Certified Translation of a Birth Certificate

The birth certificate is one of the most important civil status documents worldwide. It is usually issued to every person at birth in every country in the world to certify their place of birth and identity.

Over the course of your life you will be confronted with many events regarding the administration and bureaucracy of a country and in order to register these events you will have to present your birth certificate.

One of the most beautiful events in a person's life is probably finding the right partner. If you have fallen head over heels for somebody, you often want to reinforce your common path through marriage by stepping in front of the altar to solemnize your marriage. In order to have the whole thing registered with the state, regardless of faith and tradition, and to gain social status, the future life partners are required to present a birth certificate.

But what to do if you were born abroad and the birth certificate is in a foreign language? Here, the authorities require a “certified translation”, which can only be done by a court-approved translator.

You have now mastered this path and can call yourself a happily married couple. The honeymoon was great and the time afterwards was full of love and passion. When luck is in your favor, the happy couple grows into a small family. A baby is coming. Probably the most beautiful and miraculous event that can happen to a happy married couple. We say "Congratulations".

The baby is here and now has to be registered at the registry office. The birth certificates of the parents are also required here. If you have a foreign birth certificate, you must submit a certified translation.
