Who can translate a birth certificate for USCIS into English?
USCIS stands for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and if you're looking to immigrate to the US, you go through them. However, this means you have to have your official documents like your birth certificate officially translated into English by a professional translator.
You are required to provide a photocopy of your birth certificate in its original language (for example German, Hindi, Greek, Italian) as well as a certified English translation. This translation has to be done by a professional with no personal connection to you.
The translation provider has to provide a USCIS compliant cover sheet and signature verifying that the translation is accurate. For this reason, the translator must be able to satisfy USCIS standards otherwise applications will be rejected. Using a service like Rapid Translate makes this much easier than it has ever been.
How much does it cost?
We charge $27.99/page, a page being considered up to 250 words, including numbers.
We also offer a few additional services, such as signed notaries for your documents, as well as the option to have your documents wet-ink signed, stamped and delivered via mail (Rushed mail options available).
How long does it take?
Documents between 1-3 pages are typically completed within 24 hours or less, 4-6 pages can be expected to be delivered within 48 hours. We also offer rapid priority service options for those who need their documents completed in a shorter time period.
Who accepts your translations?
Who doesn't? All Rapid Translate translations are certified to the highest standards of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, which means they're also acceptable for universities, courts, and other such institutions.
Who can certify a translated document?
A certified document translation must be prepared by someone with no personal or otherwise relationship to the owner of the document. All our documents include this confirmation by default, and we can also notarize the document if necessary. Notarization of a translation is an extra level of authentication regarding identity, and we do it fully online.
How do you translate a document officially?
When a document is translated officially it is certified fully accurate and fully complete by a professional translator. This often means a literal word-for-word translation of the document. Further, the document is officially translated when it contains a written statement of certification by the professional translation provider. A document can also be notarized, which confirms that the translator is who they say they are.
What is a certified translation?
If you're doing work with the government and you have foreign documents, you will likely need certified translations of them. These translations have strict requirements such as verification of the translation being complete & accurate, meaning it has no missing parts and is an honest English translation from the language it was in. We offer English translation from over 60+ languages.
Certified translations are used by the USCIS or other government bodies for immigration & visa purposes, driving license issuance, university acceptance, employment verification, and other such situations.
Certified translations require word-for-word translation. This is why using a professional translation service such as Rapid Translate is important. We're confident you're an honest person, but the US government might not be as trusting of you :) We guarantee completeness & accuracy of immigration documents, such as birth certificate.
Furthermore, certified translations are required to be completed by a qualified translator who is fluent in both the language they are translating from, and the one they are translating to. All translators are pre-vetted and go through rigorous testing for quality and accuracy.
All in all, certified translations carry legal weight, whereas non-official translations do not.
Take for example a scenario with a man named Peter. Peter is planning to immigrate to the United States from Munich in Germany. He's excited to be with his family there, and has already started making a list of the amazing national parks he wants to see. He'll be applying for an E3 visa.
But, his excitement quickly turned to anxiety as he started looking at all of the document requirements. He has a German birth certificate that he needs to translate into English. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and Department of State are very specific in what they want (but very confusing!)
Peter has decided that Rapid Translate is the best service for him because it’s fast, cheap, certified and fully online. Furthermore, Rapid Translate can notarize his document, unlike some other online translation services.
Peter's birth certificate includes his full name at birth, date & place of birth, full names of both his parents, the name of the issuing government body, the date of issuance, and a seal or other certification. He knows that when applying for immigration it's required to have your birth certificate in long form, rather than short form like some countries may offer.
While a photocopy might be acceptable while submitting his I-485, Peter knows a certified translation is also necessary of his German birth certificate.
So in just a few clicks he uploads his document. Within 24 hours, a professional translator translates it, certifies it, and sends it back to Peter for downloading. It's that simple!
Have fun in America, Peter.
