Official documents such as birth certificates, degrees/diplomas/certificates, transcripts and driver's licenses are issued in different ways in different countries, and there are certain formats and procedures that can be used when translating those documents into English.

This workshop aims to clarify some of the questions the STIBC office has received over the years and give suggested guidelines to members who would like to do official document translations.

The following topics will be covered in this workshop:

- accepting/receiving documents to be translated
- saving/storing documents
- creating templates
- translating
- preparing translator's statement
- preparing your translation package
- delivering your translation package to clients
- invoicing

There will be a Q&A session at the end of the workshop.
