What is USCIS Translation?

USCIS translation refers to the English language translations of foreign language documents that must be submitted along with certain immigration applications and petitions to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Specifically, if a document submitted to USCIS is not in English, the applicant or petitioner must provide a full English translation that meets the following USCIS requirements:

  • The translation must be a complete, accurate, and literal translation, without any omissions or editing of the foreign language document.
  • The translation must be certified by the translator in a signed statement affirming their competency to translate and certifying that the translation is complete and accurate.
  • The original foreign language document must be provided along with the certified English translation

Certified USCIS translation is required for USCIS to accept and approve applications and petitions requiring foreign documents. It’s a critical part of the immigration process.

Requirements for USCIS Certified Translation

For acceptance and approval, certified USCIS translations must meet specific requirements:

  • Performed by a professional translator fluent in English and your native language
  • The translator must provide a signed certificate of complete and accurate translation
  • The certificate includes the translator’s credentials, contact information, signature
  • USCIS may require the certificate to be notarized by a notary public

The translator must understand USCIS translation rules to ensure compliance.

Why USCIS Requires Certified Translation?

USCIS only accepts documents in English, with a few exceptions. Certified and notarized translations prove to USCIS that foreign documents contain true, accurate information.

It prevents misinterpretation, errors, and fraud. USCIS relies on certified translations to make high-stakes visa decisions, green cards, naturalization, and more.

Without a certified USCIS translation, your application could face the following issues.

  • Delays or rejection
  • Requests for additional evidence
  • Denial of your immigration petition

Don’t risk your application over a lack of certified translation.
