Marriage Certificate Translation

A certified translation of your marriage certificate is often required for a variety of purposes, such as immigration, travel, obtaining a passport, legal, and academic purposes. We specialize in the process of translating a marriage certificate for official use. Our specialized translators have worked with marriage certificates issued all over the world and have the knowledge and expertise to handle your translation.

Certified translation vs. standard translation

In almost all cases, a marriage certificate translation must be a certified translation. This type of professionally prepared translation is different than a standard translation or an extract of a translation. Most countries (including U.S. immigration — USCIS) will require, at a minimum, that the translation be completed by a certified translator competent in both languages.

Typical marriage certificate translation requirements

Specific requirements vary between countries, however we have listed common requirements when obtaining a marriage certificate translation below.

  • Signature of the translator. A marriage certificate translation must contain the signature of the translator who is certifying the accuracy of the translation. Without a signature, the translation lacks a key component of certification.
  • A statement attesting to the accuracy of the translation. This statement can vary, but it typically must include an affidavit that the translator is competent to translate both languages and that the translation is both complete and accurate to the best of their abilities.
  • The translator must be a "disinterested party". Most countries, including the United States, do not permit self-translations (i.e. translating your own marriage certificate), translations by family members or friends, or other parties that are associated with the subject of the marriage certificate. In most cases, this means that neither party of the marriage certificate is permitted to perform the translation.
  • The translation must be typed and follow the same format. Keeping the same format ensures that the translation and source document can be viewed together for verification.

Marriage certificate translation for immigration

During the immigration process, government authorities will typically require that a marriage certificate be presented in order to extend immigration benefits. In the United States, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is responsible for reviewing immigration applications.

ImmiTranslate specializes in translations for immigration purposes. Our experience with these types of documents makes us an expert in preparing translations that will be submitted to USCIS.

Marriage certificate translation for legal proceedings

If you are undergoing legal proceedings in a country that is different from the country that issued your marriage certificate, it may be required to have the original certificate translated into an official language of the country where the proceedings are taking place.

Legal proceedings can include a divorce proceeding, property settlements, etc...

Other common marriage certificate translation use-cases

Proof of marriage is often required to extend certain spousal benefits, such as health insurance or social security. When a marriage certificate is not in the official language of the government administering benefits, a certified translation is required.

A translated marriage certificate is sometimes used as an official form of identification when other forms of ID are not available. Having the document translated can assist.

See a full list of supported languages
My marriage certificate is missing something. Can you add it?
No. Due to the nature of certified translations, we cannot add or alter any content from the source document.
The names on the marriage certificate is in a different alphabet. How will you translate it?
The process of translating text from one alphabet to another is called transliteration. A common inquiry is how a name will be transliterated. In this case, after you have placed your order, there is a section where you may add additional notes including the preferred spelling of any names present on the document, such as the bride's name or the groom's name.

If a preferred English spelling of a name is not provided, our translators make a phonetically accurate representation of the name in the translation.
Do translations for the US Department of State require notarization?
Yes! The US Department of State requires that all translations be certified and notarized.
Do translations for the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) require notarization?
No! The USCIS only requires that a translation be certified.
Can you translate a marriage certificate from English into another language?
Yes! We support translations of US and Canadian marriage certificates into another language if the language is on our list of supported languages.
Do you offer notarization of my translation?
Yes! For an additional fee, we can notarize your document translation. The notarization includes a signature, statement attesting to the accuracy of the translation, and a notary stamp.
Is this secure?
Yes! Your communications with ImmiTranslate are always encrypted. We handle your private documents with discretion. Only authorized personnel are able to view your documents.
