Translation Services

Translation services are available for Court-related documents to be used in the Family Justice Courts (FJC) legal proceedings in the four official languages, namely English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil.

The fee payable for a certified translation by an Interpreter of the Court is $45 per translated page.

The timeline for completion is at least four weeks or more, depending on the complexity of the documents. Applicants are requested to directly approach Counter 10 at the Registry located at level 1 of the FJC, 3 Havelock Square, Singapore 059725, to fill in the PDF Translation Request Form (290 KB) and to submit a copy of their source document for translation.

The officer at the counter will then inform the applicant that an assigned Interpreter/Translator will liaise with him/her via email.

The assigned Interpreter/Translator will follow up with the applicant concerning the confirmation of receiving the translation, rate of payment and the estimated collection date depending on the complexity of the document.

It is to be noted that the total translation fee will only be advised upon completion of the translation. After the translation is completed, an email regarding actual payment and mail-out date will be sent to the applicant.

Please note that in the event that the FJC’s Interpreters Section is unable to accept a translation request, parties and counsel should approach a private translation service instead
