FAQs –Everything you Want to Know About German–English Translation Services

Yes. Our German–English translations are done by professional language experts with current NAATI translator accreditation, and as such are recognised by most Australian authorities, as well as most overseas authorities.

Our translations are carried out by language professionals with NAATI translator certification and certified as such by means of a certification statement and a stamp. This is what is commonly called “NAATI translation” or “NAATI-certified translation”, although in Australia, it is not the translation that is certified, but the translator. NAATI, a regulatory body for translators in Australia, certifies translators, but not translations.
If you need a translation for an official purpose, then this is exactly what you need: a translation carried out by a NAATI-certified translator that is certifies as such.
The NAATI certification level of our German–English translators is “professional” (formerly called “Level 3”), which can be considered the “gold standard” of the translation industry in Australia when it comes to official purposes such as visa translations, immigration translations, etc.

The costs depend on the type of document. For personal documents as well as immigration translations and visa translations (produced by a linguist with NAATI translator accreditation), please check out the pricing page.

We can provide colour PDF files or originals in the mail, or both. You decide. A range of international and domestic courier options for urgent German–English translations is also available.

No, but we gladly refer you to other NAATI-accredited translators who can translate documents in the required language. Try The Migration Translators if your enquiry is about an immigration translation, or Aussie Translations for a full-service translation agency.

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve received the translated document and wanted to thank you for completing the translation so quickly. I’m very happy with the result, it looks fantastic and is translated perfectly.

Chris translated some documents for my Victorian teaching application. His service was very reliable, fast, and he beat several other quotes I had obtained. Communication was easy and quick. I would definitely use him again and can therefore recommend Dammann German-English Translations.
