French to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / death certificate
French term or phrase:acte de décès
the document refers to a list that the corpse must be accompanied by to be repatriated
it asks for a certificat de deces and an acte de deces
dictionary seems to translate both as death certificate but obviously there must be a difference
i had a good look and it seems the certificat is the death certificate and is signed by a doctor
and the acte de deces is signed by the mairie or the local authorities
so i think it is just act of death
thanks so much
