Sworn translations of death certificates are very common if you need to certify the death of a person in another country.
You can request a sworn translation of either the extract, i.e. a summary, or the full certificate of death registration. We therefore recommend that you always ask the institution or body to which you have to submit the translated document which model is required.
On the other hand, you can apply for a negative death certificate, which certifies that the death of the citizen is not registered in the Civil Registry.
When is a sworn translation of a death certificate required?
There are a few cases in which a sworn translation of the death certificate is usually required, such as:
- Claiming an inheritance
- Claiming life insurance
- Claiming travel insurance
- Repatriating a body or cremated remains
These sworn translations must be translated by translators authorised by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to guarantee their veracity and legality before any official body.
These must include the stamp and signature of the sworn translator authorised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They are therefore legally responsible for the accuracy of the content of the translation in relation to the original document.
