Certified Translations for Academic Institutions

Chicago-based Immigration Translation Center offers certified and notarized translations for academic institutions in the United States and around the world. We have experience translating university diplomas as well as school transcripts and will quickly translate, certify and notarize all your academic documents.

If you need to translate a document in order to apply to a College or University outside the US, you will need an Apostil. For countries who are a member of The Hague Convention, your original transcript and the certified translation must be accompanied by an Apostil. We will make sure you get the necessary apostils with your Certified Translation.

Are you a foreign student wishing to study in the United States?

For many students, studying in the United States is your dream but there is a mountain of paperwork and personal documents to translate before making the leap to an American University. We can help international students overcome these challenges and make your dreams reality!

  • Do you need your foreign diploma and qualifications recognized in the U.S. or Canada?
  • Do you need credit recognition?

  • Would like to attend undergraduate or graduate schools in the United States or Canada?
  • Wish to travel the world and teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) abroad?
  • Need your application for student visa translated?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you will need some academic and personal documents translated and we can facilitate the process. Each page of your translated document includes our company seal for proof of authenticity and to diminish the possibility of fraud.
