My brother in law needs to get his Mexican birth certificate translated. They sent his federal skilled worker application back because he didn't and now he has to wait until July 1 because cook was capped. where can he get it translated? He is in California.
They should be able to to have a friend translate it and fill out an affidavit.
I just confirmed that is still the case in the guide:
"Translation of documents
Any document that is not in English or French must be accompanied by:
the English or French translation; and
an affidavit from the person who completed the translation; and
a certified copy of the original document.
Note: An affidavit is a document on which the translator has sworn, in the presence of a commissioner authorized to administer oaths in the country in which the translator is living, that the contents of their translation are a true translation and representation of the contents of the original document. Translators who are certified members in good standing of one of the provincial or territorial organizations of translators and interpreters of Canada do not need to supply an affidavit.
Important information. Translations by family members are not acceptable."http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/EG7TOC.asp
I wish him lucky; may chefs stay on the list for June!
