What are death certificate translation services?


This certificate is an official document issued by the foreign government that contains important information about the cause of death, location and time of death, and other personal information about the deceased. You will often need the death certificate to be translated in English for use in the United States. If a US citizen dies while in a foreign country, you get reach out to the US embassy in that country to obtain a death certificate.

Within the US, you can get a death certificate from the state or county where the death occurred or via the funeral home handling the funeral. Usually, 10 copies of a death certificate are enough for the different procedures that must be followed. The process for obtaining a death certificate can vary from state to state, but the cost is generally minor.

Having multiple copies of a death certificate is vital for various legal purposes. It will be required in order to arrange a funeral or cremation, as well as to access pension benefits, claim life insurance benefits, apply for probate to deal with the deceased’s estate, and even for getting re-married. Whatever your translation needs, for fast and accurate death certificate translations, you can rely on Espresso Translations.

When do I need a death certificate translated?


You may need to get a death certificate translated for a number of reasons. When a loved one dies overseas, you will likely need to get the death certificate translated into English. For any procedures performed in the United States after a death in a foreign country, you need to get the death certificate translated into English. The translated death certification may also be required for travel or medical insurance claims.

Sometimes, the deceased person’s assets may be located in different territories, which also calls for a translated death certificate. You should have this translation performed by a certified death certificate translator and ask for a certificate of translation stating that the translation is a true and accurate representation of the death certificate.

Other reasons for needing a translation of a death certificate might be visa, immigration or citizenship purposes. You will need to provide death certificates of relatives, along with related documents like birth certificates and marriage certificates, if you are applying for citizenship through descent.

Foreign inheritance or probate issues may also cause you to need a certified translation of a death certificate to settle the deceased’s estate. If a foreign relative has left something to you, you will need to submit death certificate translations for legal and tax purposes.

Death certificates are just one instance of the vital documents for which businesses may need translation and certification when submitting documents overseas and while handling international legal matters, court cases or immigration procedures for their employees.

Do translated death certificates need to be notarized?

Accuracy and authenticity are essential when translating important documents like death certificates. A notarized translation is commonly required to attest to the credibility of the work.

This notarization process adds to the translated document’s credibility and ensures that the translated death certificate is legally recognized and accepted when submitted to officials. If you need a notarized translation of a death certificate, you should first hire a certified translator who specializes in legal translations. After finishing the translation, the translator signs and certifies the accuracy of the translated document.

For this, the translator takes the translated document to a notary public. The notary verifies the translator’s identity and witnesses their signature, stamping it with an official seal, and the process is complete.

Your first step is to determine the requirements of the organization or country that will receive the translation.

The cost for translating a death certificate starts at $30 plus tax (VAT). Several factors influence the price, mainly the length of the document (per word or per page) and the specific foreign languages involved. The layout of the document may come into play, as will any DTP or typesetting services required.

An important element is the kinds of certification needed because some organizations demand certified, notarized or sworn translations.
