What is an official translation?

Why do I need an official translation?

Many private and public organizations request official translations of foreign language documents because they want to make sure that the translator who executed the translation of important documents is a neutral third party. Sometimes the requirement is for quality assurance purposes. The organizations want to be sure that the translator who carried out the translation of the foreign language documents has the right qualifications and experience.

Official translation of Farsi divorce decrees

In Iran divorces are recorded by formal offices of divorce registration. Such offices issue divorce decrees in the Farsi language. Such documents contain important information such as the date of divorce, type of divorce, the registration number, and conditions of the divorce. They also list the information of the witnesses and the parties involved in the divorce process. Translation of a divorce certificate from Iran requires the expertise of a professional translator because such documents are filled with legal terminology. Therefore, the translator must know the exact meaning of each word and the exact equivalent in English.

Translation of Iranian marriage certificates

Translation of Farsi Birth Certificate for Immigration Application

Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 many Iranians have left the country and tried to settle in foreign countries such as the United States. They have applied for various types of visas including family-based and asylum-based visas. A birth certificate is a common kind of document that Iranians have submitted with their application. They have sought professional Persian translation from a company that offers translations services for US immigration. It is essential for Farsi-speaking immigrants to provide a certified translation of their birth certificate (shenasnameh) when USCIS requests it. Sometimes immigration officials ask applicants to bring a copy of their translation to the interview. Divorce decrees, marriage licenses, vaccination records, diplomas, and ID cards are other types of documents that applicants might need to get translated.

Applicants might experience difficulties along the way if they fail to deliver their foreign-language documents exactly the way the authorities require. They have specific rules regarding translations that they enforce. For example, they need a copy of the Farsi document to be attached to its certified translation. Professionals who specialize in US immigration do not usually suggest that Farsi-speakers who are proficient in English translate their own birth certificates or other documents. Instead, they recommend that they submit their Farsi-language documents to a company that offers Persian translation services. Assigning the task to a professional translator ensures accuracy and neutrality. In addition, professional translators provide their official certification, which you can submit with your application.

We have translated many documents for US immigration applications and cover all the major world languages including Persian. We can translate and certify documents so immigrants from Iran or other Farsi-speaking countries can simply submit them with their application.

Translation of Shenasnameh/Iranian Birth Certificate for U.S. Immigration

Iranians who are working on a visa application often ask us whether the small booklet they have is equivalent to a birth certificate. Provinces in Iran issue a shenasnameh or birth certificate that contains multiple pages. This small booklet looks slightly different from the birth certificates that are issued in the United States. The first page includes a summary of the certificate holder’s personal information such as place of birth and parent’s first names. A page similar to the image on the side contains some notes for the certificate holder.

The second page has the information of the certificate holder’s spouse and children. The next page has space for notes and death information. The office of vital records uses this space to record any changes to the certificate holder’s name. For instance, if the card holder changed his last name the office of vital record mentions when the change was made and under which law.

Iranians who are looking for certified translations of their birth certificate for USCIS should submit all the pages of their shenasnameh. Some of our clients who are unfamiliar with the requirements of the immigration department only submit the first page of their birth certificate. They assume that the other pages are not relevant to their application. We usually explain that USCIS does not accept summaries or extracts. USCIS expects a complete translation of all the pages of the booklet.

CACFTI has translated many documents including birth certificates, marriage licenses, and divorce decrees from Farsi to English. We can also translate criminal history background checks and vaccination cards from foreign languages into English.
