A Note About Handwritten or Filled Out by Hand Foreign Documents for Translation

Some people may think that just because their birth certificate, marriage license, etc... was filled out by hand that it might not be accepted. That is not true. It was not uncommon for many of these certificates to be filled out or even hand-written. Providing the original has some sort of stamp or seal from the issuing civil registry office, most of the time, it is easily accepted and can also be translated.

Many times however, some information on the certificate may be illegible to our translation staff. This is usually information with which the client is familiar such as the names of individuals, geographic locations, or even addresses. To help expedite your hand-written of filled out certificate translation, please send a typed transcription in its original Spanish of the document or document's portion that may be illegible.
