Persian Farsi Language Notary GuidePersian Farsi Language Notary Guide فارسی

A Persian Farsi language notary guide is a tool to help notarize a document written in the Persian Farsi language, or for a signer who speaks Persian Farsi.

If the notary does not speak Persian Farsi, this helps to bridge the language barrier.  It is similar to a Persian Farsi phrasebook used by a tourist when traveling in a Persian Farsi speaking country or community.

In Colorado, the notary may not use a human as a translator or interpreter.  This is because the notary would not know if the translator is being honest.  The notary must communicate directly with the signer.

Persian Farsi is ranked as the 18th most widely-spoken language at home in the United States, with about 440 thousand speakers.  The largest Persian populations in the United States are found in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, New York,  Washington, D.C.,  Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Boston, and Seattle.  A dialect of Afghan Persian is known as Dari.

Persian is written using a modified Arabic alphabet and is read from right to left.

In 1935, Persia was internationally renamed to Iran (Land of the Aryans), its original name before the Greek name was used.

You can listen online to Iranian American Persian Farsi language programming from Radio 670 AM KIRN in Los Angeles.

See our ancient history article on the Persian Empire Language, Writing and Scribes.

Google Translate is free software that can translate a Persian Farsi document.  It is available at or can be downloaded as a phone application.

You can cut and paste text from a Persian Farsi language document, upload a document file, or enter a website address for translation.  That may be useful to translate a Persian Farsi language website for a foreign embassy or consulate.

It helps the notary to use reasonable care to confirm the title and purpose of the document.  The translated document is not notarized, so the translation does not need to be 100% accurate.  The original document in the Persian Farsi language is notarized.

The notary certificate can be in the Persian Farsi language if the notary speaks Persian Farsi.  If the document is going to a foreign country and needs an apostille certificate attached by the Colorado Secretary of State (SOS), then the notary certificate must be in English.

If the signer does not speak good English, a Persian Farsi language notary guide that includes common notary questions and sentences may be a useful tool.  Below are some suggestions.

The notary may include others as needed for the situation, and then use Google Translate to generate a numbered list.  The notary can then point to the line number to select a phrase or question.  The signer could type an answer in Google Translate and then translate it into English.

The notary should write the title and description of the document in the notary journal.  For example, a Power of Attorney in Persian Farsi is called a وکالت نامه.  The number of pages should be shown.  Ask the signer to fill in any blank spaces before notarizing.

It is best to use the date format: July 4, 2015, rather than 7/4/15 (mm-dd-yy).  In many foreign countries, the date is in dd-mm-yy format, so 7/4/15 would be 7 Apr 2015.

A Persian Farsi language notary guide can be a useful tool for a notary to accommodate a Persian Farsi language speaker.
