document and when needed we can have the certification notarized to authenticate the identity of the authorized signer and provide you with the original copies including wet ink signatures. RushTranslate is among the largest providers of certified translations in the United States. Our services are utilized by tens of thousands businesses and individuals every year because we consistently deliver high quality translations quickly and affordably.

Ready to get your translation started?


Word Magic Software, from its inception in 1989, is dedicated to offering a set of complementary software products geared for the English-Spanish language translation, corporate communications, and education markets.

The company was initially established as a personal project of Ricardo Argüello founder and current President, when he created a DOS based database dictionary and translator for teaching English to his children. A few years later, Windows versions of the Word Magic solutions were made commercially available.

A major milestone for the organization was circa 1996 when Word Magic became an early e-commerce pioneer, establishing its web site in order to market its newest version of Translation Dictionary & Tools (translation dictionaries) over the Internet. The company’s next product, the award-winning English-Spanish automatic text translator, was developed over the ensuing two years, and was launched in 1998 as ESI (English-Spanish Interpreter). This technology offers translation construction based on artificial intelligence, using the context and semantics of each individual sentence, producing translations into Spanish. The accuracy achieved is yet to be matched by others in the industry.
