When needed, we take advice from our advisory board (advisory board includes experts in different subjects). It takes a lot of time to translate such a document.

As we discussed, it takes a lot of time to read and understand these documents. Therefore, due to the high time spent, the cost of their translation increases compared to normal documents. There is nothing more valuable in the world than 'time'. Therefore, the work which takes time to complete, its cost also increases. Therefore, if you have to translate such a document, then assume that both time and money will be required for a dead document as compared to a normal document.
Why is it called a dead document?
Documents composed by hand and typewriters from the old era of the court are called dead documents. Because common people cannot read and understand them. Their language, writing, has become old with time. Only those people who have experience are successful in adapting that language and writing to the present times. It is like a kind of surgical procedure which doctors do.
