Can I apostille a
document in Spanish?


The Texas Secretary of State will issue an apostille or authentication certificate on any non-recordable document that is in the Spanish language as long as it’s properly notarized by a Texas notary public.

But the entire notary jurat or acknowledgment text must be in English it cannot be in Spanish.

If you have a Texas recordable document (birth certificate, death certificate, marriage license, marriage certificate, divorce certificate, divorce decree, TXDPS criminal background check, etc.) that has been translated into Spanish you must have the original English version attached to the Spanish copy and it must be properly signed by a translator and a Texas notary public.
