One of the most common translation needs for those immigrating or matriculating abroad is birth certificate translation. New Jersey residents (or folks hoping to become NJ residents) may have some specific questions about how birth certificate translation works and how best to go about getting it. Here’s our advice as New Jersey’s translation experts.
Does my birth certificate translation need to be notarized?
In most cases, the answer to this is going to be yes. The State of New Jersey, for example, recommends that any vital records (birth, marriage, divorce, death etc.) in a foreign language presented to the state be accompanied by a notarized English translation. This notarized translation should have both the original (inked) signatures of the translator and the person who requested the translation.
How long does birth certificate translation take?
Because birth certificates are relatively short documents with similar information across different languages, the translation should not take long. Getting an accurate turn around time is easy with ABS Translation—simply give us a call and we’ll give you an idea of what to expect as far as timeline goes.
How much does birth certificate translation cost?
A single birth certificate translation (plus notarization) is generally on the smaller side, especially when it comes to multi-page large scale translations. However, every translation is different so it’s not possible to give a one-size-fits-all answer where cost is concerned. Thankfully, getting a quote takes no time at all at ABS—let us know what you need and we’ll provide an estimate.
Are your birth certificate translations accepted by USCIS?
Absolutely. The United States Customs and Immigrations Services notes that:
If you submit any documents (copies or original documents, if requested) in a foreign language, you must include a full English translation along with a certification from the translator verifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that they are competent to translate from the foreign language to English.
In our over 20 years in business, we’ve certified thousands of translations, including birth certificate translations, accepted by state, federal & international courts; USCIS; schools & universities; and more.
