The Translation Department offers translations from and into all major languages, in fields such as accounting, advertising, art, business, information technology, education, law, medicine, science and technology.
About our translation services:
We provide translation of all types of texts:
- Educational (e.g. diplomas, certificates, transcripts, course descriptions, etc.)
- Legal (e.g. birth, death, marriage & divorce certificates; immigration documentation, etc.)
- Commercial (e.g. brochures, contracts, websites, etc.)
- Medical (reports and certificates)
- General (employment and recommendation letters, resumes, bank statements, tax records, etc.)
Our non-rush foreign credential evaluation service takes 10 business days and our non-rush translation service takes 5 business days. By choosing to have your academic credentials translated by JS&A, both your translation AND evaluation will be completed in only 12 business days instead of 15.
In addition, we offer expedited services of 3 business days, 24 hours and, whenever possible, same day service.
Our translations are widely accepted by the U.S. government, colleges and universities, boards of accountancy, and a variety of other licensing boards. A complete listing is found at our website: About Us
Our Foreign Credential Evaluation Department does not accept all outside translations. Translations prepared elsewhere and submitted for use in the evaluation process may be accepted under certain conditions. Such translations must be properly certified and done by translators who are ATA (American Translators Association) certified. Translations from outside the United States must be done by accredited or officially certified professional translators. We reserve the right to reject translations that do not meet our standards.
JS&A is a Corporate Member of the American Translators Association.
The cost of our translations is competitive with other major translation companies.
All our translations are certified and notarized at no extra cost to our clients.
Certified and notarized translations from and into all major languages

We also offer rush (24-hour & 3 business days) services for most translations.
Translation pricing is determined by the language, length and complexity of the text

Form of payment
You may pay in U.S. dollars by cashier's check, money order, or a check issued by a U.S. bank. If the check is issued by a foreign bank, the bank check must list the counterpart U.S. bank. We also accept payment by travelers' check and by credit card (Visa, MasterCard and Discover only). If you wish to pay by credit card, go to Downloads in the Services section of our website, download the Credit Card Information Form and follow the instructions.
Additional sets of translations
Additional translation copies requested at the time of the original service cost $20.00 each. Each additional certified copy requested after the translation has been completed costs $30.00 each up to one year from the date the translation was issued. After that date, each additional certified copy costs $50.00. We guarantee keeping these translations for up to three years. Add an additional $5.00 per copy if you would like your translation to be mailed in a specially sealed JS&A envelope.
If you wish to receive extra translations after your service has been completed, please download from our website the Application for Extra Foreign Credential Evaluation Reports and/or Translations. Extra translations will be identical to those previously issued. Any revision or addition to the translation will constitute a new translation, for which a new application form and a new fee must be submitted.
PLEASE NOTE: If we completed your translation more than a year ago, we no longer have a copy of your documents in the original language in our files. Please send said documents together with your application and the payment. An extra copy will not be issued without said documents.
Most universities and licensing boards require that translations be sent to them directly by our Company. However, some institutions will accept translations mailed to them by the applicant if they are received in an unopened, specially sealed JS&A envelope.
Be sure to provide us the full name and address for mailing translations to any location other than your address. Extra translations are usually mailed out in 10 business days. Rush mailing available, see pricing in the application.
