What is personal document translation? What should be considered when translating this type of document, and what are the costs? Almost everyone has personal documents that cater to their work and life needs. Translating these documents has its unique considerations and requirements. Let’s explore this topic further in this article.


Each of us has documents that serve both our personal and professional lives. Personal documents refer to the type of documents that are managed privately by individuals, typically to facilitate their own personal or professional affairs.

Translating personal documents is essentially the process of converting personal documents from the source language to one or more target languages. The primary objective of translating personal documents is to fulfill an individual’s requirements in communication, visa applications, and various administrative procedures.

For example, candidates who wish to apply for international jobs need to translate their resumes. In addition, translating personal documents helps individuals communicate with foreigners through written text.

Why should we translate personal documents?

In the era of globalization, where exchanges and collaborations transcend domestic boundaries, personal document translation plays pivotal roles in the success of individuals and businesses. Here are the reasons why it is important to translate personal documents:

  2. ● Source language and target language: The translation cost is further escalated when dealing with language pairs that are exceptionally challenging and have a limited pool of available translators.
  3. ● Complexity: Documents of high complexity incur a higher translation cost.
  4. ● Additional requirements like Desktop Publishing (DTP) and Notarization may contribute to the overall cost.
