When is a certified translation for citizenship required?

German citizenship is an important right that has many benefits, such as the right to freedom of movement within the European Union, the right to vote in political elections and the right to obtain a German passport. However, in order to apply for German citizenship, you must meet a number of requirements, including the submission of several documents. Therefore, in some cases it is required that these documents are translated by a sworn translator.

Which documents require a certified translation?

The following documents usually need a certified translation in order to apply for German citizenship:

  • Birth certificate
  • Marriage certificate
  • Divorce decree
  • Death certificate
  • Proof of residence in Germany
  • Proof of participation in an integration course
  • Proof of your German language skills

How do you obtain a certified translation?

A certified translation is a translation that has been made by a sworn translator and attested by a notary public. You need to send the original documents to a sworn translator in order to obtain a certified translation. The translator will then translate the documents and have the translation certified by a notary public.

Why is a certified translation necessary?

You require a certified translation to ensure that the translation is correct and authentic, since the authorities in Germany must confirm that the documents you are presenting are valid and legible. A certified translation confirms the authenticity.
