Spanish term or phrase: oficialía
A Bolivian birth certificate this time...
here's the context:

"Certifico que en la OFICIALIA No. ####, Libro No. ####, Partida No. ####, Folio No. #####"

The Proz glosses say "The Clerk's Office", "The Bureau of Vital Records" and "Bureau". However, it seems to me that the context puts another angle on it. Boliviamanta kakkunaka, ayudawaylla!

This is it. IMHO. In South America these are mostly "oficinas del Registro Civil". "Oficialía" is the localized name for the same thing.

Julie, you asked about "Registrar's Office", at least in Canada English the correct term is "Vital Records Office" or Bureau and "Registrar's Office" is more commonly used for universities.

Asker: not "Registrar's Office"?

Asker: You know, I used the other answer in that translation. But, since then, I've been using something more like your answer,with the difference of using the word "statistics" instead of "records"! Thanks for all the research.
