    The word Clerk in a legal document

    If you happened to translate documents like an Apostille, what word in Russian did you use for the word Clerk is it Клерк? Or should I use something else?

    I haven't done it, but the possible neutral word could be "должностное лицо" (lit., officer). Клерк is not used in Russian documents, this word may be used in literature to describe or speak of clerks in countries other than Russia - most likely English speaking (and it's perceived as a foreign word, hence it may also be used in everyday speech humourously sometimes, but not in serious documents).
