It is best to clarify with the authorities of your destination country what type of certification you need for your documents. As a rule, official documents require notarisation. For countries that are part of the Hague Agreement, an apostille is also required; for countries that are not part of the Hague Agreement, you also need legalisation.
Depending on the complexity and subject area of the text, experienced translators complete around eight standard pages a day. That’s about 240 standard lines or 2,400 words.
