How to you get your Birth Certificate Translation
July 11, 2018
Birth certificate translation is often required for personal, academic and professional purposes.
Perhaps you dream of tying the knot in foreign or completing your higher education by involving yourself in a different culture.
Maybe you want to take your life in an entirely new way and go live and work in a foreign country. Whether you plan to immigrate, study abroad, or get married in another country, a proper birth certificate translation is an important step.
How is a Birth Certificate translated?
Having your birth certificate professionally translated before attempting to obtain any legal documents or benefits from another country will significantly reduce the number of potential problems you may experience. There are several steps you can take to receive the most thorough and accurate translation.
Always provide your professional translation company with spelling references for names and addresses if possible. Birth certificates written in languages that don’t employ the Roman alphabet may lead to some problems.
Birth certificates that contain a great deal of written information can be hard for a translator to read, which can result in misspellings and an incorrect translation.
If possible, provide the translation company with the version of your birth certificate that contains the highest volume of information. Some authorities issue both long and short versions of birth certificates, so make sure to translate the text that includes the following information:
- Your full name
- Place of birth
- DOB (month, day, year)
- The full names of your parents
- The birth dates of your parents
- The birthplaces of your parents
- The seal of the issuing authority
This will ensure that your translation is acceptable by other official bodies.
