Important documents that you’ll require to get set up in the UAE, in support of your visa, job application or driving licence conversion, may require a ‘legal’ translation into Arabic. For the driving licence, you can get the translation done at the same police station where you apply for your driving license. Note that this may take up to a day or three, depending on the language that the document is in. An alternative location we used frequently, which proved to be professional, is the Elite Legal Translation Services. They have several branches in Abu Dhabi, but I always go to the one in Marina Mall, located within the Infinity Services office. Depending on how early in the day you turn up and what language your documents are in, these guys may offer same day service. Unfortunately German translations take several days – supposedly it’s a very rare language… Make sure you enquire about prices per page though – I’ve been quoted a price, which later on turned out to be the price per page, not for the entire document!
