Marriage Certificate Translation

NAATI Marriage Certificate Translator

Do you have a marriage certificate in a language other than English (LOTE) that you need translated into English into Australia? Did you know that this can actually be quite a complicated process depending on your individual circumstances and where you need to submit the translated marriage certificate to?

In many cases, an Affidavit may need to accompany the translation. According to the Family Law Court’s page:

Rule 2.02(4) of the Family Law Rules 2004 requires:

4) a document mentioned in Table 2.2 is not in English, the person filing the document must file:

(a) a translation of the document in English; and
(b) an affidavit by the person who made the translation verifying the translation and setting out the person’s qualifications to make the translation.

So as you can see, you cannot simply translate the document yourself or have a friend do it for you. The NAATI accredited translation needs to accompany an affidavit in Australia before it can be submitted to the Family Court. We suggest that all clients seek their own legal advice as individual circumstances do vary. The information on this page does not constitute legal advice.

We can translate your marriage certificate into English for you and help to arrange the affidavit for you. Please note that we provide translation services Australia-wide and can arrange the entire process for you via email and post, without you needing to visit our office.

Simply go to our free translation quote form and upload your marriage certificate and a representative will be in touch with you to provide a free and no-obligation quote. If an affidavit is required for your individual circumstances (remember, you must seek independent legal advice about your circumstances), we can arrange this for you also for an additional fee.

Please note that confidentiality is adhered to on all requests and your documents will be treated as such. Our NAATI accredited translators are ready to assist with all your marriage certificate translation needs so please get in touch with us and we will be able to assist you with your questions and concerns.
