Translating Birth Certificate

January 12, 2015

Translating birth certificates is necessary for many purposes including:


  • Legal cases
  • Immigration applications
  • Driver’s license
  • Visa applications
  • Marriage license
  • Adoption paperwork


Birth certificates need to be translated with 100% accuracy.

A birth certificate is an official document issued to record a person’s birth and includes identifying information such as name, gender, date and time of birth, etc. Translating birth certificate’s correctly and accurately is very important.

Every birth certificate is different depending on the country or state it was issued in and the language.

A birth certificate translation must include all of the information of the original document and it should be in a similar layout as the original. Items such as stamps, seals and signatures should be included. Illegible information should be included as well. A small error in the translation can lead to it being rejected which means time lost and potentially an additional expense.

Once a birth certificate is translated, your translation provider must also issue a notarized certificate of accuracy that deems the translation as a true and accurate translation of the original document. The certificate will be signed by the translator or representative from the translation company and have the signature and seal of a notary public. The translation will not be accepted unless you have a notarized certificate of accuracy.
