Certified Translation of Birth Certificate German-Spanish

When we immigrate to a foreign country, even if it is a European country like Germany, and we want to establish our life in that country, one of the documents that we almost always need to translate is the birth certificate. This is crucial for various procedures such as applying for residence (Aufenthaltstitel) and nationality (Einbürgerungszusicherung) in Germany or to get married, among other things.

Therefore, in case our birth certificate is not a multilingual certificate (not issued by all countries) and is not written in German, we must always translate it from Spanish to German.

The Birth Certificate

Surely, we have all held our own birth certificate in our hands at some point or have seen one up close.

A birth certificate is a legal document certifying the birth of a person. It is issued by the governmental entity responsible for civil registers, generally the Civil Registry or a similar office, in the country where the birth took place. This certificate is an official document and is required in different legal and administrative situations, such as applying for a passport, obtaining an official ID, enrolling in government programs, applying for social security, getting married, among others.

Birth certificates generally contain the following information:

  1. Full name of the person in question.
  2. Date of birth.
  3. Place of birth (city, state or province, country).
  4. Full names of the parents.
  5. Names of witnesses present during the registration of the birth (in some cases).

Certified Translation of Birth Certificate from Spanish to German

It is important to emphasize that the requirements and format of birth certificates may vary slightly from one country to another, as each country has its own laws and civil registration practices.

Therefore, the quote for a certified translation of a birth certificate into German varies depending on the document, its length, format, word count, etc.

In many cases, a quote is also made per page, ranging between 50.00 and 90.00 euros.

Where Can I Have My Birth Certificate Translated into German?

Living in Germany for four years has allowed me to create a network of collaborators with whom I work closely. I collaborate with native German colleagues who are also recognized in Germany as sworn translators.

How Do I Order the Translation of My Birth Certificate from Spanish to German?

If you want to translate your birth certificate, you can follow these steps:

  1. Send an email to info@paulajorge-traducciones.com with a scanned version of the document in .PDF format. If it is not possible to scan the document, you can send a photo as long as all the information on the document is clearly legible.
  2. I will prepare a quote as soon as possible.
  3. If you wish to proceed with the translation, we will issue an invoice to begin working on it.
  4. You will receive the translation by postal mail to the provided address. You can also specify an address to which you want the certificate to be sent directly within Germany.

How Long Will the Translation Take?

Although these are typically one or two-page documents that can be handled in one working day, we must consider that the translator may have a higher workload and cannot take on the assignment in such a short time. Therefore, it always depends on the timing and type of the document. Each quote will estimate the necessary time for the translation.

Of course, you can specify in your email if you need the translation by a certain date.

How Do I Request My Birth Certificate?

The procedure for obtaining the birth certificate varies depending on the country. Therefore, it is advisable to consult the corresponding governmental entity in the country where the birth certificate is needed to obtain precise information on how to request it and what specific data it will include.

Generally, the request for a birth certificate is made at the relevant civil registry office, and certain documents must be provided, and a fee paid to obtain it. Some countries also offer the option to request birth certificates online or through other electronic methods, which can expedite the process.

For example, in the case of Spain, you can request the birth certificate here.
