Translations?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got my husband's birth certificate and our marriage certificate translated to English by a public interpreter recognized by the US Embassy in Caracas. However, that was before they required that all documents be legalized (apostile sealed), and you can't legalize documents with a translation attached. I am fluent in Spanish and could do the translation myself but I'm not certified as a translator. Does anyone know if it's acceptable for me to do the translation myself or if I have to pay someone AGAIN to do the translation?

Is this for the interview? If so one generally only has to have documents translated if they are not in English or the country's native language.

From what I understand, you can do it yourself, but you just need to certify that you are fluent in both english and Spanish. I had it done by a professional here, so when I needed another one of the same papers they just made a duplicate and charged me $5.00. I felt better about them doing it rather than an interested party, so there were no questions as to the legitimatacy of the translation.

I could easily have translated my own, but thought it best to avoid giving UCIS anything to doubt. In the end, I did the translating, and a friend who is also bilingual made a couple of minor changes and then signed off on the certification of the translation.
