You can either submit your documents electronically (by e-mail to or call us to make an appointment to visit our offices in person, bringing the documents with you when you come. Appointments are available on weekdays from 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

Discounts are available for private clients who are happy to conduct the whole process electronically (i.e. sending documents and receiving a quotation by e-mail, paying via bank transfer or over the telephone, receiving completed translations by e-mail or post).

Certified & Official Translations

We can also provide a certificate verifying your translation, which is provided on official company letterhead and confirms that the translation is a true and correct translation undertaken by a professional translation company.

For certain official documents we can arrange notarisation by a notary public if required. If you are unsure as to whether you need your translation to be certified or notarised, please check with the institution or body that you will ultimately be sending your translation to.

Please note that unfortunately we cannot advise on different institutions’ certification requirements.

Here's a small sample of reviews from our many satisfied customers:


Jill Bennett
I was really impressed with AST Language Services. They were extremely quick to respond, the information and quote they provided was very clearly laid out, and the turnaround of the work was far quicker than I expected. I would not hesitate to use them again.
