FAQ: Do you have questions about name changes and their translation? You can find the most important answers here:

Do you have questions about a change of name translation for Germany?

  • + When is a name change possible in Germany?

    Especially in family law matters such as birth, marriage, divorce or adoption, you can have your surname changed without complications. Changing your first or last name for other reasons is only possible if there are valid reasons!

Do you have questions about a change of name translation in other countries?

  • + Can I translate my name change myself?

    There are subtle nuances and differentiations in every language which — even with a very good command of the foreign language — can hardly be adhered to and translated accurately as a layperson. In general, we therefore advise against translating documents yourself. With authorities, a (usually inaccurate) translation without certification is not legally valid anyway.

Do you have questions relating to the ordering/translation process of name changes?

  • + How long does it take to translate my name change?

    We complete our standard translations in a few working days. If you are in a rush, you can of course also use our express service. Then you will receive your translated document within 48 hours.

  • + What does the translation of a name change cost?

    lingoking translates all types of documents and, if requested, certifies the translation. The translation of your employment reference letter follows a standard page rate, as the length usually does not vary (we calculate up to 350 words per page on average). We offer you a certified translation of your name change starting from 52,90 euros, including postal delivery. For a small surcharge, you can also order additional certified copies and an additional digital version. You will receive your certified translation not only by post, but also digitally as a scan. In addition, our express service is also available to you if you need it very quickly

    Let the lingoking price calculator show you the exact costs for the translation of your name change now. The best thing is: With us you can also order the translation right away. At lingoking, we guarantee the highest quality, fast implementation and your complete satisfaction — all at an unbeatable price.

  • + What are the advantages of the lingoking translation service?

    Order your translation online easy and uncomplicated in just a few clicks. A copy of your employment reference letter (e.g. scan) is sufficient for the translation, we do not need the original.
