    Do I need to get my marriage certificate translated in the UK?

    If you intend to use your UK wedding certificate abroad, you may need it translated.

    Translations of UK marriage certificates may be requested in the cases listed below:

    • You are required to show it to a foreign government office
    • You are applying for a foreign visa or citizenship
    • You need to present it to a foreign court
    • You are applying for a job or further education in another country
    • You intend to buy a property abroad

    You also need to get your marriage document translated if you wish to obtain or renew a visa or passport or get a divorce. 

    It is important that your marriage certificate is professionally translated in order for the authorities to verify that the translation is accurate.

    Do I need to translate an international marriage certificate?

    You will need a professional translation company to translate your marriage certificate into English if you were living abroad when you got married or if you travelled from the UK to get married in a foreign country. 

    If you will be using your marriage certificate for procedures overseas, then you may require an official marriage certificate translation.

    Do I need to get my marriage certificate translated into English?

    If you need to provide a copy of your wedding certificate to a UK government body, academic institution or other such entity, you will need it to be translated into English. 

    In order to be considered valid in the UK, a translated wedding certificate must be completed by a qualified, professional translator and accompanied by a translation certification. 

    Overseas translation requirements will vary depending on the country.

    Do I need to translate my marriage certificate for a UK visa?

    If you are applying for a visa and your original wedding certificate is not written in English or Welsh, you will need to have it professionally translated. The translation must be certified in order for you to show official proof of marriage to the UK government visa office.

    Do I need a wedding certificate translation for a passport?

    To apply for or renew a passport, you may need a wedding certificate translation if the original is not written in English or Welsh. If you change your surname after marriage, you will need to produce your marriage certificate as evidence for the name change on your passport. 

    Additionally, you may be required to translate marriage certificates if you’re claiming eligibility for a British passport through descent, and your surname does not match that on your parents’ birth certificates.

    Do I need a certified translation of a marriage certificate for divorce?

    If you got married abroad and your marriage certificate is in a language other than English or Welsh, you will need to get a certified translation for divorce proceedings

    If your certificate was issued under the Vienna Convention 1976, then it will already have an English translation in the footer. If this is the case, you do not need a certified translation.

    To get a certified translation of your document, you must follow the rules established by the UK Ministry of Justice, which states that you must have your translated document certified by a notary public or authenticated by a statement of truth.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I translate my own marriage certificate?

    No, you cannot translate your own marriage certificate. The translation must be completed by an official, certified translator. This is a mandatory requirement for the marriage certificate to be accepted and your marriage recognised by foreign countries and other entities for official purposes. 

    Can a notary translate a marriage certificate?

    No, a notary public cannot translate a marriage certificate. A notary only serves to attest to the identity of the translator and not that the translation is accurate and reliable. An official translator must complete and certify the translation which can subsequently be notarised.

    How do I legalise a foreign marriage certificate in the UK?

    To legalise a foreign marriage certificate in the UK you need it to be apostilled. This means that checks have been made to verify that any signatures, stamps or seals match the records at the local government’s Legalisation Office. 
    At Espresso Translations, we offer translation services in over 200 languages. We provide certificate translations including marriage, birth certificates and death certificates for use around the globe. If you are looking for a high quality translation, contact us and get started today.
