Do you have a birth certificate from a foreign country that you need translated into English in Australia? If so, then we can help! We translate all languages! A large percentage of the population of Australia were born overseas and as such, in many cases their birth certificate is in a foreign language. When submitting documentation to the Australian Government (such as to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship) or to tertiary institutions such as Universities, there is a requirement for your birth certificate to be in English. 

The standard price for a birth certificate translation into English by a NAATI accredited translator is $69.00.

In cases where the original birth certificate is in a language other than English, a NAATI certified translation is required. NAATI, which stands for the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, is in charge of providing accreditation to translators in Australia. A birth certificate translation needs to be carried out in Australia by a translator who has NAATI accreditation.


A NAATI accredited translation can be sourced through a translation agency such as EthnoLink Language Services who will take care of the entire process for you. A scanned copy of your birth certificate is required to be sent via email. Once this is received, the translation will be conducted by a NAATI accredited translator from the language of the certificate into English. Once the translation is complete is posted to your supplied mailing address. The certified translation should include the translators NAATI stamp and signature, as well as a certifying statement at the end of the translation.

A birth certificate translation in Australia needs to be completed by a professional as any other translation will not be accepted by the various Government departments that you may need to submit the document to.
