An official translation is the translation of a document, such as a birth certificate or academic transcript, with an accompanying certification or sworn statement from an authorised translator or agency. Official translations are usually required if you’re submitting a document issued in a foreign language to a government authority or organisation, as part of an application.

Espresso Translations was founded back in 2011 by Danilo and Niki, two translators who worked together to complete Italian-English translations. In its early days, Espresso Translations focussed solely on the Italian-English language pair, however, due to increasing numbers of requests for translations into other languages, Danilo and Niki began building a network of translators covering a broad range of languages. Over time both the translator network and demand grew, so in 2012 they decided to form a translation service provider. In 2018, the company became ISO 17100:2015 certified for translation quality standards. The business continues to grow rapidly, and today the agency has a 2000-strong translator network covering more than 150 language pairs.
