Translating U.S. Birth Certificates for use in Spanish Speaking Countries

Many of those requesting a birth certificate translation (or other public document) for use in a Spanish speaking country do so for marriage purposes. Others are U.S. citizens moving to other countries or students who wish to study abroad..

Whatever the reason, the Accurate Translator, llc can assist you in translating your U.S. birth certificate or other document so it will be accepted by the requesting country. Please note that in addition to having the birth certificate translated, you may have to also obtain an Apostille Certificate which essentially legalizes and authenticates the birth certificate (or other public legal document) for use abroad. To determine if this is needed, you must inquire with the agency (embassy, consulate, civil registry, etc.) that is requesting the birth certificate (and its translation). Please see our page about Apostille Certificates for more information.

A little planning can save you a lot of grief. Make sure you have all the documents needed with their corresponding Apostille Certificates. Lastly, make sure all English language public documents are translated - not just the birth certificate. In addition to translating birth certificates, we also provide marriage certificate translations, police background check translations, affidavit of single status translations, divorce decree translations, and many others. It is highly recommended to research a good wedding planner who specializes in marriages for the destination you select as they will be able to advise you regarding all the necessary marriage documents required which can include application forms, travel permits, blood tests, etc. If either party has been married previously, additional documentation will be required such as either a divorce decree, death certificate and previous marriage certificates.

UPON YOUR RETURN from the marriage abroad, you will have a marriage certificate - but it will be in Spanish. To legalize it in the U.S., this too will eventually need to be translated. Be sure to contact us regarding this when you return.

This allows a side-by-side comparison to be performed which shows to the reader the translation was done competently, accurately, and completely.
