My question concerns notarisation. I was not too sure which category to place this in.

Specifically, notarisation for the benefit of the Italian authorities.

The client has asked for translation childrens' birth certificates from English into Italian, for the purposes of obtaining travel documents for them for a forthcoming trip to Italy.

Having spoken to some Notary Publics in the UK, it seems the consensus is that, being official UK documents, translations cannot be notarised in the UK. If they need an apostille, that is apparently up to the client to speak to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office about in London.

However, I am wondering whether certified translation into Italian will be sufficient for the Italian authorities stop is it possible that notarisation will be required in Italy in order for the translations to be accepted by the authorities there?

I would get in touch with the Italian Embassy. In those cases, that's always what I've done and the Embassies I have contacted over the years have always been very helpful...

I would assume that the translation of any document into Italian , for official purposes, would have to be notarised by an Italian notary.

INCA-CGIL in London assists Italian and non-Italian citizens in the UK with many types of official documents. I have found them most helpful. I suggest you give them a call. They may be able to help you themselves, or point you in the right direction. Although they are based in London they assist people all over the UK. Needless to say they speak

Information from Consulate General? Aug 13, 2020

I have received an email from the Italian Consulate General in London which stated the following:

"the translation does not have to be notarized in italy, but it's fine for us to just have a correct translation of the two birth certificates together with a letter of certification as well as a stamp to verify that it is genuine.

Best regards,
Ufficio stato civile"

So I will take that as definitive.

HOWEVER I should add for the sake of future researchers that there is apparently contradictory information on their website:
