The certificate of translation is an official statement in which a translator confirms that he has accurately translated the document into the target language. A complete translation which the translator has certified as complete and correct and declared that he is qualified to translate the source language into the target language must accompany any foreign language document being submitted to USCIS. This article contains a certificate of translation sample in case you need one.

While a translation by a certified translator or a certified translation service holds more weight, the translation may also be completed by anyone who is skilled in both the source and the target language, however, there is no guarantee such a translation will be accepted by USCIS.

USCIS will always ask for a certified translation which means the source text, the translated text and a report with signature and stamp of the translator or the translation company.

Signed Report

The Signed Report

The certification or certificate of translation or the certificate of accuracy is a signed report by the translator or translation agency, declaring that the translated text is an accurate representation of the original text.

For instance, while immigrating to the US, the documents requested by the USCIS should be in English or be translated into English (if in any other language), and the translation requires to be certified. The certified translation has to satisfy the specification set by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services which includes a formatted cover-sheet with a stamp and signature of the translator or translation agency.

Original Copy

Certifying is essentially attesting that the translation is an accurate copy of the original document, to the best of the signer’s knowledge and understanding, via a statement and signature to that outcome.

Often, a sentence declaring the translator’s competency to translate the languages involved is also part of this statement. Contact information for the translator or agency is also commonly included. We call the document that certifies the translations a certificate of translation.

  • What is a translation certificate?

    A translation certificate is a signed statement of the linguistic expert that comes with a certified translation. It is a proof of accuracy. It also states that the document is complete and free of errors. By adding their signature on the document, the translator proves that they are confident of their work.

  • How do you certify a translation document?

    The certification of a translation document is the process in which a linguistic expert writes on a piece of paper that their work is complete and free of errors and then add their signature at the bottom. Translators hand over their signed statement to the client along with the translation.

  • Do you need a license to be a translator?

    The rules of becoming a translator are different everywhere. In some countries, people need a license to become a translator, in others, they must be a member of an association. However, in the US, anyone can be a translator as long as they have the right qualification. But translators can get certified if they want.

  • Who can translate documents?

    Only a qualified linguistic expert who has plenty of experience in their field can translate documents. They must not only be the native speaker of the language they are translating into, but also be familiar with the cultural values of the target audience. If they are qualified then they will be able to translate documents accurately.

How do I get a certificate of translation sample?

When you ask for a certificate of translation, you have to know the answer to some of the questions that a translation agency or translator will ask you. Most of the time, the certified translation is needed for immigration purposes.

What country do you want the certification for?

For instance, if you want your document translated into English, are you presenting this to someone in the US or the US embassy or USCIS? Then yes, you need to show to each official body in the US your official documents in English. And for that, the US regulations ask for a certified translation.

What is a  translation certificate for?

Is it to record you as a citizen or a business? Do you want it for legal cases? Every document that is not in English can not be sent to official institutes in the US. They all need to be in the English Language. For that, you need to have a certificate signed by a translator or a translation agency declaring that the translation correctly represents the foreign language document. They need to be stamped and signed.

For what kind of documents do I need to have a certificate for?

It can be anything from a marriage certificate or birth certificate to a complicated legal paper.

How do you certify a translation document?

A translation agency or a translator will translate the document, fill in the certificate and sign and stamp each page of the source document (the document you gave for translation), and the translated document.

No matter which document you look at, you will realize that its importance lies in the signature or stamp on it. The issuing body becomes the difference between a real and fake paper. Even currency bills are signed by different officials in different countries. In the US, it is the treasurer whose signature is on every bill. Although this thing can also be replicated but often it is the decisive factor on a real record as it can’t be faked perfectly. You can go into any field and work anywhere but the importance of authentication of papers will never diminish.

Even your degrees are nothing without the stamp of your university or college. The references you want to present at a new job location will also have to be stamped. When it comes to the world of translation, not all types require a form of certification. But no certified interpretation is complete without the certificate of translation. The certificate proves the validity of the translation and that is why it is often required in official settings where someone cannot be taken on their word and will need to be backed by the signature of a professional. Make sure to get the certificate from the agency when they do translation for you.
