Translation: English-French / French-English







The Alliance Française de Pasadena provides translation services for documents that do not require to be certified.

Basic cost is $75.00 for a single document (i.e. birth certificate, marriage certificate, etc.) up to 200 words ($0.20 per word above 200) although a final quote cannot be given until we have seen the original document.
Translation cost for a technical document will depend on the document’s length and level of difficulty.
Turnaround time is about 1 week depending on the length of the document.
