Police Record Translation

My SO received her VN police record today and will turn it in few hours from now. The blue slip states all requested documents must be translated into English.

She can translate into English herself. My concern: Will they accept it? Or will it need to be notarized or stamped to be official? Anyone run into this before. This is the only thing I can think of that may block us getting our 'pink' today.

My wifes birth certificate was translated by a professional and had some type of official stamp. I would do it professionally. Don't risk another blue slip.

By action is one a noble.

This is directly from USCIS web site:

"Translations. 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".

Anyone fluent in both languages can do the translation. They simply write a statement saying they are competent to do so. That becomes the certification. It doesnt need to be notarized. Keep in mind notaries only verify signatures not content.

There is no need nor requirement to pay anyone to do this if she is competent or knows someone that is. Type translations into the search block here on V J to see examples.

Ok, she made a perfect translated version with tables and everything. Amazing. It will have to do since I need to sleep and she will go at my 1am. All the best. Looking forward to a middle of the night text message for good news. We are both wearing pink shirts today.

police cert does not have to be translated..its a VN document... if it was in a different language that would be a different story.. as long as it looks like the document in Lindal 's photo section you are fine... ours was not translated...and they never asked for a translation.. enough people working there that speak VN...

police cert does not need to be notarized either.. its an official VN government document..
