Proofreading Requests

Requests for proofreading must meet the required criteria:

The original translation must have been completed by a third party professional translator.
Requests must be accompanied by separate source and target documents.
The original translation must accurately reflect the source document in formatting and content.

Foreign Credits reserves the right to reject a request for proofreading and ask that you pay the difference for a translation order and/or refuse a proofreading request altogether.

Certification and Notarization

Certification verifies that the translation was completed by someone with competency in both the source and target languages. The notarization certifies the signature attached to said certification. Neither the certification nor the notarization attests to the accuracy of the translation or the validity of the source document. The certification and notarization statements will appear by default on the last page of the delivered file and will not be replicated on other pages unless explicitly requested.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Foreign Credits will not use any personal information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly authorized to do so by such individuals, other than to provide services described on this web site.
