Certified Spanish into English Translation of Birth Certificates for USCIS


L.A. Translation, Inc. provides certified translation of birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates,  divorce certificates, college diploma, transcripts, background checks, and police clearances from Spanish to English and from English to Spanish.

To be considered a certified translation in the USA, you must present the following:

  • The source document (or copy) in the original language.
  • The translated document in the target language.
  • An affidavit signed by the translator and/or a representative of L.A. Translation, Inc., with his or her signature notarized by a Notary Public, attesting that the translator or Los Angeles Translation representative believes the target language text to be an accurate, complete translation of the original source document text.


As a general rule, foreign language documents used for immigration processing must be translated into English and be certified. If you are uncertain as to which foreign documents must have an English translation, please inquire at your nearest USCIS office for clarification.  You may not just translate a relevant part but translate the whole document.

Certificate of Accuracy

Every certified translation must include a certificate of accuracy, attesting that the English translation of a foreign document is an accurate translation. A person who is familiar with both languages must sign his or her name, stating that each English translation is an accurate translation of the foreign language document. The person signing the certificate may or may not be the person who did the actual translation. The person only needs to be fluent in both languages, must read both documents, and must certify that each English translation is accurate.
