Legal Documents Translation Services

Does anyone have a recommendation for a reliable company?

(I can't see myself sending every legal doc I have to a random company off the internet)

I have used many services and have found Targem Translations to be the best.  Feel free to PM me with specific questions.

They were pretty good for Hebrew translations from beis din to Court.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

They were accepted by the Court. I have seen them make rookie mistakes in their affidavits that I caught but seem to be part of their boilerplate. The translation was serviceable but not word for word the way it should have been. So it served the  purpose I needed but wasnt perfect.

Depends what your purpose is.  If you already know what the document says and just need to get the information in front of the court but aren't too concerned about 100% accuracy, just go for the cheapest certified translator you can find.  I've used Donnelly Language Solutions and TransPerfect.  Both are good. 

Also, keep in mind that there is no official standard for translators.  That means that even a translation prepared by a non-certified translator will generally be accepted by a court as long as it is accompanied by an affidavit stating that the translator is fluent in both language.

Don't have experience with courts, but I have done same for friends who needed documents translated for immigration purposes.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
