Default Applying for British passport for kids

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me..
I want to apply for a British passport for my 3 kids; no problem with citizenship because I'm English :-)
My problem is understanding what kind of translation I need of their Italian birth certificate; does it need to be "giurata" (or "asseverata")? As far as I can see the "International birth certificate" won't be accepted, am I right?
Gah I have emailed the consulate, the gov.uk site and all I get is the stock answer "read our site" which obviously is not useful at all.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.

Hi,
Please note that just because you are “English” - does not automatically mean that your children are entitled to British passports!
British nationality laws are quite complex and it depends on how you are British - as to whether your kids automatically are.
You therefore need to do the necessary research to confirm that your kids are British - before going through the process of applying for their passports - in case they are not actually British!
Cheers
Steve

Yes Steve, I have checked and they are entitled to British passports.
I may have written the phrase in a jokingly light tone but (hopefully) people don't ask questions to which they haven't already researched as much as possible..?
So my question still stands if anyone can help...

Hi,
Here is the link to register a child born abroad.
This is not totally necessary for obtaining a passport - but could make it easier.
