Birth Certificate Translation Services

How does birth certificate translation work?

The process of translating a birth certificate is simple. You send your document to a translation agency, then a translator creates a new document in English. The language changes but the information stays the same.

If your birth certificate is in Spanish, for example, a translator who works from Spanish to English will translate your document. Once the translation is ready, you’ll get it back as a PDF file via email.

Where can I get my birth certificate translated?

Any reputable translation vendor, such as a translation agency or a freelance translator, can translate a birth certificate.

Hiring a translation agency is easier than working with a freelancer for this type of job. Agencies are usually more visible (they can be found online), they use set workflows, and they have already vetted their translators.

Freelance translators are capable of translating birth certificates, of course. It’s just that the buyer (you) has to spend more time finding good candidates and “interviewing” them.

How much does it cost?

Birth certificate translation services don’t cost much. This is because the average document is only a page or two in length.

RedLine charges $35 per page (one side), and we define a page as no more than 250 words. Standard page sizes apply (US Letter format, which measures 8.5″ x 11″, and A4 format).

For an exact quote, send us the birth certificate that you need to have translated.

How long will my translation take?

In general, you’ll have your translated birth certificate in 1–2 business days. (Allow for more time if you want us to mail you a hard copy of the translation.)

Certified Birth Certificate Translation

Do you offer certified birth certificate translation?

Yes. We offer both “regular” and certified birth certificate translation services.

The difference between the two is that a non-certified translation includes the target document only (the translation). A certified translation, though, includes a cover page from the agency or translator, which is the certification of translation quality.

Is there a certification of the translation?

Yes. When you ask for a certified translation, you’ll receive a cover sheet with your translation. That cover sheet will show the translator’s name, address, and signature as well as the date on which the work was completed.

Does this service cost extra?

No. We don’t charge extra for the certification from the translator.

The exception would be if you ask for notarized translation. In that case, we have to charge for the extra time that we spend obtaining the notary’s stamp and signature.

USCIS Birth Certificate Translation

Can you translate my birth certificate for USCIS?

Yes. In fact, that’s the reason that most people give when they ask us to translate their birth certificate.

USCIS requires that you submit a certified translation of your birth certificate. This means that the translator states that the translation is accurate and that he or she is qualified to translate from (for example) Spanish to English.

See the USCIC page on how to prepare your application. (The part about certified translations is about two thirds of the way down the page.)

Do you charge extra for USCIS translation?

No. The price is the same no matter the reason for your translation.

Do you do translation for immigration?

Yes. In fact, we translate many types of immigrant and non-immigrant documents. These include birth and death certificates, adoption papers, academic transcripts, marriage licenses and divorce certificates, and medical and police records, just to name a few.

Official Document Translation

Do you translate official documents?

Yes. In fact, we often translate official documents (called civil registry or vital statistics documents). These include birth certificates, marriage licenses, and death certificates. 

How much does this service cost?

We charge $35 per page for official document translation. As with birth certificate translation, this price is for one side of a sheet of paper with no more than 250 words on it. (In other words, longer documents cost more.)

Our Quality Guarantee

We offer a 100% money-back guarantee for USCIS translation. If for any reason your translation is rejected by USCIS, then let us know and we’ll refund your money.
