I keep searching, but I'm really running out of time to find the answer.

They sent me an RFE for Rey's birth certificate and translation. Where do I/does he go to get this translated? Where will it be faster? Who are the approved translators?

I'll keep searching but we need to send this off by Monday so I'm trying to get answers as fast as I can!!!

Now that is weird, why would they want that? Well, nevermind. Do you have his original bc with you? If not he has to get his original and go to a translator in São Paulo and then send it back to you. I don't know where it can be done in São Paulo, but I know there are certain places and it costs a lot of money. Sorry I can't help more.

Why would they ask that?Makes no sense he's not the petitioner he's the beneficiary, they should ask yours not his. :no:

I know, but I guess I've heard of it before. He has his birth certificate, and he's going to e-mail me a PDF of the thing or else a fax (because it can be a copy). It's in really bad shape because it's THE original. Are you sure a professional translator has to do it? And I can't just sign that form that says:

I typed name , 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 .

USCIS accepts translations "certified" by someone who states to be fluent in both languages.

Including me? The petitioner?

People, taking my BC for a translator down here will be such a pain in the ####### because I will have to pay for it and make the person sign that document that is on USCIS website.

On the website it doesn't say if you need to be registred, or have some kind of document, to prove you are a translator.

It just says "I blah blah blah am fluent in english blah blah blah sign here".

So, I think that is what they want.

Alex, did you ask this to an USCIS person?

If so, what did they say?

If not, why are you asking people here first?

Yep, including yourself. I translated a document in French for my own RFE and they accepted it just fine.

Don't worry, I'm going to do it (or actually, you are) like we talked about, but I couldn't as the USCIS guy because he didn't seem to know. He also sounded just like Cletus, the slack jawed yokel. I kid you not. I could not understand almost anything. It took four tries to figure out that the RFE was only for your BC.

I had mine translated but I didn't send it with the I-129F, it's for the AOS that I am doing it. Since you'll indeed need an official translation for the AOS why not do it now already?

Because we don't want to waste time doing that for the RFE...

I mean, it is a good idea to plan ahead and get an official one, but not for this case.

Alex is coming down next monday, so if we can send this before the weekend she doesn't need to worry about it while she's here.

It's weird, because they are probably not used to getting unofficial translations of birth certificates. But we will do what we can, and as soon as we're back in Sampa, we will get that certified translation (2 copies) just in case. How's that solution?

I mean, I will do this translation, but also we can get 2 copies of the certified one, just to be sure.

Just for clarification, the Translator doesn't need to sign any paper on the USCIS website... most of them have a rubber stamp, and just stamp at the top or bottom of the translated document. :thumbs:

Also, take this for what its worth, but when I called the USCIS about Translating documents back when I was preparing my I-129F Package, they told me (over the phone) that every document translated needed to be stamped, and or signed by the person translating it.

Hmmm and how long does that take?

PS What does a translation look like anyway? How should I format my translation of his BC for this RFE?
