What is death certificate translation?

A death certificate is a type of civil document that confirms an individual’s deceased status, including information about the time, place, and cause of death. When an individual passes away, the relevant authority will issue this type of document to their family.

Death certificate translation involves converting the text on the death certificate from the source language to the target one while preserving its meaning.

Death certificate translation service is often required in the following cases:

  1. ● When an individual passes away in a foreign country but has citizenship, assets, or family in a different country.
  2. ● When the consular legalization of the death certificate is needed for use abroad.
  3. ● Division of assets according to inheritance laws for families with relatives living abroad.
  4. ● When applying for a visa or handling immigration procedures related to the passing of a loved one.
  5. ● Dealing with procedures related to insurance policies.
  6. ● Settling assets or financial transactions of the deceased abroad.
  7. ● And many other reasons related to legal and administrative procedures.

Requirements for death certificate translation

A death certificate is an important legal document issued by the government. Therefore, translating a legal document like a death certificate requires adhering to these requirements:

  1. ● Absolute precision
