Mexican Birth Certificate Translated

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

ive read a bunch of threads and cant seem to find the answer. I know about the websites that translate the Birth certificates but instead of spending all that money id rather do it myself since im fluent in spanish and english.

My question is... im going to use excel to get a almost identical translation of birth certificate. But in doing so, id take up all the space on the front page. Can i put the Certification agreement stating im fluent on the back of the paper or does it have to be in the front. Read that it cant be on a separate paper.

Thanks

Hi Jose,

I've been reading your question and wondering why you want to translate your birth certificate. It needs to be in English OR in the official language of the country in which you are applying for a visa, which is Mexico right? I am assuming your birth certificate is in Spanish? And that is fine.

Also, you can't do the translation yourself, it needs to be done by an official translation bureau. Check the link below for info on this on the NVC website. Hope this helps.

Oh sorry,

I just read you timeline and see you are a K1 visa, so you are not at NVC really.

Doesn't the same thing apply to USCIS though? Either original language or English?

I was late and didnt put all info. Already did the K1, got married. Sent off the AOS and recieved RFE for not translating my wifes birth certificate from Mexico. Its easy to translate correctly but unsure if the "I certify" agreement can go on the back of same copy.

And i gotta update my profile...

hi, not sure if this helps or confuses you even more, lol, but here goes. with my friend's application, i translated her documents as i am fluent and i certified it and had my signature notarized. her documents were accepted with no issues. with my husbands documents, i had laa (latin american association) translate his birth certificate, i think for only 20.00 and it was also accepted with no problems at all, so i think whichever works best for you and if your translation wasnt accepted, just get it done through a company for a small fee and re-submit it again. good luck.
