USCIS Certified Translations from Babble-on San Francisco

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) requires all foreign documents (birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc.) to be translated into English. In addition, the translator must certify that the translation is accurate and that he or she is competent to translate into English. You cannot do the translation yourself, even if you are otherwise qualified. For this reason, you must hire a professional translator, who will include a name, signature and address for any questions that might arise.

Babble-on does professionally certified translations of birth certificates or other documents at no extra charge.


Frequently Asked Questions

San Francisco certified translator and notarized translation service

Do I need the translation notarized?

Many official institutions, including most universities, require translations to be notarized. However, the USCIS no longer requires notarized translations. (See their official rules here.) Of course, if are looking for a notarized translation, we can do that too.

Do you need to see an original or certified copy?

No. Since the USCIS no longer requires original documents—just legible copies of your birth certificate or other document—we can do the same. The fastest way to get started is to e-mail or fax us the documents.

How will I receive my certified translation?

However you like! Babble-on can send you an electronic copy (PDF) as soon as it's ready. For a notarized translation we can mail the document from our San Francisco Bay Area location to anywhere in the world (we charge only for destinations outside the U.S. or for overnight delivery).

How long does a certified translation take?

Send us your document for a free quote and time estimate. Generally a 1- or 2-page document takes just a couple of days, but it does depend on the language and how busy we are.

How will I pay for the certified translation?

First, we ask that you send us your document so that we can tell you the exact cost. We'll include an electronic invoice you can pay securely online with any major credit card or PayPal. Once we receive the payment, we'll get started and you'll have your certified translation for USCIS, usually in just a couple of days.

What languages do you offer for translation?

Any language. Any document. We routinely do Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. However, we are a tight network of translators and can accommodate virtually any request.

How do I know my certified translation will be done right?

That's a great question, and one you should ask any translator you hire. Take a look at our reviews around the Web!
