Translator recognised by the British Embassy

Hi all,

I have been living in Zurich for almost a year now and every now and then pop into English forum but have not posted my own question until now.

However I hope that someone can help me as I am needing to translate the birth certificate of my daughter (now three months old) so that I can get a British passport for her, however I do not know which translators are recognised by the embassy/passport agency.

Has anyone else been through this and know which firm I can use?
I am in a bit of a rush as the passport will take up to 6 weeks and I need to be in the UK in just under 8 weeks.
Once I have a company that is recognised (I tried calling the embassy but can not get a person, just an answer machine) then I can take get moving call them and take the document in person.
Many thanks for your help.

Re: Translator recognised by the British Embassy

Hi, when my daughter were born in Zurich (6 months ago) I got an international birth certificate from the issuing authorities which was accepted by the British Embassy in Paris, no problem. All entries are in multiple languages.

This was offered when we went to collect the birth certificate, I think for a small additional fee.

It should be possible to get an international birth certificate very quickly ... call up / make and appointment / queue up, etc etc
