A document written in a foreign language, what is it?

A document written in a language that you don’t understand is a foreign language document. As a result, a notary can perform this notarization. But with this performance, a notary public must ensure they communicate with the customer without an interpreter. If so, they may follow the steps listed above and complete their notarization.

As an example, speaking the English language, but the document is written in Spanish.

Where can I notarize foreign documents?

To notarize, you must comply with your state’s notary laws. Some states operate with remote online notarizations now, and some states’ laws still require a physical appearance. Lastly, you can notarize documents submitted to a different state and country, no matter the form.

Communication with the signer of the document in a foreign language:

Communication is important. If you cannot speak the same language, you must not use an interpreter. Interpreters, while translating, can lose information. Instead, the customer should refer to whom they can communicate further.

In conclusion,

To sum up, a notary cannot use an interpreter. Therefore, the signer should find someone who speaks the language. The interpreter cannot be a sibling, child, parent, friend, family friend, etc. Are you interested in becoming a notary or more training?
