All foreign language documents and foreign language certificates must be accompanied by a professional, accurate and complete English language translation.* All written documents that are submitted together with an immigration application or petition to USCIS and immigration officials must include a complete translation into English. The translation must also include the translator’s certification and a certified translator must provide you with a Certificate of Accuracy or the translation will not be valid. It’s important to know the USCIS certified translation requirements or you risk jeopardizing your immigration case!

USCIS Certified Translations Services

Working with a professional translation provider ensures that the translation is accurate and it also ensures that your application or petition will not be sent back because you did not follow procedure. A professional translator should be certified to translate from one language to another and should be prepared to translate your immigration and USCIS documents. A certified translator will also provide you with a Notarized Certificate of Accuracy so that USCIS officials do not deny your request based on the translation regulations. Your translation provider will let you know the latest USCIS certified translation requirements.

USCIS Certified Translations Purposes

It is important to make sure you are always using an acceptable document for your immigration procedure; a summary of a document prepared by a translator is never acceptable and may cause your application or petition to be denied. A translator can only translate your document from one language to another and if she is a competent translator, she can prepare a Certified Certificate of Accuracy. A trusted translation provider will guide you on the USCIS certified translation requirements.
