Do you have standard rates?

We do! The minimum charge for driver licences and standard one-page documents (e.g. birth certificates, police certificates, diplomas, etc.) is NZ$49. Prices for the translation of non-standard documents are calculated on a per-word basis, according to the work involved. Prices may vary according to the language and turnaround time requested, so it's always best to get in touch. That way, we'll be able to provide an accurate quote.

When can you deliver my translation?

We can do it yesterday! Just kidding, we can't go back in time, but we'll do our best to deliver your translation as soon as possible. Translations of standard one-page certificates and driver licences are usually ready the same day, or at the latest the next working day. Turnaround times vary according to the number and length of the documents, and our translators' availability. We can usually help you with an urgent job, but there may be a surcharge. Get in touch with us to find out when we can deliver your translation!

Will my translation be accepted by New Zealand Immigration, NZTA, or NZQA?

Absolutely, yes. Language Facilitation Ltd is approved by Immigration New Zealand, the New Zealand Transport Agency and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. Besides, we are both full members of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters, and Allyson, the director, is also a member of NAATI and AUSIT. Find out more about us here.

How will I receive my translation?

We can do everything online and send you a scan of the translation. The scan we send you is of the original translation, which is stamped and signed. Should you need a hard copy, you can pick it up from our office (by appointment), or we can courier it to you. Please note that there will be an additional postage fee.

How can I pay?

You can pay in cash on collection, via direct debit, credit card (online) or PayPal. Please note that credit card and PayPal payments incur in an additional payment portal fee. We do not have an EFTPOS on the premises at the moment.

Which languages do you cover?

We can translate documents from pretty much every language. We haven't found a translator for Klingon yet, but we're working on that! Get in touch to find out if we cover your language!

What type of documents do you translate?

If it's written, we translate it! It doesn't matter whether it's written on paper or in cyberspace. That includes driver licences and any kind of personal document, but also marketing material and websites. Get in touch to find out how we can help you!

a) Right to use documentation:
The Client warrants that any original documentation and its use by the Provider as requested by the Client shall be lawful and will not infringe the copyright or other rights of any third party, and the Client shall indemnify the Provider against any loss, damages, cost, expenses or other claims arising from any such infringement or illegality.
b) Confidentiality:
Any original documentation or information provided by the Client is confidential, and any translated or revised work and any information gained in the course of an interpreting assignment shall be kept confidential by the Provider. But the foregoing shall not apply to any documentation or other information which is or becomes public knowledge through no breach of this provision by the Provider.



a)  Delivery of translations shall be in the form and at the time agreed. Notwithstanding, time shall not be of the essence.

b) Additional fees will be payable in the event any of the following are required to complete any work:
i. any investigation, inquiry, or research beyond that for a normal routine translation required because of ambiguities in the item(s) to be translated;
ii. additional services required because the Client has made changes in the item(s) to be translated after confirmation of the order; and
iii. changes to a translated or revised text not required for accuracy, but requested by the Client after delivery, because of the Client’s preferences as to style or vocabulary.
c) All out-of-pocket travel expenses will be charged at cost. Motor vehicle travel will be charged at the Public Service Mileage rate issued by the IRD, applicable to the vehicle used for the purpose. Travel time will be charged at any rate agreed.
