A friend of mine translated my birth certificate for the I485 form. Does the USCIS verify that my friend is certified to translate documents or that she is fluent in my language and English?
No USCIS does not do that. The translator simply attaches a document that essentially provides " I, state your name, certify that I am competent to translate from what language to English and English to what language. I have translated the document to the best of my ability." The sign the document, date it and provide contact information.
