    What is a death certificate translation?

    A death certificate is an official document issued by the government. It details some important information about the deceased including cause, location and time of death, as well as some other personal information.

    You can obtain a copy of a death certificate in the UK from the General Register Office either via the internet, in person, or at the local Register Office where the death has been registered.

    All UK countries have different policies for obtaining a death certificate. For example, in Scotland, it is possible to get a hold of a death certificate the same way you would a Birth Certificate and a Marriage Certificate, via the National Records of Scotland. In Northern Ireland, a death certificate can be obtained online. As such, it is important to do thorough research before seeking out a death certificate.

    Should a death have occurred overseas, then the death will have been registered within the country that the death occurred. If this is the case, a death card can be obtained from the Overseas Registration Unit in England and translated into English with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    Despite often being a painful time, obtaining a death certificate is vital for various legal purposes. Not only is it required before being able to arrange a funeral or cremation, but it’s also used to access pension benefits, claiming life insurance, applying for probate to deal with the deceased’s estate, and even for getting re-married.

    When will I have to get a death certificate translated?

    There are many instances where you may have to get a death certificate translated. The main reason why people translate a death certificate is if a loved one has died overseas. When registering a death with the UK registry office, you will be asked to have the death certificate translated into English or Welsh. This will need to be done by a certified death certificate translator and be accompanied by a statement of truth. The translated death certification may also be required for travel or medical insurance claims.

    You might also need a death certificate for visa, immigration or citizenship purposes. If you are applying for citizenship through descent, you will be asked to provide death certificates of relatives, together with related documents such as birth certificates and marriage certificates.

    Another reason why you may need a certified translation of a death certificate is when handling foreign inheritance a probate issues. Perhaps you have a foreign relative who has left something to you, and you will need to submit death certificate translations for legal and tax purposes.

    Businesses may need translation and certification of vital documents when submitting documents overseas for international legal matters, court cases or immigration procedures for their employees.

    Before placing an order for the document issued, check the requirements of the requesting entity or country. Are certified documents sufficient? Are they officially certified, or do they require notarized translations? Perhaps an apostille is needed? If so, obtain this first before proceeding with the translation.

    Who can translate a death certificate?

    For death certificate translations, you should choose a language services provider who can assure accurate and quality translations for official purposes while maintaining confidentiality. An agency that is ISO-certified or a member of the Association of Translation Companies or the Institute of Translators and Interpreters can offer certified translation services that are accepted internationally.

    Espresso Translations guarantees a certified translator specialised in legal document translation services that has proven experience translating in the specific language pair and in the translation of documents of deceased persons.

    How much does it cost to translate a death certificate?

    It costs from £30 + VAT to translate a death certificate. The price varies depending on several factors, mostly the number of words and the foreign languages you are translating to and from. Other factors include the layout of the document and whether any DTP or typesetting services will be required.

    Another important element is the level of certification that you need, whether that be certified, notarised or sworn translation. Some countries will levy duties and taxes on the certifications signed or issued by the competent authority.

    The final element to consider is the turnaround time. We offer a standard and express service, so if you need your translations done in less than 48 hours, there will be an additional charge.
