If I wanted to get my documents translated for dual citizenship. Would I be able to have the guys and gals on her translate the documents for me?

It would depend what kind of documentation you are thinking of.

For the Dual Citizenship Application, I will need my birth certificate, mothers birth, parents marriage all translated, or do you need to get them professionally done

Normally for such documents a translator is recommended by the relevant consulate or embassy, and are usually on a list held in these places.
For the Italian Embassy in the United States see this link (just scroll down to Translators - the site is in Italian ans English) -

http://www.italyemb.org/consolati.htm

If you 'browse' the site - their A-Z is very useful.

Several consulates--New York among them--do the translations themselves. You might want to check with your local consulate.

I had all my documents translated by myitaliancitizenship.com and they did a great job. When they were presented at the consulate, there were no problems. I think it cost about $25 per document page.

On another forum someone said you could translate them yourself. I've just started, and it's been great fun.
