Depending on staff availability, the China Center provides translation services to University of Minnesota system wide college and department clients. Oral translation services include administrative meetings, overseas programs collaboration, and visits of Chinese delegations.
Written translation service includes university legal contracts and agreements with Chinese partners universities. Please work with the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) on your agreements with overseas partner universities.
University of Minnesota faculy and staffs: Free of charge for university business cards. You will receive a printer-ready file to be printed when you submit your business card order to University Printing Services. Please email a scanned (PDF) copy of your English business card to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non-University clients: $50 each for a word document with items on business card translated. This document can be used by your designer or card producer to create a Chinese version of your organization's card.
Please note that the China Center staffs are NOT certified translators who can provide translation of official documents such as diplomas, academic degrees, transcripts, birth certificates, driver's licences, and marriage certificates.
For other simple documents, the cost is $50 per hour, with a minimum charge of $50. A rush fee of $50 may be applied to requests that require a faster turn-around than one business week. We encourage you to refer to the list of translating services agencies in the twin cities area compiled by the University of Minnesota International Students and Scholars Services Office. You may also contact the local Chinese travel agencies such as CIAC Travel or China Tribune.
