Guidelines for Translating Written Documents

  • Please send your document in a Word format, not as a PDF. Google Docs will also be accepted, but Word is preferred.
  • Allow adequate time for translation. The amount of time will vary according to:
    • Current workload,
    • Technical content and graphic layout, and
    • The number of translations required for priority translation groups, the District Office, and the Principals.
