    How would you translate the following:
    Státní obean Eeské republiky
    a. Born state citizens of the Czehc republic
    b. State Citzens of the czech republic

    Similiar question for:
    státním obeanem cizího státu

    a. Born state citizen of a foreign country
    b. State Citzens of a foreign country.

    citizen of the Czech Republic and

    citizen of a foreign country

    i think in english the "state" is not necessary - the "born" is not there at all in the czech

    you will also see these translated as "Czech national" and "foreign national" respectively

    i'm not the best person to ask from the perspective of correct grammar in czech - i would say "rozený občan" for by birth and "naturalizovaný občan" for the naturalised

    The adjective “státní” (=state) is used only in formal texts, because besides being a citizen of the state, you could be citizen of municipality or EU citizen.

    native born citizen = rodilý občan

    (rozený občan = congenital citizen ~ a man of civic virtue)
