You can email scanned documents, or photocopies can be sent by post. You need also to send your postal address (and also your phone number in case I need to speak to you).
I’ll translate the document(s) straight away, that is, usually on the day I get them. I will email a pdf version suitable for most purpose and mail a printout of the translations to you if needed.
Misspellings are not usual in the Hungarian language. In fact I have never seen a misspelled name in a Hungarian official document ever. The misspelling of Hungarian and other names are very common in Australia. You may wish to have the misspelled words corrected by the local Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages before obtaining a good certificate. Hungarian authorities may reject misspelled documents.
If you are unsure about the spelling of a Hungarian word, enter it into Google.
Medical Certificate of Cause of Death is not suitable for the Hungarian authorities. Please obtain a Death Certificate from the Registry in state of the death.
Marriage Certificates warning
Please be advised that the Hungarian authorities will not accept the Marriage Certificate issued by the marriage celebrant or the priest. It is regarded as a commemorative item only, not an official certificate.
You need to get an extract from the Registry in your state. If you wish to obtain a copy of your Australian marriage certificate you may apply through official web site of the relevant State or Territory Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
The official extract will bear the name of the state and will have a Registration Number in the top right hand corner.
