    Translation Services:

    We are happy to inform you that we (the Jewish Agency) have reached an agreement with the translation company, Hever Translations, regarding the translation of certificates and documents for new Olim.

    According to the agreement, “Hever Translations” will provide translations of certificates and documents at a special, uniform price for new Olim.

    The proposed translation prices will be subsidized and significantly lower than the costs to be done elsewhere.

    ₪80 for a translated certificate (until 250 words in one translation)

    ₪90 for a translated document in specific languages (Asian/African)

    All the translations shall be returned with the company’s signature that proves with an Israeli standard seal that the translation is correct.

    The common goal is to provide every new immigrant with a quality translation service at an excellent and subsidized price.

    For this purpose, detailed information about the service is available in French, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and English (see attached documents)

    For those interested in receiving the translation service, please contact:
