A Social Security Administration (SSA) translator may certify a photocopy of the translated
document according to GN 00301.095 SSA Certification of Photocopies. The translator may also be an SSA employee who
can volunteer. For information on the authorization of SSA translators, see GN 00301.345 Authorization of SSA Translators. SSA employees may volunteer because an SSA translator
already has certification authority based on the question regarding authenticity and
regularity on the Form SSA-533 Translation Request. The omission of a certification
stamp on a photocopy is not questionable, if the SSA-533 indicates that the translator
translated from the original document.
