Identity cards

Identity cards, or ID cards, are another type of identity document.  These identity cards may or may not be issued by the government and some might be unofficial, they may help in establishing one’s identity. These include government-issued identity cards, student identity cards, membership cards issued by professional associations, membership cards issued by private clubs and so on. Government issued identity cards and Student identity cards in particular are also at times used to provide a historical timeline as evidence for one’s claimed identity. In some cases, you will be required to have the translation of identity cards.

Languages in Motion, a Calgary-based certified translations and interpretations company, offers translation of identity cards from over 42 different languages into English and/or French. You can choose to come into our offices in downtown Calgary or if more convenient, you can scan and send your identity cards or documents by email. You can choose from three different types of services: Express (1-2 business days), Regular (3-4 business days) or Economy (5-9 business days) and you can either pick up the finished translation from our offices or have it sent to any address in Canada by FedEx or Canada Post.

Why Use Our Services

At Languages in Motion, we have passion for what we do and we believe in providing quality and high customer satisfaction at all times. Our company’s success has been built on having deep knowledge and experience in each industry that we serve.

Language translation and interpretation are highly specialized services that require proper training to obtain the professional quality expected in the industry. We are very much aware of the risks associated with using untrained translators and interpreters including the high probability of the message getting changed in the translation.  Click here to view a Case Study from the University of Minnesota showing that being bilingual isn’t enough.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we use very highly trained translators and interpreters and we work exclusively with Certified Translators (except in languages where there are no certified translators) and Professional Interpreters. ALL of our Certified Translators are certified by a provincial or national certifying body in Canada. This means that documents translated by LiM are accepted Canada-wide without the need for notarization, a Commissioner for Oaths, or an affidavit because they are certified translations done by Certified Translators.

WARNING: If you receive a translation without the translator’s name on it, a Translator’s Number, or if you see a Commissioner for Oaths has stamped the document, it was probably not done by a Certified Translator.

Save Time Online

One of the benefits of working with Languages in Motion is that you can scan and upload your identity card online. You can choose from three different types of secure delivery services:

  • Express Service (1-2 business days or 24-48 hours)
  • Regular Service (3-4 business days)
  • Economy (5-9 business days)

Delivery fees are included in the price so you can either have the document delivered to any address in Canada by FedEx or Canada Post or you can pick it up at our office.


What LiM needs from you:

Please provide an original, high definition scan or a certified true copy of the identity card. This ensures that the important details such as the person’s name, signature, date of birth, student number, date issued/validity, and other important identifying information can be clearly seen and the translation can proceed without any problems. If you choose to scan and send your identity card or document by email, please make sure that all information on the document is clearly visible. If the document is in a language with non-English Characters such as Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Japanese or Hindi, please include the correct English spelling of all names in the document(s).
