Escrow officers who assist buyers and sellers from foreign countries often need to have certain documents such as death certificates translated into English.

It has specific requirements that you need to meet in order to record a death, birth, or marriage. The translation of a document that goes to the county recorder’s office must be certified and notarized. While a document going to a court in California can be certified by a court-approved translator, a translated document presented to county recorder has to be certified and notarized.

In addition, the form indicates the description of the document. The document has to be signed before a notary and dated.
