getting birth certificate translated

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello visa journey friends,

Where, who and when should we get my fiance's birth certificate translated for the AOS?

Thanks! B-)

...I used these people: www.aaatranslation.com ...it was a referral from an immigration attorney here in St. Louis. It's convenient for me because I live in the area so I can also pick it up quickly. I get the impression that any professional translation service would work...they also notarize the document, which makes the translation seem very official.

YOu can have anyone or someone you know who is fluent in your native language and english do the translation and then have it notarized. I had my cousin translated mine and she had it notraized.

Any foreign language document must be accompanied by a full English translation that the translator has certified as complete and correct, and by the translator's certification that he or she is competent to translate the foreign language into English. If you choose to have a friend fluent in both languages to translate it for you, this is what needs to be included on the bottom of the page with the translation:

"Certification by Translator:

I ________ , certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and__________

languages, and that the above/attached document is an accurate translation of the

document attached entitled ________________ .

Signature

Date Typed Name

Address"

I had a friend translating it but I did not notarize it and we did not get an RFE.

Good luck!
