German Document Translation

Post by ashnght » Mon, 03 Apr 2017 8:15 pm

I'm trying to submit PR application for my German husband & realized we would need to translate his birth certificate to English and stamped by embassy or a Notary⁠⁠⁠⁠. I checked that German embassy don't stamp translated docs.
Any recommended Notary which can help to prepare this translation & Notary at a cheap price? I found quotations which cost $470 for this translation + Notary & this seem way too expensive!

You should try to get an "excerpt of his family book" (Auszug aus dem Familienbuch) in the international version from his standesamt at home in germany. Shouldn't cost more than 50 Euros.
It is in german/english/french.
The embassy here gives a stamp for a few dollars, but you need to check if that is enough or if you need a "Ueberbeglaubigung" or legalisation from germany to make it work here.
