The Department of Official Languages, being the official translator to the Government, performs translation tasks in the three languages - Sinhala, Tamil and English on behalf of the Government and Semi-Government institutions. The Department provides translation services to the Government institutions free of charge and as per the Public Administration Circular No: 2003/ (1), charges will be applied to semi-Government institutions.
You may receive our translation service only if no any translators are currently attached to your establishment. We are always ready to provide you with the best professional translation service.
For this purpose,
- Send the document/s for translation in pursuance of the relevant instructions via the link on the website and we will email you the translated text/s as soon as possible.
- If internet facility is not available, send the hard copy of the document for translation along with a covering letter addressed to the Commissioner of Official Languages.
How long will it take to get the job done?
Documents for translation are processed in the order they are received from various establishments. However, this order may change in case of urgency. The duration to accomplish a translation task may differ depending on the nature of the original document.
Further, we maintain a pool of translators and a web site - “www.bhashawa.lk” to provide you with other language facilities. On the website, services in Sinhala, Tamil and English languages are available through the qualified Language Facilitators who live in your area.
In addition to that, a pool of facilitators competent in several foreign languages is being developed.
The Department of Official Languages has made advances in the computer software which produces Sinhala and Tamil translations.
Further, as special tasks carried out by the division, we proudly celebrate ;
- World Mother Language Day
- International Translation Day
