The recent changes the government of Myanmar has introduced have led to both the relaxing of sanctions on the country and a renewed interest in tourism and business in the country. The government had been relaxing tourist entry requirement slowly over the last five years and the opportunities that many people see in the country has led to a increased investment in infrastructure to take advantage of the countries normalized relationship with the rest of the world.
When travelling, working or doing business in Myanmar the need for translated documents and properly filled out paperwork can seem problematic. It is the bureaucratic nature of the armed services controlled immigration and customs services that can take some time and effort to work through. There are many changes taking place and this can mean that paperwork takes more than a single visit to be properly processed.
There are many instances where you may require authorized translations for documents that you are presenting to any of the official institutions inside Myanmar. An authorized translation is a translation that is done by a Burmese translator that is a professional translator and has accreditation that they are fully conversant in both languages. This is because the translation has the same legal value as the source document and must fully and completely translate the source document. It is widely used in Myanmar for English to Burmese translations of official documents and certificates.
The need for authorized translations for Myanmar citizens that wish to travel, work or study overseas to show the required information is also common. Visa application may specify authorized Burmese English translations are required. Using a well respected service such as ours helps to make certain that your application is not held up while the translation is reviewed.
