    Answered . You cannot certify it yourself. It is best to have someone not related to you do the translating and the certification that it is an accurate translation.

    Answered . Please see the below weblink for a "Certificate of Translation." As the attorney above stated, you may not translate your own documents. Get a friend or someone else to translate the document for you. Then, have the translator fill out, sign and attach the Certificate of Translation to the original document and the translation. Good luck!
