Translations Required during Immigration Process

With the new and exisiting immigration laws, there is an unprecedented opportunity to apply for residency and start down the path towards citizenship. Regardless HOW you qualify, during the application process, you will be required to submit certain public documents from your home country. If these documents were not issued by your home government in English, USCIS will require that these documents be translated by a translator who is certified profcient in English and the language of the home country. Documents commonly requested by immigration during this process include birth certificate translations and marriage certificate translations. Other documents may also include translations of any divorce decrees or certificates, police background checks, declarations of good health and even immunization records. In some instances, you may be required to submit translation of academic records such as transcripts and diploma translations.

Is this considered a Certified Translation?

YES. A certified translation consists of a translated document signed by the translator or an officer of the translation agency and notarized by a Notary Public. The part signed is a sworn statement attesting that the translation company believes the translation to be truthful, accurate, complete, and the translator who completed is qualified to translate and fluent in both the source and target document languages. This part of the document is called the "Certificate of Translation".

CAUTION!! Some translation agencies charge as much as $75 to make the translation "certified" IN ADDITION to the translation fees!
