My fiance has to have his military records translated, any suggestions where to have this done? I contacted the embassy and they said it needs to be professional but we are not sure if this can be done via website or if we have to give somewhere. Suggestions?

I wonder what they meant by "professional"?   Generally, translations ca be certified by anyone who is competent in both languages as long as the following statement is attached to each document:

I used these in the past, both accepted at USCIS and the NVC/Embassy

But what missileman said is correct, anyone can translate. They have to sign that statement.

If you use one of these services (which we also did), make sure the translation is correct afterwards.   I found our translator did a rather crappy job with my husband's certificate and even though I am very new to Dutch, even I could spot the mistakes.   I had to have the translator fix problems and re-certify.

Yes, agreed. Always proofread everything 3 times. You always are responsible for everything even someone else did it.

 

About the translation, I think for the most part, they do a pretty good job in my experiences. If it's a standard document (Birth certificates, marriage cert, ... ) they probably have all the forms for all the countries and just plug in the names, dates, ...
