Certified Translation for Immigration New York

The USCIS mandates that all translations for immigration be certified according to the Code of Federal Regulations, 8 CFR 103.2(b)(3). This regulation specifies that any document in a foreign language provided to the USCIS must come with a complete English translation. The translator must certify that the translation is both complete and accurate, and they must attest to their proficiency in translating from the foreign language to English.

Impressive service overall. I needed a document professionally translated and I’m glad I chose this company to do the translation. The translation itself is accurate and precise and took about a day or so to the the final draft of the translation. The best part about it was submitting the documents online which is extremely convenient. Would definitely use them again if I need other documents translated.

What is a certified translation in New York?

A certified translation is a true and accurate rendition of the original source document but in a different language as stipulated. Beyond the translation, it comes with a certification confirming its accuracy. Such certified translations, especially those submitted to the USCIS, are vital for university admissions, court proceedings, and administrative processes at local, state, and federal levels in New York and beyond.

Certified Translation for Immigration New York

For a translation to be deemed complete, it must faithfully represent the source material. Translators aren’t allowed to arbitrarily modify or insert words; such actions could lead to misinterpretations. While this precision might be less evident in simpler documents like birth certificates, it becomes crucial in papers with detailed data and full names. Hence, certified translations, especially of such intricate documents, must be executed with utmost care.

The USCIS trusts that the certified translations they receive are true reflections of the original documents, without any undue omissions or insertions. Such accurate translations facilitate the seamless progression of applications.

A certified translation is accompanied by a certificate, attesting that it was carried out by a linguistic professional adept in both the original and target languages. Kings of Translation in New York relies on skilled human translators to meet the USCIS’s linguistic standards. Distinct from many competitors, we use AI tools minimally to avoid generic translations.

Moreover, Kings of Translation furnishes a certificate that vouches for the translation’s genuineness. We are also committed to offering unlimited revisions to ensure the translated piece mirrors the original document faithfully.

To further enhance the authentication procedure, Kings of Translation in New York includes certifications on company letterheads, complete with clear order numbers. Our contact details, along with the pertinent ATA number, are visible on every page.

The certification also states that the translator has no direct or familial ties with the owner of the original document. Additionally, Kings of Translation offers notarial services in New York, ensuring the provision of original documents bearing ink signatures when required.
