Well, the word means exactly as it sounds. Specifically, it refers to the company that handles translation of various documents ranging from business-related to study report.
Why is it important?
Translation agency is especially needed to interpret legal, public, and private documentation accurately and precisely. It is very important for students, parents, and businessmen to get their documents translated in advance before studying or operating their transaction overseas. Land owner who wishes to rent or sell their properties to a foreigner will also be required to get their contracts interpreted formally.

The agency provide translation service of every kind of documents, including:
General document: refers to the common record we encounter in our daily lives. It is very essential since we need it in almost every transaction in the society. General document can be divided into 3 categories:
Academic: the document concerning academic information, performance, and studying status of students. Those are certification letter, thesis, journal, book report, academic achievement, transcript, and so on. Some of the mentioned documents are extremely vital if you are considering studying abroad either via exchange programs or scholarships.
Business: business-related information including invoice, quotation, proposal, packing slip, financial statement, business’ report…. These documents are typical both when doing trade with customers, suppliers and when welcoming a new investor.
Government: the document involving the state such as identity document, license, family book, birth certificate, constitutional document, manifesto, summon. Family book, identity documents and birth certificates are the main required documents when it comes to traveling or studying overseas.
Legal document: a formal legal information that grants or proves the grant of a right. It includes complaint, police report, contract, easement, mortgage, articles of incorporation, bylaw, partnership agreement, will etc. All of these documents are significant, specifically, without a proper will, your estates may not go to your loved ones; your spouse may not receive your entire asset. Moreover, your legacy may go to others through remarriage, divorce, or liability. Similarly, contracts made carelessly will also affect the aftermath. Tenant may leave before the deadline and house owner might not receive a single penny for deposit. That is why it is important to make sure that the documents are being translated, if required, accurately and precisely.
Poster: large or small published printed picture used as advertisement, promotion of products, or decoration. Usually, posters may be entirely textual, graphic, or both. They are intended to deliver different messages. Some posters are designed for financial purposes (selling, advertising goods), a few for social benefit (reminding people the danger of cigarettes, alcoholic drinks), while some are for political interest (propagandize, protest). No matter what types the posters are, all of them should be designed, made, and translated cautiously so that they can spread the expected messages.
