As a rule, the USCIS requires English translation of all foreign language documents submitted in support of a visa petition. If your birth certificate is in Spanish, they would need to read and understand it in the working language of USCIS, which is English.

The translation of your birth certificate or other relevant documents can be completed by a translator who certifies that they are competent to translate and the translation is correct. You can access more information on the USCIS site about their translation requirements through this link.

This translation certification must include the name, language knowledge statement, title of the document, address, date and signature of the certifying party. (if notarization is added to the certification for a document it could be used as a certified and notarized translation)
