Certified Translations

If you're submitting a document issued in a foreign language as part of an application in the United States, then you will be asked to produce a certified translation.

We explain what this means, and how we can help you below.


Certified translation requirements

Foreign issued, non-English documents to be submitted as part of an application to the USCIS, other federal agencies or academic institutions require a Certified Translation. A certified translation is where the translator produces a word-for-word literal translation of the original document, and includes an accompanying signed statement, attesting that the translation is complete and accurate.

The specific guidance provided by the USCIS states:

If you submit any documents (copies or original documents, if requested) in a foreign language, you must include a full English translation along with a certification from the translator verifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that they are competent to translate from the foreign language to English.

The certification from the translator is usually in the form of a written statement included with the translated document and delivered to you as an electronic PDF file or shipped to you as a physical copy. You can then submit the translation along with the original as part of your visa or green card application.

Translayte is a translation agency with proven experience providing certified translations to our customers globally. You can receive your accurate translations from us on the same day, or within 24 hours, with 100% guaranteed acceptance within the US, and by USCIS. 


Who can certify a translation in the US?

In contrast to many other countries, there is no federal or state licensing or certification for translators. Thus, in the USA there is no such thing as a sworn/certified translator. The USCIS also does not impose any professional or academic requirements on who can produce a certified translation.

As a result, anyone who is sufficiently competent in both languages can translate a document into English, and sign an accompanying statement attesting that the translation is complete and accurate.

Our customers choose to use Translayte for their certified translations because of our proven experience and expertise with all types of documents, the speed and quality of our translations, and peace of mind – knowing that our certified translations will be fully accepted and reducing the risk that your application may be rejected or delayed.


Where certified translations are required 

Translayte can provide Certified Translations that are accepted by any of the following agencies and organisations in the US.

  • US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS)
  • Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
  • LLM Credential Assembly Service (CAS)

Our certified translations are also accepted by universities, banks, local authorities, courts and foreign embassies based in Ireland.
