French to English translation of birth certificate

Hi Peeps,

I'm not even in Switzerland yet (ETA end of this month) and have to deal with the paperwork for my Australian visa. I'm being asked to give a copy of my birth certificate (that will be soon delivered to my Swiss address from my place of birth in France). It has to be translated in English.

Is there a translator on this site that could translate my French birth certificate in English?
Alternatively, if you know somebody off the site, I'm interested.

The guidelines state:
Documents in languages other than English should be accompanied by an English translation. If the applicant is onshore, the translation should be undertaken by a translator accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Failure to do so may significantly affect the processing of your application. Translations provided by non-accredited translators overseas should be endorsed by the translator with their full name, address, telephone number, and details of their qualifications and experience in the language being translated.

Many thanks in advance for your help

Oh, I forgot:
I don't mean to be cheeky but I really need to keep it as cheap as possible (before you advise world-class translators who deal with big corporations)

The cheapest was to translate a handwritten French birth certificate into English is to order a new copy of your birth certificate in the international format.

I unfortunately didn't get this option when I ordered it online, but thanks for the suggestion.

Re: French to English translation of birth certificate

Just in case someone ever needs something similar done, I used the directory of translators from the NAATI website and emailed a few of them:
http://mail.naati.com.au/naati/pdsearch/pdsearch.aspx
I ended up using the services of "Aussie in Sydney" from the forum australia-australie.com as he was highly recommended there (although not located in Switzerland but in Australia - thanks the Internet)
