Straker Translations provides convenient, efficient online translation service for any document that you may wish to submit to ECFMG or one of its programs, including ECFMG Certification, the Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPICSM), ERAS Support Services at ECFMG, and the Exchange Visitor Sponsorship Program (EVSP). Documents translated by Straker Translations meet ECFMG’s translation requirements and will not be rejected due to translation errors.
Fees charged by Straker Translations vary depending on the number of pages in the document that you wish to have translated, and the source language.
Note that you are not required to use Straker Translations, but translations from other services may not meet ECFMG’s translation requirements. For information on ECFMG’s translation requirements, see English Translations in the applicable edition of the ECFMG Information Booklet, available on the ECFMG website, or visit the English Translations section of the EPIC website.
To get started, you will need a PDF of the document that you wish to have translated, and you must use this page to submit your document for a price quote.
Once you have the PDF, complete the following steps:
Choose the source language of your document, and upload the PDF file.
Provide your name*, e-mail address*, country* and telephone number.
You will receive an immediate on-screen price quote from Straker Translations followed by an emailed quote. Review the price quote. If you would like to proceed with the translation, continue to step 4.
Follow the instructions in the price quote and make your on-line payment to Straker Translations.
Review and confirm the translated document returned to you via e-mail from Straker Translations. Please note: this is a review copy only and should not be submitted to ECFMG as the final certified translation.
Upload the final PDFs of your certified English translation document (certified translation includes the translator’s signature and seal) and your original language document (if required) to ECFMG via the appropriate on-line service.
