This month, we go back to basics. Our source document is a New Zealand birth certificate issued in 1993 and related to someone who was born in 1896. The point we’d like to make is that formatting matters. Our guidelines for selective translations include formatting issues such as using upper and lower cases, font size and format etc. So if you don’t have them, request a copy. Click the image to find out more, and please remember: never change the template.
