Why You Need Death Certificate Translation

Absolute Translations understand that death certificate translation and everything surrounding it can be a difficult process for you. When someone close to you passes away, it can be a stressful experience, especially if translations are involved. The formal aspect of death registration must be conducted respectfully, whether you’re dealing with personal death or professionally involved in end-of-life matters.

What Is a Death Certificate?

A death certificate is a legal document that is used as proof that someone is no longer living. These certificates are issued in every country after someone passes away. It will be issued by a medical practitioner and will be endorsed by a doctor. It must also be registered by the funeral director in order to hold a funeral. A death certificate contains information about the individual and how they died.

Why Do You Need a Death Certificate Translated?

If you need to legally prove the passing of someone, you will need a death certificate as it contains personal information about an individual. This can prove difficult if someone dies abroad as the death certificate will be issued by the country of death and may not be in your country’s official language. It will be needed for other legalities that occur after a person has died, such as insurance or their estate. Banks may require a translated version of the certificate to settle accounts. You may also need to present it to debt collectors in order to write off the deceased persons loans. As previously mentioned, you will need a translated certificate to arrange a funeral and cremation/burial proceedings.
