Translation, certification and legalization of documents in Bulgaria

About us: we are a language translation agency in Bulgaria. Our profile includes translations of text into Bulgarian, from most common foreign languages. The main priorities for us are the clarity of work and the convenience for the client.

For your convenience, we have a selection of options:

1) In the current epidemiological situation, for your convenience and safety, we offer the service of sending and receiving documents through a courier, post office or postomat. When sending through a courier, you send and receive documents at a convenient time for you and in a convenient place. Sending through the post office may be convenient for you if you are in another city. Sending through a postomat (an automated point for receiving and issuing correspondence) takes place without the participation of third parties, today some Econt offices offer such services and they are available 24 hours a day.  

2) If you have a tight deadline, for example, you are going to Bulgaria to submit documents to the Migration Department and want to do everything as quickly as possible, then you can send us your scanned documents by e-mail in advance and the translation will be ready by your arrival in Bulgaria.

We are always open to wishes and suggestions. We will be glad to fruitful work with you and your documents.

I have been using the agency's services (translations Russian, Bulgarian, Turkish, English) for more than 2 years.
Without remarks or mistakes. Deadlines are met. If necessary, they provide interaction with a notary.

Dmitry Kresnov

The best translation and legalization agency on the coast from St. Vlas to Nessebar. I ordered a translation of a school certificate to obtain a Bulgarian driver's license. Translation and certification by a notary was done very quickly and efficiently. 
The Ministry of Education and Science did not have any questions about the documents, they accepted everything and now I have a Bulgarian driving license. Thank you for the efficiency, quality and individual approach!


The cost depends on several factors:

  • Translation languages
  • The nature of the text (e.g. personal documents or scientific and technical documentation)
  • Timing

You can independently familiarize yourself with the general price list in the section "our prices", or send a photo of your document to one of the available messengers (WhatsApp, Telegram, etc.) and get an exact answer regarding the cost.

The Convention establishes a special sign (stamp) affixed to official documents created in one state and subject to transfer to another state, replacing the consular legalization procedure - an apostille.

3) For documents provided from a country NOT SIGNED "The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization of Foreign Official Documents of October 5, 1961" and not having a bilateral agreement with Bulgaria, there is a generally accepted practice of legalizing documents:

  • The document must be certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country that issues this document;
  • Further, the seal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must be certified by the Bulgarian diplomatic or consular mission in this country. Or, the seal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of such a country can be certified in Bulgaria, in the foreign diplomatic or consular mission of the country of origin of the document, and after that, additionally certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria.
