Foreign Language Challenges For Notaries

Foreign language challenges for notaries can present themselves when speaking with the signer or dealing with foreign language documents.

If the notary speaks multiple languages, there’s no requirement that a notarization be conducted in English. However, in every state except Arizona, notaries are prohibited from using a third-party interpreter to communicate with signers during notarizations. Unless you’re an Arizona notary, if the signer can’t speak with you directly in a language you understand, the best course is to refer the signer to a notary who is fluent in the signer’s language.

In regards to foreign language documents, as a general rule in most states you may notarize a document written in a language you aren’t fluent in, but the notarial certificate must be in a language you can read.
