What is a USCIS Certified Translation and how to get it done?

USCIS stands for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. To apply for immigration and permanent residence USCIS asks for documents like Birth Certificate, Death Certificate, Academic Documents, Adoption Deeds, Affidavit, and Transcripts as per the requirements. The documents must be in the English language, if they are in the non-English language then you are asked to get them translated into English.

The Translation must be certified. A Certified translation is a translation accompanied by a signed statement of a translator that states the translation is complete and accurate to the best of the translator’s knowledge. It states the translator has a good knowledge of the source and the target languages.



A document can be translated by a family member, relative, or friend but he/she must certify that they are competent in the source and the target language; ultimately, this is up to the discretion of a USCIS officer. However, the best way to not get in trouble is to find a translation agency that can translate and certify the document without creating hassle.

USCIS has designed a format for the translation. When submitting the translated documents, you are required to submit the certificate of translation. The certificate must include that the person who translated the document is competent in the source and the target languages; it should include the date of translation, name, and signature of the certifier.

 If you are the one who needed certified translation for any of your documents then you are at the right place. As per the requirement, we follow USCIS guidelines for the translation of any document. Just click to Order a translation and place your order in the comfort of your home.
