Translation Services

The Language Exchange has been providing fast, accurate & confidential language services worldwide since 1986.

The Language Exchange manages translation projects including  Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates and Transcripts.  The Language Exchange manages translations services for many industries including:


We contract with translators who provide fast and accurate translations in their specialty.  We network with more than 400 professional translators. An experienced Project Manager on staff works with translators and clients locally and internationally.  Every translator has a B.A. or B.S. degree or equivalent and is accredited by the American Translator Association (ATA) or has similar certification in order to contract with us.

To ensure accuracy and consistency of style and usage, all translations go through a careful review process. Professional linguists with whom we contract re-check translations with the original to ensure that the final product is an error-free, linguistically and semantically sound version of the original material.

Since we first opened our doors in 1986, the Language Exchange has worked with professional linguists who have produced thousands of translations of the highest quality.

Legal Translators

 Legal translation services will be of special interest to those who are conducting business with companies around the world. Legal translators are specifically certified to translate legal documents of every description including Birth and Marriage Certificates along with Immigration Documents. These translators provide accurate, professional translation for courts and attorneys as well as other government, judicial and law enforcement agencies.

The Language Exchange works with a phenomenal certified attorney-translator who educates everyone about Spanish translations provided by (for example) school districts.  Read more about Plain English and Written Translations.
