I need to get a Birth Certificate officially translated into French . Can anyone please recommend some one ?
Was just going to say the same thing. I have been following it and it looks like next year some time. Worth the bluff given how much a translation appears to cost.
Stella/Jacqueline -- The latest state of play on the new EU rules on translations is on Useful Links/Translations as above. It's still going through the approval process but we're getting there and you may be able to use this fact to get out of providing a translation. Depends who you're dealing with.
I used David Pemberton of Assistance Franco-Anglaise. Everything was done via his website, email & post (including payment). He was very efficient and I received my translation 3 days later. Would recommend.
I too have heard that french laws are changing and that those extremely expensive "traducteurs assermentés" are no longer needed for translating birth or wedding certificates into french
