Translation and other services with DocsBase

Often, the requesting foreign government agency will require a translation of your birth certificate and the apostille. They may even request that the translation be apostilled. DocsBase is equipped to handle all of these services under one roof. We have in-house translators for most common language pairs and trusted freelancers for the very unique combinations. In this way, we fulfill our motto of being able translate anything and everything. Getting an apostille for a translation of a birth certificate is different than getting one for the actual birth certificate. The translation must be certified and notarized. That notary must then be authenticated by the corresponding county clerk before being taken to the NY DOS for the apostille.

If you require consular legalization, we can also assist you. This is a slightly more complicated process, but one we are comfortable completing. When it comes to this process, every country is different. This applies when the country you are submitting documents to is not a signatory to The Hague Convention.

We encourage you to find out as much information as you can from the requesting agency, but if you are unsure as to what you require, ask us! Fill out a ‘get a quote form’, give us a call, or stop by our office today.
