English term or phrase: Government statist
Dear all,
I'm translating an Australian adoption certificate issued in late '60s
All the documents were processed by the office of government statist at that time.
What would be the best way to translate this position,
I believe it is' ufficiale dello stato civile addetto alla trascrizione degli atti', Is there a way to make it shorter?

ufficiale dello stato civile
Explanation:
I would not try to make it shorter. I think it is important to maintain a complete idea of what the position is. If this requires many more words in Italian rather than English, I would definitely use them all :-)
