Notarial / Real Estate Translations

We provide the expertise of translation services to a considerable number of customers in the acquisition and sale of real estate or for assistance with estate inheritance files (powers of attorney, deeds of probate, wills, etc.). The legal scope of our translations covers the entire French territory. We have daily working relationships with French Notaires perfectly at ease with the legal routine related to the acquisition or sale of a property or the settlement of an estate, acting as a link between the Notaire’s office, the solicitor and the private customer.


Translated and sworn documents are sent to you in scanned version (jpeg or pdf) by email at first. The paper copy is sent by La Poste in a second time, the same day or the next day.

The deadlines below may be extended by one or two days if the documents are sent from France, but in the vast majority of cases they are met. As mail delivery is the responsibility of La Poste, we cannot, however, contractually commit to meeting the announced deadlines.

1 to 4 pages – 4 to 5 professional days
5 to 9 pages – 5 to 7 professional days
10 pages and more – 7 to 10 business days
In some cases we can exceptionally process your request urgently, with much shorter deadlines. Do not hesitate to ask us if necessary.
