What can our Certified Translations be used for?
Our translations can be used for virtually all purposes and submitted to virtually all New Zealand authorities. They include the following uses:
We translate many documents to accompany a visa or residence application. Frequently this will be a birth certificate translation, but it can also be many other types of document.
These are translations to support an application for New Zealand citizenship to The Department of Internal Affairs.
For a Citizenship translation we need to receive your original document, as the Department will only accept translations of original documents. A selective certified translation will normally be accepted for most documents.
Translations for NZQA
These are documents to be submitted to New Zealand Qualifications Authority to assess overseas academic qualifications.
There are many other uses for our certified translations. These include:
- for Universities, schools and other educational institutes
- evidence for the Courts and legal matters
- job applications
- embassies and consulates
- general private use
Which documents do we translate?
Birth certificate translation
When we translate birth certificate documents it is usually so our clients can prove who they are, or their relationship to other family members.
We normally do a selective certified translation for birth certificates. We use a standard template and complete the relevant information from your original certificate. This is accepted by all New Zealand authorities for the translation of birth certificate documents. Of course we can always translate your document in full if you prefer.
Not all countries issue individual birth certificates. In this case, entries in a range of other documents can be translated instead. For example, several Asian countries use a family register, a household register can be issued in China. Gujarati and Marathi ration books also have all the information normally required.
