Q. My friend suggests that I only hire translators listed on the Italian Consulate’s website.
A. Not true! You should engage the most competent and most convenient to you. As a matter of fact, on the Consulate’s website list of translators it is clearly stated that the “... list of freelance translators provided by the Italian Consulate upon request [...] is not a list of official translators of this Consulate General, which holds no liability from their translations” hence, whenever you read or come accross to translators introducing themselves as “registered translator at the Italian Consulate in Melbourne” or anywhere else in Australia, nothing is far from truth, and that does not mean unless the translation of your documents is done by them will not valid.
