Fast, Accurate, and Affordable Death Certificate Translation Services

In this article, we are going to cover frequently asked questions about death certificate translation services. The most common reasons why people are looking to translate a death certificate are to settle a deceased’s estate or claim insurance benefits if a person passed away abroad or if these matters have to be settled in a foreign country. Another common reason why people may need to translate a death certificate is immigration to the United States. According to the USCIS requirements, all foreign documents that you intend to present to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services must be translated into English, and such translation also has to be certified.

A death certificate is a very important vital record, and translation of such document is way more complex than it may seem. That document records the location and date of a person’s death, age at death, and the cause of death. If you intend to use a death certificate translation for immigration purposes and submit it to the USCIS, or to any other official organization, you will need an assistance of a knowledgeable, professional, and certified linguist who is an expert in providing death certificate translation services.

What is a Certified Death Certificate Translation?

First, let’s cover what is considered a certified translation. A certified translation means that a person who has translated your document signed a special statement in front of a notary public, a so-called Affidavit of Accuracy, declaring that the translator is capable of translating from a source language into a target language, that the translation has been done accurately, and is a true representation of the original text.

Our company proudly provides certified death certificate translation services since 2014. When you place an order with our translation agency, you will receive a perfectly formatted and accurate translation with our official letterhead, Affidavit of Accuracy, and notarization. We guarantee that any translation done by our company will be accepted by the USCIS and all other Federal or private institutions.

Speaking of the format, we always reproduce the original format of the source document where all stamps, seals, signatures, and dashes are indicated, which is also very important.

It is worth noting that the correct name spelling is crucial because a difference in one letter makes it a completely different name, and all of the dates and numbers should be accurately indicated in the translation in order to avoid possible serious complications. 

Sometimes people ask whether they can translate a death certificate on their own or not. The simple answer is no. It is enough to say that even if you know English well, you cannot translate such documents for official use because you are considered as a party of interest. You can read more about it here.
