just read Catherines piece on applying for nationality, I am doing this, and have
just received my exam certificate, Taaadaaahhh!!
I am fairly sure that the French government need translated documents,
and that the birth death etc cant be originals, as they need a date of
less than three months old.
I think this means you have to apply to the UK for certified copies (
with today's date ), then send these to a translator, then send the
translations and the copies from hm gov to the French gov, before the 3
months has expired.
