With security tight around the world, it’s no wonder more and more countries are asking potential migrants to get their documents translated by a certified translation agency.
Despite the fact that many countries encourage immigrants, as they fill much needed skilled roles that are not available or are in short supply in the host country, they still require aspirant migrants to fill in information about themselves so that a clear picture of the applicant is portrayed. Most applicants who apply to work and live in another country apart from their own will be required an array of qualifications before they get anywhere near migrating. If the applicant comes from a country where all the documents are in a language that is different from their host country, it is necessary to get them translated into their destination country’s language.
It’s not just anyone who can accurately translate the documents needed for immigration purposes. There is a lot of specific language in a legal document such as a birth certificate which requires a translator from a certified translation agency. There are many suitable translators available. It’s just a question of going through testimonials and recommendations before finding the right one for the language pair needed. For some common languages like Spanish, German, French, Russian and Chinese there are many competent translators available to take on new clients and who are prepared to certify their translations on completion.
Some will have undertaken translation certification courses that give them the credentials to undertake a variety of different types of translations whether for legal, migration or business purposes. Such credentials should also be considered when picking the right certified translation agency. This is just another guarantee that the translation will be of a high standard and will pass any test set by the authority it will be used for.
Every legal document submitted to an authority like the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) needs to be accompanied by a signed certificate vouching that the translation is an accurate translation of the original document.
