Russian and Ukrainian Translation in Chicago
The story of how Ukrainian and Russian immigrants helped create modern-day Chicago is an American tale familiar to many. But the individuals who brought this new culture to life were not simply farmers and factory workers, but considerable political activists and philanthropists. The effort was decades-long and involved numerous individuals and organizations, but its result is a city that is now known not simply for its architecture and cultural attractions but also for its strong sense of community.
Chicago’s Ukrainian-speaking population is about 46,000, while the Russian-speaking community is about 30,000. There are also places in Illinois where the percentage of Russians and Ukrainians living is quite large, reaching 10%, for example, Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Northbrook, Skokie, Glenview, Evanston, Arlington Heights, Oak Park, Des Plaines, Palatine, Urbana, Champaign, Schaumburg, Crystal Lake, Saint Charles, Downers Grove, Elgin, Melrose Park, Aurora, Bloomington, Joliet, Belleville, Rockford.

What is a certified translation?
To make a translation official it shall be certified in the destination country. In general, the certification procedure is not the same in different countries due to different requirements to translators’ credentials and acceptance of photocopies of originals, needless to say that a notary or a notary public must be commissioned in the country.
When certified translation shall be submitted in the United States we append our standard affidavit of translation accuracy to the translation produced on our computer stationery, print the translation and a copy of the original document out at one of our US locations, staple it together, sign the affidavit, get the signature certified by a notary public and mail it to the customer by expedited USPS/FedEx delivery service.
In the United States and in some other countries a photocopy of the original can be attached to the translation. However, in many countries, the original document shall be submitted to a notary who is supposed to verify it and authenticate the signature of the nationally certified translator. In such cases, the original document shall be mailed to us for forwarding to the destination country. We can also arrange the meeting with our representative in such country upon the client’s arrival for certification of the paperwork the same or next business day.
We can also certify translations in the consulate of the destination country upon specific customer request, though this option can be quite expensive due to courier and consular fees applied.
