When it comes to translations, you have several options to choose from:
This option applies to texts, the understanding and translation of which require professional knowledge. These are always assigned to a translator specialising in the given filed. The types of specialised translations we most often deal with include:
- financial and banking
- medical and pharmaceutical
- marketing and PR
- EU documents
- web pages (www)
If the specialised option is selected, our translator, while translating the text, takes into account the client’s recommendations. The translator also performs a self-proofread of the translation.
Specialized PLUS option
Under this option, the translation that requires professional knowledge in a given subject is performed with the additional proofread by a second translator specialist.
These type of translations apply to official documents: identity cards, deeds, legal documents, diplomas, copies of registers, etc. Sworn translations are delivered in writing and certified with an official stamp and the translator’s signature, confirming that the translation reflects the source document (authentication). Sworn translations are prepared at the request of public offices, courts, and also for the needs of public procurements.
Sworn translation, or certified translation is a type of translation performed by a sworn translator. A sworn translator is a type of translator who received their translation rights from the Ministry of Justice and is registered as such. To become a Sworn Translator there is a requirement to sit a special examination put together and run by the Ministry of Justice. In Poland, a sworn translator can provide services according to the Act on the Profession of Sworn Translator. This Act entered into force on 27th January 2005. Sworn translations are usually required by state offices, courts, police, prosecutor’s offices and organisations running tender processes.
Proofreading and verification of a third party translation
This is an extra service, which BALAJCZA offers its Clients within the scope of its translation services.
BALAJCZA Specialized Translations provides the following types of interpreting services:
- simultaneous interpreting
Interpreting of this kind is performed on an ongoing basis over the speech of the speaker. There are a number of options:
- interpreting in a cabin – always conducted by two interpreters in a soundproof booth and using equipment for sound transmission; it requires the cooperation of two interpreters, changing at half-hour intervals; it is most often used during international conferences, congresses, etc.
- whispered interpreting – French origin “chuchotage”: the interpreter translates simultaneously in a low voice the speech of the speaker for a small group of (usually two- or three-) listeners
- consecutive interpreting
Here the interpreter starts interpreting once the speaker has finished a part of their speech. Most often this service is used during official speeches, conferences, business talks and business meetings. If carried out at a state office or in a court, the services of a sworn translator may be required.
- by telephone – the interpreter works on the phone at the client’s site or through the use of modern telecommunication technologies that allow the juxtaposition of a conversation between three telephone lines at the same time. The interpreter can talk on the phone with the client and at the same time with the person speaking in a foreign language: all three people can hear each other.
- during a client’s trip – an interpreter accompanies our client during their entire trip (travel and stay) in Poland, but also abroad
- while recording audio / video – the work of our interpreters can be recorded on audio or video
- film dubbing- a translator prepares the text for the dubbing of a film
BALAJCZA’s clients most often order the following sworn (certified) translations:
documentation related to running a business: invoices, Tax ID, VAT UE, National Business Register Number, register entries, NCR extracts, etc.,
birth, death and marriage certificates,
legal documentations: notarial deeds of property sale/purchase, employment contracts, trade agreements, court rulings and provisions, powers of attorney,

At BALAJCZA the basic charge for sworn and normal translations is calculated using the number of standard pages, whereas one standard page of a sworn translation amounts to 1125 characters with spaces. This number has been established by the Ministry and applies to all sworn translations carried out in Poland, irrespective of the subject and the language used in the documentation. The translator’s compensation for a sworn translation is also ruled by the Justice Minister’s order. The charge applied for sworn translations is usually higher than for normal translations due to their specific character, as described above.

Marketing translations require both an in-depth understanding of the source text and familiarity with the culture of the target language. Marketing texts are governed by their own laws, structurally complex, often employ regional jargon. Here, the essence lies in conveying the idea of an advertising message in the cultural reality of a given country so as to improve customer awareness of a given company.
Our translators have vast experience in working with marketing and public relations texts: from brochures and mailing campaign texts, to press releases, client success stories and company profiles. We adapt the style and register to the clients’ preferences.
Marketing texts require more than just textbook knowledge of the industry – here creativity and intuition on the part of the translator are needed. Marketing texts, bearing all their messages, require a certain lightness, uniqueness and originality.
A short list of our most common translation services for the marketing industry:
- brochures, pamphlets
- web-site content
- client success stories
- “literal” translation – for further editing
- intuitive advertising messages (local knowledge required)
