Passport is a very important document, which represents a person’s identity and citizenship, and also needed to visit a foreign country for number of purposes like tourism, education, business etc. the official of the destination country inspects the passport while reading the content to authenticate someone’s name, age and address etc. If the content of passport is in such a language, which officials can’t read then the candidate is supposed to get the passport translated in required language.
To understand the nature of the job, you can consider following situation. Suppose, you are a candidate wishing to visit a foreign country; you are a citizen of an Arab country and going to apply for Russian visa. If the content of your passport is in Arabic language then you will require having your passport translation in Russian language.
Who provides Russian language translation services?
Translation agencies, translation services providers or a freelance content writer provides passport translation services. A translation agency is not like other physical organizations having large number of people, big building, and other infrastructure etc.
A translation agency hires freelance translators or linguists to translate different types of documents, certificates or other content etc.
Nobody requires a translation on regular basis like other services and goods that’s why the job of a translator is not regular. Translation agency contacts a translator when it has a translation task.
Information about the translation project like source language, target language, deadline, prices etc is provided by the translation agency to the translator. If the translator is interested and ready to accept the terms and conditions, he sends a confirmation to the translation agency and the translation agency confirms to the client.
What are the charges?
There is no thumb rule. Different translation agencies have different quotations, which depends on language pair and deadline. Normally, foreign languages like Russian, German, French, and Czech are costlier than local Indian languages such as Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil etc.
