Good morning, Brazil! Bom dia Brasil! I am in the process of translating a birth certificate registered in São Paulo and at the top it lists the officials of the Registry. The first, 'escrivão' I know to be 'notary', but I have no idea what the second, 'oficial maior' means in English. Could somebody give me a hand here, please? Thanks. I know it's practically another question, but the first person mentioned above has 'BEL.' before the name. I would like to know what that means, too.
