FOT 2826 Legal Translation - Ricardo Bardo-Portilla: Websites for Needed Types of Forms

This LibGuide contains resources for Ricardo Bardo-Portilla's Legal Translation classes at Padron Campus.

Websites for Needed Types of Forms

Needed types of forms include birth certificates, death certificates, and academic transcripts.

Realize that these forms will vary according to the state, jurisdiction and/or country. There is no standard form for all of these though there are many things that are standard on these forms, depending on what form it is (example from a birth certificate: place of birth, mother's name, father's name, etc.).
