Marriage Certificate Translation

As part of many official applications you will be asked to provide proof of your relationship with your partner. This is normally done with a marriage or civil partnership certificate.

If that certificate isn’t issued in the official language of the authority that you’re applying to, then you may be asked to provide an official or certified translation of your marriage or civil partnership certificate.

In countries all over the world, ‘official’ translations mean different things, so it is important that you understand the local translation requirements and work with an official translation service that’s able to guarantee that your translation will be accepted.


Why You Need a Marriage Certificate Translation

There’s a whole host of reasons why you may be asked to translate your marriage or civil partnership certificate. You’ll normally have to submit it as evidence for one of the following:


1Divorce applicationswhen you apply for a divorce, you’ll need to show evidence of your marriage in the first place.
2Marriage visa or spouse visaIf you’re moving to a country where your partner has full citizenship, then you will also be required to provide evidence of your relationship. This is a standard document for most family, marriage or spousal visa applications. 
3New marriage (both at home and abroad);In some European countries – such as in Northern Ireland – you could be asked to submit the marriage certificate from your previous marriage when registering for a new marriage. 
4Surname changeIf you’re also renewing official Government documentation (such as a passport or driving licence) with a new surname. You’ll need to show why it’s changed. Most of the time, the only way to do that will be with your marriage certificate.
5New passport applicationyou may also need to submit a marriage certificate when applying for a new passport or citizenship. This time though, it could be your parents’ marriage certificate.


Translation Requirements for Marriage Certificates

Marriage certificates, like any other supporting document, must be submitted in the language of the country your application takes place in. Not only does your document need to be translated, but it needs to be an official translation. The definition of an official translation varies from country to country.

Once you’ve been asked to translate your marriage certificate, you’ll first need to establish the local translation requirements. For instance, your marriage certificate translation could either be certified or a sworn translation. You may also require notarisation and / or legalisation (Apostille) depending on your specific use case.

In the United Kingdom, Ireland and United States, for an example, you will be required to produce a certified translation of your marriage certificate, which must contain:

  • confirmation from the translator that it is an accurate translation of the original document;
  • the date of the translation;
  • the translator’s full name and signature;
  • the translator’s contact details.

If you’re submitting your marriage certificate as part of a Visa or Residency application to specific embassies in these countries, you may also be required to produce a Notarised or Legalised Translation. These are produced in slightly different ways, and we provide additional information on our page about certified translations.

In some European countries like France, Germany, Italy and Spain, you may be asked to provide a ‘sworn translation’ of your marriage certificate instead of a certified translation. This applies to several other EU countries too, and some countries in South America (e.g. Brazil).

Sworn translators take an oath in court and must personally declare that the work they carry out is accurate and reliable to the best of their knowledge. Once they’ve translated your document, an official stamp with their details will deem the translation ‘sworn’ and acceptable for official use.

When having your marriage certificate translated by us, it is usually helpful to let us know the country you’re submitting the application to, so we can ensure the translation is certified correctly.
