Translation Services:
What is a Translation?

Translations and evaluations are not actually the same thing. Evaluations deal with equivalencies while translations deal with languages. We love languages but we do require certified English translations of all foreign-language documents. If your documents were originally issued in English, you can indicate that below and move on. If your documents were originally issued in another language, you must have your documents translated:
  1. You can provide a certified translation from another professional translator or company. If you provide a translation completed in the United States, it must be performed by a member of the American Translators Association (ATA). We also accept professional translations from other countries as long as the translator is officially certified within that country, but keep in mind the translation is subject to approval.

Verification Services:
What is Verification?

Verification is the process by which we check documents for authenticity. Please read through the options below carefully.

Verification of Post-Secondary Studies (College/University)

All post-secondary documents require additional verification, with few exceptions.

Option 1 - Documents Direct:

You can arrange for your foreign university or college to send your official transcripts directly to SpanTran by mail or by email. We will provide more instructions after you submit this application. If you have completed your program of study AND earned the credential/qualification/degree/diploma/etc., the verification must include the name of the credential you were awarded and the date it was awarded. Please make sure your institution includes this information.

Processing times for verification services may vary depending on your country and institution of study.
