best advice is from USCIS 

 

All documents submitted in support of an application or petition must include complete translation into English. In addition, there must be a certification from the translator indicating that the translation is complete and accurate and attesting to his or her competence as a translator. See8 CFR 103.2(b)(3) .

NONE.  Anyone who is fluent in both languages can translate.  Just make sure to include the statement as required by USCIS.

For USCIS, the above certification statement is perfectly fine.

Once you get to the embassy stage, they may have their own rules regarding translations - which may or may not require a professional/certified translation.

Hello, 

 

Thank you for answering my question. For the consulate in Brazil does not need translation if are in Portuguese. My question was about the first step because I do not want you to have delays for simple mistakes. Thanks ;D

I obtained "traducoes juramentadas" of all documents in Portuguese I submitted to USCIS (previous marriage certificate, divorce decrees, birth certificate). They are notarized and further down the road, when you are in the US, those might be requested by other institutions.

 

They are not cheap but at least you know they are excepted everywhere that asks you for an official translation.

in many countries this has to be done by a qualified certified translator

one who has a government issued stamp to qualify the translation

For the embassy/consulate, yes - some (many) require this.

For USCIS, the above certification statement is satisfactory.

Here's the translator I used to prepare documents for the I-130 filing for my husband.  She is native Brazilian, lives in the US now, does everything quickly via email (all you have to do is scan documents and she sends you the certified translation via email), is fast, professional, and very inexpensive.  I highly recommend her.  Good luck.
