Ciao ragazzi, qualcuno mi può dare delle dritte per tradurre dall'italiano verso l'inglese un certificato di nascita? E nessuno sa dove (negli stati uniti) si vadano a fare asseverare o tombrare questo tipo di traduzioni??
Grazie mille per l'aiuto

Professional-looking translation Mar 11, 2005

I know for a fact that the U.S. Immigration, although they ask for certified translations, will accept a properly formatted professional-looking translation. What they don't want is a handwritten translation done by some semi-literate uncle or by a well-meaning neighbor who knows a little English.

Just keep everything in the same place as on the original, match the size of fonts, etc. so that someone who doesn't know Italian can see, for example, that where in the translation it says "Date of birth", in the Italian original you find a date. Make sure to write dates as Month/Day/Year in U.S. English -- they're utterly incapable of understanding any other format.

Best,
Esther

Grazie Mar 11, 2005

Bene, Grazie mille.
Per la data avevo trovato una soluzione, cioè
quando è in italiano 12/06/2005
io traducevo 12/06/2005 (12th, june 2005)

secondo voi me la accettano?

It doesn't really look professional unless you write the dates as they're usually written in the target language.

in italiano 12/06/2005

in inglese 6/12/2005 (June 12, 2005)

Just as this looks misleading to you, the Italian way looks misleading to them.

Bye!
Esther
