Ukrainian-English model document translations

UK-based professional language associations and organisations have created model document translations for the most commonly needed documents:

  • Birth Certificate (in two versions: late Soviet-era and more recent)
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Divorce Certificate

The Ukrainian model has the language code UK in the file name, and the English model the language code EN. Both the UK and EN models have blank spaces for personal details.

The models can be downloaded and used free of charge from www.charitytranslators.org/LinksforUkraine#Templates.

More templates will be added for the most commonly needed document types.
