8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

My fiancé is finally here(yay!) and we are getting ready for AOS

 

I read that he needs his birth certificate to be translated. 

 

Ive searched google and found many website that say they are reliable and they are 100% USCIS compliant.

 

I am just checking if anyone here knows a reputable website for translating documents ? (Maybe specifically Ukrainian ?)

This is what I read on USCIS:

 

If you submit any documents (copies or original documents, if requested) in a foreign language, you must include a full English translation along with a certification from the translator verifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that they are competent to translate from the foreign language to English.

 

We are both proficient in Ukrainian but it says we need a certification from the translator... so I’m just confused

The "certification" is just a couple sentences signed by whoever doing the translation that states: "I'm fluent in both English and whatever language, I am competent to translate and the translation is complete and accurate" . Anyone can sign that, including you. Many people have done the translation themselves and had no problem. 

 

Having said that, for all of my stuff, I had always had a professional service do it. The reason for it is,  if something was wrong, I blame them, and not myself. But that's just me. 

 

The two services I used in the past was https://www.rev.com/ and https://translationpal.com/

 

Both were professional and I never had any problem with anything. All documents were accepted by USCIS and the State Dept. You do have to pay $25-$35 or something like that.

Awesome ! Thank you 😊 Did you have to send them the original documents ? Was the process long?

No, you scan or take picture and upload. The speed depends on how much you pay. I believe there is a 24 hour turn around, of course for a premium price.
