Q: How and where can I get translated documents notarized?

I'm helping my Chinese friend prepare a visa application to Ireland and not quite sure how to go about the translated documents. I've personally translated his housing contract into English, but now I have to get it notarized? Where can I get this done in Beijing and how much does it cost? If anyone has any advice in general or experience helping Chinese with their visa app, any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Apparantly a number of consulates in Beijing offer these services. I've heard that the US consulate does but you should call and check first.

You could also try the Beijing Notary Public Office:
206 Jixiangli Chaowaidajie, Chaoyang District. Tel: 6553 8989; 6553 8988
Open: 8:30-11:30; 13:30-16:30

Some translation companies may also offer this service. Try China Translation and Publication Corp, 6F Wuhua Complex, A4 Chegongzhuang Dajie, Te: 6800 2558

These companies are really expensive though and you may be asked to pay 1000 kuai per page. You should double check to make sure that notarization is really necessary, as I'm sure some embassies don't require this.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
