A translated document becomes certified when the translator attaches a signed declaration (Certification Statement) pledging:
Certified translations can be provided by professional translation companies or by individual translators certified by a recognized authority, such as a government agency or a professional translation association.
The process for obtaining a certified translation will depend on the specific requirements of the organization or agency that requires the translation. In general, you will need to provide the original document to be translated and any relevant information about the purpose of the translation. The translation service will then produce a translated copy of the document and provide a certificate of accuracy, which attests to the fact that the translation is a true and accurate representation of the original document.
Yes, there are different levels of certification for translations. The level of certification needed will depend on the specific purpose of the translation and the requirements of the organization or agency that requires it. Generally, there are three levels of certification: standard, notarized, and apostilled. A standard certificate is typically sufficient for most official purposes, while a notarized certification may be required for more sensitive or legal documents. An apostilled certification is the highest level of certification and is typically needed for documents that will be used internationally.
Please meet these requirements by the USCIS to avoid case dismissal.
