Certified translations of official documents such as certificates, diplomas, degrees, etc. are carried out by certified (sworn) translators.
The translation of individual documents usually costs between 30€ and 60€. The price depends on the volume and readability of the document. Many translation agencies or translators offer a discount if the translation of several documents is requested in a bundle. Requests to the listed translation agencies or translators can be made directly via the website or by e-mail. After that, the price for the translation is quoted and the offer can be accepted. The translation will then be delivered by post within a few days.

Information about the group
The Donations Team is responsible for raising donations in kind and money. In addition to donations from private individuals, our focus is on approaching companies and/or institutions to ensure larger donation volumes. In close cooperation with the association “Humanitäre Hilfe Ukraine”, we organise transports directly to the affected areas in Ukraine. Monetary donations received serve as a basis for the procurement of goods in this context. At the same time, we keep an eye on the needs of those arriving in Leipzig, coordinate distribution points and note urgent requests on our collaborative map. In addition, networking with actors from civil society and business to meet needs is part of our range of tasks.
