Approved Utah Translator


It is the policy of the Utah Driver License Division to accept translations of documents that are printed in foreign languages under the following conditions:

  • The translator is certified by a company, school, religious organization, government agency, or court (Utah only) as having completed a translator program;
  • The translator is certified by the military and can provide certification document(s). Reviewed by the director or designee; and
  • The translator has filed a copy of a certificate with the division, which verifies the successful completion of a translator course, test, or program.

If you want to be on our approved translator list, fax the certificate and your contact information to 801.967.9868.  Your name will be put on the approved translator list on our website within one (1) week.

If you are looking for an approved translator to translate your foreign document, visit our valid translator list for a translator in your area who translates your language.

NOTE: A notary attached does not verify the authenticity of the translation or that the translator meets the qualifications of this policy by being adequately certified.  Also, now that certified translators complete translations, they no longer need to be notarized.  All translations need to be original, word-for-word translations.  NO extract translations will be accepted.

Fees charged for translation services may vary.  You may wish to check multiple providers to find one that fits your needs.  Please be aware neither the Department of Public Safety nor the Driver License Division takes responsibility for services rendered or fees charged.

If you have additional questions about becoming an approved Utah translator, please call 801.964.4451.
