Russian Translation in San Francisco
San Francisco’s Russian-speaking population is about 20,000. San Francisco is a wonderful place for Russian immigrants to live. The culture is rich, and the opportunities are immense. Russian-borns enjoy success and well-paying jobs at world-famous companies (BNP Paribas, Gap, Decathlon, Salesforce, Sephora, etc.).
For those who want to continue their Russian education and get a good education in the USA, there are many good educational institutions: University of California—Berkeley, University of San Francisco, St. Mary’s College of California, Mills College, Dominican University of California, San Francisco State University, Holy Names University, Notre Dame de Namur University.

We, as a network of certified Russian translators, provide certified Russian translation services as well as Ukrainian translation. All Russian translators are highly qualified and experienced. They are native speakers.
Translation certification procedures for different countries differ markedly. If you submit the document to Russian authorities, it must be certified by a Russian translator and notarized in Russia. USA certification is not acceptable.
A rule of thumb is that a translation should be produced in an accepting country where a document is supposed to be submitted. If a foreign document is to be submitted in the United States, then its translation has to be certified/notarized in the U.S. in order to satisfy an accepting body on the territory of the United States. A foreign notary public cannot be considered the U.S. authority, and a foreign notary certification is not valid on the territory of the United States. The same goes with translations of domestic documents intended for foreign countries. The foreign country notary public should notarize such translation or it won’t be accepted in that country. Therefore, a translation ought to be produced and certified in a respective foreign country. There is one exception though, which represents an option of using services of foreign consular offices.
Unfortunately, Russian Consulate in San Francisco was closed in September 2017. Now California is served by the Washington Embassy of the Russian Federation. We do provide translation services for US documents to be submitted to Russian Embassy in Washington.
We do provide translation services for documents to be submitted to San Francisco Ukrainian Consulate.
There is no Belarussian Consulate in San Francisco. But we can prepare translation for the Embassy of Belarus in Washington and the Consulate General of Belarus in New York. The US document must be apostilled before translation, translation must be notarized, and after that, the translation should be Apostilled.
