Why Do You Need A Birth Certificate Translation?

A birth certificate translation must be accurately translated and accurately designed.  The appearance of the birth certificate translation must mirror the appearance of the original or source document that is being translated.  Unfortunately, birth certificates may differ in a number of country-specific ways.  Even in a country like the United States or Mexico, there could be many different styles of birth certificates.  Designing the translation and creating translations that look like originals is labor intensive and requires meticulous work.  At 24 Hour Translation, our translators invest the necessary effort to make your translations look like a mirror of the original.  Click on the links below to see some recent examples of our work.

Types of Birth Certificate Translations

There are different types of birth certificate translations.  Other translation services make the process of deciding which type you need complicated.  Also they charge premium prices and hide additional fees for services you really need.   The following describes the three basic types of certified translations:

Basic Certified Translation

The basic certified translation includes the translated document and an addition piece of paper called an affidavit of translation accuracy.  The affidavit of translation accuracy states that the translator has signed off, affirming that the translation is accurate, that no hidden or illegal intentions governed the translation, and that the translator has followed correct translation standards.  This statement is signed by the translator in ballpoint pen and is printed on the translation agency’s official stationary.

Legalized Translation or Notarized Translation

A notarized translation is a legal translation that is signed by the translator while a public notary observes.  Once the translator signs the affidavit of translation accuracy, the public notary records the signing and signs and stamps the translation with an official public notary stamp. 

Apostille Translation

Some countries may require that an apostille be provided with a certified and notarized translation.  Apostille service is provided by the secretary of state at the state level and federal level.  The apostille simply provides authentication that the public notary who stamped your documents is a legitimate public notary.
