How to Translate a Birth Certificate in English

Most people have a birth certificate to document their birth. It is important to have one within the UK as you cannot get a driver’s license or a passport without it. Absolute Translations understand how vital it is to provide you with an accurate birth certificate translation in many situations. We can provide industry-leading translation services for you. We also return your documents quickly, with any authentication stamps you may need.

What Is a Birth Certificate?

Birth certificates document a birth of an individual. It is an official form that is issued shortly after the birth of a child and is used to authenticate identity and nationality. A birth certificate will contain a full name, a date of birth, the place of birth, the mother and father’s full names and the sex of the baby.

What Does a Birth Certificate Translation Entail?

Birth certificate translation is a complex process. It involves the original document, notarisation of the translation and legalisation by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Our integrated service includes a Notary and a legalised copy of your translation, so that your document is ready to present to authorities beyond your native country.

Why Do You Need It?

If you are moving to England and your birth certificate isn’t in English, you may require a translation to be able to apply for passports and ID’s. You will also need this type of translation if you are migrating from the UK to another country. Your birth certificate will need to be officially translated into the country’s official language. It is also required to be presented in the native language if you wish to be married abroad.
