A new Tomedes client approached us recently, in need of an urgent translation. He had just 24 hours to obtain an English copy of his marriage certificate. As such, our Italian translator stepped up to help.
Tomedes works with expert Italian linguists covering Italian to English translation. For translation into English, as this client required, we use native English speakers. It makes for better quality translations when the translator speaks the target language natively, at least in our experience.
That experience spans more than a decade, during which time our translation services have helped clients around the globe. We’ve worked hard to build up a network of Italian translators with a range of specialist expertise, from those with medical backgrounds to those who are experts in legal translation.

A Romance language descended from Vulgar Latin, modern-day Italian is spoken as an official language in Italy, Switzerland, San Marino and Vatican City, as well as a minority language in Croatia and Slovenia. Italian is also spoken in parts of Africa, as well as by expats in Australia and the US.
Within the European Union, Italian is the fourth most widely spoken first language. 13% of the EU population speaks it natively – some 69 million people (of a total of 90 million Italian speakers worldwide).
The Italian language has rich cultural and historical associations, from opera to the art world. Intrinsically intertwined with the Renaissance (‘il Rinascimento’), it is a language associated with poetry, beauty and cultural advancement. It is also considered by many to be the language of love – an accolade for which it competes with French!
Nowadays, our Italian translation meets the needs of clients around the world. Italian translation for business clients is particularly popular. Picture Italian exports and pasta, parmesan and wine probably spring to mind. However, Italy’s main export category is precision machinery, which accounts for some 18% of total exports. That’s followed by metals and metal products, at 13%.
The companies exporting such goods often need to send them on their way with documentation in other languages. That ranges from packaging to operating instructions to health and safety information. Professional translation services play a key role in enabling Italy to trade with the rest of the world in this way, as they do for all countries that export their products and services around the world.
Tomedes has translated countless certificates over the years. For marriage certificates to decree absolutes, our certificate translation service has covered the entire romantic spectrum! We also have experience of translating birth certificates, death certificates, education certificates and more – often to tight timescales.
We’ve found that many of our clients – including this one – need to use our certified translation service as part of the certificate translation process. This ensures that they can demonstrate the authenticity of the translated document. It’s something that official bodies often require and is a service that we are happy to provide for any document.
In this client’s case, he not only needed to use our certified translation service, but also our rush translation service. We can provide legal translation at surprisingly affordable costs for all manner of documents, even at short notice. From business clients with important meetings fast approaching to clients with personal translations such as this individual’s marriage certificate, our urgent translation service is available to all.
In this case, that meant a 24-hour turnaround. As such, we got straight to work, quickly sourcing the perfect translator and setting her to work on the client’s document. Our translator’s experience included a number of previous certificate translation jobs, many of them completed under intense time pressure.
We always strive to pair our translators with the jobs at hand like this, ensuring the best match of talents and opportunities. It’s a policy that keeps our translators happy, as they can work on the types of documents that most inspire them. It also keeps our clients happy, as they receive top quality translations that are produced swiftly and efficiently.
One of the wonderful aspects of working in the translation and interpretation sector is the opportunity to enjoy such variety within the daily routine. We never know which of our extensive range of translation services will be needed next. For this client, urgent Italian certificate translation was the order of the day. Tomorrow’s clients might need Spanish business translation or Mandarin legal translation – all of which we will need to find expert linguists for from within our extensive global network.
