When do you need translation services for families?

Whenever you want to immigrate or attend school abroad! If you and your family are immigrating to another country, it is vitally important that you have your records properly certified and translated. Otherwise, you run the risk of delays or outright rejection.

Personal documents written in a language other than English won't be accepted by the U.S. government as they are. In order to ensure the smooth processing of your application, it is a good idea to contact a translation service company well in advance of your proposed immigration date.

This way, you'll have plenty of time to make sure your documents are in order—properly translated with the accompanying certifications. Please remember that your originals must be certified in accordance with USCIS specifications before we can accept them for translation.

At Metropolitan Translations, we are a one stop shop. Not only can we expertly translate your document, we’ll also certify our translation according to USCIS specifications, too. Handing your document off to us means worry-free services. And we’re happy to serve you!

What we translate

Birth certificates

We translate birth certificates from every country. Our office can provide notarized and certified translations. USCIS can be very critical of birth certificate translations, but our work is always professional, prompt and error-free.

Marriage certificates

Whether you have a standard marriage certificate formulated in English or a complicated contract in your local language, Metropolitan Translations can provide you with an accurate translation. We follow USCIS guidelines closely.

Academic records

Your degrees, diplomas, transcripts, and letters of recommendation will be handled with the utmost care. Our expert team of translators will help when becoming a candidate to become a permanent resident of the U.S. or enrolling in an American school.

Criminal records

Anyone immigrating to the U.S. must provide a criminal record from every country they've lived in from the age of 16. These must include all details of criminal proceedings or prosecutions. We are experts in translating these documents.

Drivers' licenses

When you immigrate to the United States, your previous driver’s license must be translated according to United States Department of State specifications. We’re intimately familiar with these guidelines, producing 100% accurate translations.


The first step in candidate verification is the passport translation. If it gets rejected, your whole application does. That’s why you need pinpoint accuracy when getting your passport translated—a service we can provide any day of the year.

Our translations are guaranteed to be accepted by USCIS or your money back.

Volume discounts

We recognize that people immigrating abroad may have a large quantity of documents to translate at one time. That's why we give volume discounts. The more you need translated, the cheaper your translations!

Built-in certifications

All of our translations of your immigration documents are automatically certified to USCIS specifications. As a one stop shop, Metropolitan Translations already includes certification fees in our translation rates. 

Mirror image formatting

The people who will be reading your translation will be holding it up next to the original. For this reason, we create mirror image translations. All tables and formatting are replicated for easy reading.
