I am a linguist and educator with a Doctoral degree in Italian. My business, Ephesus Translation Services, is located in Newton, Massachusetts and since 2015 I have been recommended and approved as a translator by the Consulate General of Italy in Boston.

I have maintained by status as a certified translator by the American Translators Association. Because of this status, legal documents that may require a certified translation will have my ATA official seal affixed to them. All translations are promptly completed and accurate, reflecting the formatting of the original. The translations services that I provide are from English to Italian and/or Italian into English. Completed orders can be delivered electronically and sent by insured mail or UPS all over the United States.

Primary Services:

I specialize in the translation of documents needed for the application of Italian Citizenship:

• Certificates of birth, marriage and death

• Divorces and separation agreements

• Name change and affidavits

• NARA Letters and Naturalization Papers

• FBI and State Background Checks

The UCSIS requires all translations to have a certificate of accuracy. Legal translators need to be very experienced when translating for UCSIS. The certification and the seal of the American Translators Association is affixed to each translation. The signature of the translator is witnessed by a notary public who also signs the certificate of accuracy.

I have worked for many Italian citizens who prepared their documentation for the Green Card or for work permits in the States. She can translate Bank Statements, Deeds, Certificates of Births and Marriages:

• Rental Contracts

• Bank Statements

• Real Estate Deeds

• Powers of Attorney

• Italian Birth and Marriage Certificates

• Italian Driving License

3. Academic Transcripts into Italian for the Declaration of Value

As an educator and a college professor, I am familiar with all type of academic records and can translate the documents needed for those seeking the recognition of their degree in Italy:

• High School Diplomas

• College Diplomas

• Transcripts

• Letters of Verification

Additional Services:

4. Translation of Vital Records from Spanish into Italian and Italian into Spanish

All individuals of Italian descent with certificates issued in Spanish can count on me for accurate translations in order to prove their ancestry, or for citizenship applications.

5. Genealogical Translations into Italian

I am a published literary translator and a scholar in Italian Studies. I can read and correctly interpret old manuscripts to retrieve information related to one’s ancestry or to an ancestor’s birth to prove the right of citizenship by decent.

6. Legalization of Vital records with Apostille

I offer legalization services for all the vital records submitted to the consulate or used in Italy. For a reasonable fee, I will obtain all the apostilles on the client’s behalf and deliver consulate-ready certificates to the applicant.

7. Consulting Services for Italian Dual Citizenship

Over the years, I have acquired extensive experience with the preparation of many applications for Italian Citizenship. My knowledge will help you determine which documents need to be translated, and what is the difference between applying in the United States and applying in Italy. I will consult with you and help you manage the process and organize your documents. Appointments in person are available as well as scheduled phone calls.

“Tomorrow I’m sending in the final records required, all stamped and translated and apostilled. I couldn’t have done it without the very prompt and very professional services of Daria Valentini, one of the translators listed on the Boston consulate website. I had no idea I could get translation AND apostille services in one place. So I enthusiastically recommend her for anyone needing translation of apostille services.”
