Translate Certificate of Ancestry

The certificate of ancestry was replaced in Germany in 2009 by the “Abschrift aus dem Geburtenregister” (transcript from the register of births). The transcript is a civil status certificate, which is a copy of the birth record.

If you are planning a longer stay abroad, live, work or study abroad and want to register with the relevant registry office in your country of choice, you will need a certified translation of your civil status certificate, which we will be happy to do for you into Spanish, Portuguese or English.

If you would like to have your certificate of ancestry translated, it is best to send us your birth certificate electronically as a PDF document and state the language combination you require as well as your preferred date.

You will also receive a quotation from us by e-mail, taking into account your preferred date. If you agree with our proposal, confirm our offer in writing by e-mail, stating your exact address and a telephone number for any queries. You will then receive an invoice from us for this translation service. After receipt of payment, we will send you the documents both electronically as a PDF file and by post. By arrangement, you are also welcome to collect and pay for the translation at our office.

Please note that if you use the certified translation abroad, you may need an apostille, over-certification or legalisation. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
