Document and Apostille Translation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My Swiss marriage certificate is in 5 languages, including English, EXCEPT for my nationality (United States of America), my husband's residence (United Kingdom) and the apostille, which are all in Italian (Stati Uniti d'America and Regno Unito). Do I need to submit a separate translation for this document? And do I need to translate the apostille too?

 

If translations are needed, does the format of the translation need to be EXACTLY the same, or can we type it up in Word, with everything generally in the same location as the original?

 

Incidentally, I know that the marriage certificate didn't NEED to have an apostille, but that's what the civil status office did when they issued it (i.e. we didn't make the request or anything).

 

Thank you!

as long as the doc is in the spoken lang of the embassy or consulate (well except Arabic docs in cassablanca), you wont need a translation. it just makes the review processing easier. 

I'll be filing at the Phoenix lock box because I live in Portland, OR though 😞

Not correct when filing the petition.  The marriage certificate in this  case is already in English as one of the five languages, so no translation is needed.  The apostille won't hurt but is also not needed.

 

Only the documents that can wait until the NVC stage don't need translation.

 

Another exception is Chinese.  Official Chinese Notarial Office translation is needed for all Chinese documents submitted to USCIS or NVC.  Again, not applicable to THIS case.

A marriage certificate already in English, needs not translation.
