What our clients say...


According to the U.S. government requirements, English translation of a foreign language document (Russian or Ukrainian) must be accompanied by a legible photocopy of the original and a certification from the Language Service Provider (LSP) confirming the accuracy of translation and attesting the competence in both languages.

A summary or an extract of a document prepared by a translator is not acceptable.

Apostille validates a foreign document in the United States. It can be applied to a public record by designated officials in the originating country. Though some authorities in the U.S., e.g. USCIS, do not require it, it is recommended to get your document apostilled prior to bringing it into the United States. Be aware, that Apostille is applied to the original document, not its translation. Get your document apostilled in the originating country and translated in the United States.

English writing of the names must be consistent in all the paperwork.

A certified Russian translation is a written translation made by a translator familiar with the Russian and English languages. Certificate of Translation is attached to the certified translation.

Here is a quote from the Code of Federal Regulations:   8 CFR 103.2 (b)(3) (3)
USCIS Russian documents translation requirements

What is a notarized translation?

Notarized translation is a written translation executed by a translator whose authenticity is certified in the presence of a notary. Our translations are certified by the Civil Law Notaries of New York State, USA. Please note that translations certified by U.S. notaries are only valid in the United States, as well as in US consulates in other states, and at US military bases based in other countries.

Do I need notarized copy of translation?

It depends on requirements of the receiving office. If you have a short deadline or limited budget, and notary is not specifically required, pdf-file with certified copy of translation can be your choice as the quickest and cheapest alternative.

Does U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service require notarized copies of translations?

Another USCIS requirement is the complete translation of the document. All seals and stamps must be translated, even if completely meaningless, and entered in the birth certificate for entirely ridiculous reasons. Examples of such strange, redundant and superfluous information: a stamp of address registration (present in all birth certificates issued in Moscow), a stamp of the blood group, a stamp of the privatization of housing with a detailed description of the number of square meters and the quota of a particular area for the privatization of these meters, a stamp of the opening deposit in a savings bank and other vestiges of the Soviet era. Whatever it was, it's all part of the document to be translated.
