I'm curious... who has paid for translations?

Postby lc3708 » Sat Jun 14, 2008 6:07 pm

Because I got mine for free. I am dealing with the Boston Consulate, and was told to hold off on translations... which made me a bit nervous! But when I had my final appointment at the end of May, Mr. Corrao told me that he would be translating everything for me (God among men). Has anyone else had a similar experience? I was confused because everywhere else you need special, certified translators and such.

At least the San Francisco consulate requires you to be in pre-translated documents.

NYC requires translations now, but don't seem to require any form of certification.

(i paid gabriella for mine, i think it was $15/doc ?)

When I reviewed my documents with Sig. Corrao over a year ago I asked him about translations. He said to not worry about it. I didn't, and didn't get any translations. When submitting all of the papers, having them approved and getting my passport, I never had to get translations. The Consulate did it.

This maybe only applies in Boston and maybe when their load gets heavier they may change their policy.

You're probably right, Robert. In August, 2006, New York was not accepting applications either; they insist on them now.

I paid Gabriella for my translations. Her service is great and affordable ($15 per doc).

Paid translations

Hi,

I did pay for certified translations of my divorce decree and letter of no-contest. I translated my own marriage certificate and birth certificate. Any court documents needs a certified translation. You have to submit the english language document and the Italian document each with its own apostille.

I had my documents translated. I mailed them to the Boston Consulate (along with all of my other documents) to be reviewed by Sig. Corrao at his request, prior to coming into the consulate. This was two weeks ago. I hope to hear back this week. I will post back what he tells me to do with the translations. I have a distinct feeling that he will soon require translations again as he sounded busy on the phone. I have to wait two months for an appointment (and Boston usually does not require appointments).

LA requires a translator from the list. I had to pay $80 per for 5 docs.... not cheap.

I didn't however shop around from the guys on the list, i just picked someone close and went with them. didn't have to be someone close though since i emailed everything... i was sent back the docs in hard copy with a sealed stamp attesting to the translator on each doc.

The consulate didn't even check anything when they saw that. all the docs were accepted straight away.

Does LA rigidly require a translator from their list? I used Gabriella for my documents to San Francisco but my son and sister have to go through LA and I had my son's documents already translated. Yikes.

LA does not require a translator from their list, your documents do have to be translated when submitting your application in Los Angeles however. My documents were translated by someone off the Detroit consulates list of translators. Raffaella did not ask anything about who translated my documents. I had to pay more because I needed mine translated extremely quickly. I paid $150 for 7 documents, 4 long form and 3 short form.

Here is her e-mail. She seemed very responsive and pretty good time-wise, but try to give her enough time if you can. I did have an emergency document once and she was very good about getting it done quickly. She charges (as of December 2007), $15 per document, divorce decrees are charged per word. I don't remember what it was. I probably spent about $500 for all my translations but I had a big application with 4 people applying and a couple of divorces with decrees.
