I would strongly discourage you from doing that. The instructions EXPLICITLY prohibits that.Hi everybody,
If you know the language for instance on PP stamp you can self translate and self attest on an affidavit. Previously my friends have done that and they are citizens. Also I sent documents on June 4 ad per the last checklist. I know the checklist was updated just mid way last month so keeping fingers crossed any suggestions from people in the same boat??
Just because it worked for your friends doesn't mean it will work for you too. Do NOT take risks that are ABSOLUTELY UNECESSARY. You will probably spend a little bit of money if you get them professionally translated but that's better compared to your application getting delayed IMO.https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-0002-application-canadian-citizenship-under-subsection-5-1-adults-18-years-older.html
You must submit the following for any document that is not in English or French, unless otherwise stated on your document checklist:
Important information: Translations must not be done by the applicants themselves nor by an applicant’s parent, guardian, sibling, spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, grandparent, child, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew or first cousin.
- the English or French translation; and
- an affidavit from the person who completed the translation (if they’re not a certified translator); and
- a certified copy of the original document.
If the translation is not done by a certified translator (a member in good standing of a provincial or territorial association of translators and interpreters in Canada), you must submit an affidavit swearing to the accuracy of the translation and the language proficiency of the translator.
An affidavit is a document on which the translator has sworn, in the presence of a person authorized to administer oaths in the country where 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 in Canada don’t need to supply an affidavit.
The affidavit must be sworn in the presence of:
- a notary public
- a commissioner of oaths
- a commissioner of taking affidavits
