Birth Certificate translation

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

From what I've seen in other topics, some people do their own translations of their birth certificate or have a friend that is fluent in both languages translate and sign, some pay for an official translation from some translating company.

 

I'm going to pick the safest path which is having it translated by a translating company.


I would like to know if the translation of my birth certificate can be done in Brazil or it needs to be done in the US? Also, does it need to be notarized? Would a Brazilian notarization be accepted in the US? Do I need to apostille the birth certificate to be valid or anything like that?

 

Thanks in advance!!

It can be done anywhere by a qualified individual with an attached attestation.   Doesn't need to be notarized or apostilled


YMMV

You can do it in Brazil, should be less expensive.

 

visit your states “junta comercial” website, they usually have a list of certified translators. Pick one, contact them and have it done. Scan it, keep original to yourself and print as many copies as you need along the way
