TRANSLATION FOR ITALIAN CONSULATES

 

CONSULATE-CERTIFIED TRANSLATIONS
FOR USE IN ITALY and other consulates

 

To use Italian translations of foreign records in Italy you need to obtain a certificazione di conformità della traduzione at the Italian consulate having jurisdiction over your foreign document.

Sometimes this is also called 'translation legalization by the Consulate' or 'visto/timbro per traduzione conforme' or 'translation authentication'.

This service is offered in person by appointment or by mail, and the fee is €13 per page. 
Check your Consulate requirements.

I will prepare your translations to be certified at the relevant Consulate for use in Italy or in an Italian Consulate in a different country.

 

APOSTILLE

 

The Apostille makes document valid internationally and should be requested in the Country/State where the document was issued.

 

It may come as an extra sheet attached on top or on the back of the original record or as a stamp. For a comprehensive list of apostille-issuing authorities in the world: link.
