Cases where you do NOT need a notarized translation

While many people believe that they need to have their documents for immigration applications translated and notarized, USCIS actually does not require the translation of foreign language documents to be notarized. For immigration purpose you only need a certified translation. In addition, courts in California do not require foreign language documents to be accompanied by a notarized translation. They only request a certified translation by a court approved translator.

Myths about Notarized Translations

-Despite popular belief that a notarized translation guarantees accuracy of translations, a notarized translation simply means that the translator or the translation company’s representative who signs the certification does so before a notary public. Consequently, the purpose of the acknowledgement form is probably just to verify the identity of the translator or translation firm’s agent. It does not suggest that the translation is correct or complete as notaries do not necessarily speak the source language. Even if the notaries speak the source language, they cannot modify the acknowledgement form to reflect that.

-Many people believe that they can get a notarized translation from notaries. Notaries are not necessarily bilinguals or possess translation skills. Even if they are professional translators, they probably cannot notarize their own translations. Likewise, translators are not necessarily notaries too. To get a notarized translation, you can contact a translation services company such as California Center for Translation & Interpretation.

I’m Ready! How Do I Begin?
