Customers sometimes ask if it is possible to sign a document that is in a foreign language in front of the Notary Public. The general advice from a Public Notary is to never sign a document that you do not understand. Who knows if in the content of the document you are confessing your part in a murder you know nothing about?

I don’t have many skills in foreign languages but I do have a few people in my world who can speak some of the more common languages. If I want to get a general understanding of a foreign document I sometimes use Google Translate, Google Translate is not useful for understanding the detail. Google Translate is available on Apples App Store and Googles Play Store
