What Makes a Translation Argo Certified?





ISO Registration

International Standards Organization (ISO) registrations define a set of requirements that must be in place to have a quality management system, regardless of the organization’s size, product or service line, or public/private status. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar.

Notary Public Certified

As a Notary Public we are recognized as an official of integrity appointed by the state government of Illinois to serve as an impartial witness in performing official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important translated documents. Notarization adds an extra layer of certification that is required by the translation of documents that are legal in nature. We offer this service complimentary as part of Argo Certified Translation when required.
