Top 3 Reasons to Use Marriage Certificate Translations

The season of proposals is upon us, and not far behind, is wedding season. This time around, many people will be escaping the country to get married; a luxury we haven’t had in the past couple of years due to COVID-19. This surge in people getting wed abroad is likely to bring an increase in people needing marriage certificate translations. With over 20 years of experience of providing individuals with translations, Absolute Translations know how important they can be. Not sure if you need them? This blog will take you through the top 3 reasons you should be using these professional services if you are planning an overseas wedding.

Getting Married Abroad

The first, and most obvious reason, is the actual marriage. When you get married in another country, it is vital you ensure that the marriage is legal in both your home country and your wedding country of choice. You will need to ensure the marriage documents are legalised and translated. After the big day, you will need to obtain multiple copies of the marriage certificates. The translators here at Absolute Translations work closely with the legal team to ensure your marriage documents are legalised and standing in your country of origin. Between them, our translators are fluent in over 200 languages including Japanese, Greek, and Spanish, so no matter where you are from or where you choose to get married, you can confidently trust our team to accurately translate your certificates.

Moving to Another Country

Perhaps you didn’t get married abroad but are considering moving to a different country. Marriage certificates will need to be presented when travelling and immigrating to prove that you and your partner are together. This document will need to be certified and translated to have any legal standing in your destination country.  Absolute Translations certified marriage certificate translations are legally recognised by embassies across the world and official UK bodies, like the Home Office.

Prove Your Identity

Marriage certificates are used as official proof of identify and marital status. You might need this for opening bank accounts, applying for a mortgage on a house, court cases, legally changing your name, visa applications, divorces and more. To ensure you are never caught out, Absolute Translations can translate your marriage certificate. This will allow you ease when showing why your current name may be different from your birth certificate.
