Translating Documents

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is in the process of trying to get a drivers license here in the US. We have recently got her green card and her social security number. When we went to the court house to get the drivers license they told her that since Iran was part of the geneva convention that we could have her drivers license (iranian) translated and then just take the written test. Our problem is that we are in the middle of nowhere in Kentucky and there is no one who knows farsi. What we are trying to figure out is the best way to get her a drivers license without having to take a driving test. She is wanting to work as soon as possible and getting a permit is just going to slow things down.

Could my wife translate the document herself and send it to someone else to certify it? For example we were thinking she could send it to her aunt in australia and have her get it notorized there and send it back. seems like a lot of trouble but maybe we could fax it...i don't know....any help will do...thanks

Yes wife should be able to translate and have someone else conversant in foreign and English certify it.

I translated my own and I am pretty sure I didn't have anything certified....My Spanish wasn't perfect but it turned out fine.

For example: I translated on the birth certificate "muerte" literally to dead and "vivo" to alive....when a more accurate translation and politically correct would have been "living" and "deceased"....

I think they just want something readable....Not many Americans can read languages other than English so they are just happy seeing something in English, lol..
