And do i need to have it notarized after translation ?
The USCIS has provided specific information on the use of individuals to translate documents.
The specific information states:
Please submit certified translations for all foreign language documents. The translator must certify that s/he is competent to translate and that the translation is accurate.
The certification format should include the certifier's name, signature, address, and date of certification. A suggested format is:
Certification by Translator
I [typed name], certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and ________ languages, and that the above/attached document is an accurate translation of the document attached entitled ______________________________.
Date Typed Name
You do not need to have a professional translate it for you, and it does not need to be notarized. It just needs to contain a "certification" at the end of the document that states that the individual who translated it is proficient in both the English language and the language the birth certificate is in. You can find a sample certification statement to see what it looks like on the USCIS website. Good luck!
