In an increasingly globalized world, it is now far more common for students to select the college or university course they wish to follow, wherever it is in the world. Many U.S. universities are chosen by students all round the world.
In addition to this huge movement of students, there is the movement of people searching for better and more interesting career paths. It’s not surprising that translation services are one of the fastest growing industries today. As long as people continue to want to communicate, do business and move from one country to another this demand for professional translation services is not going to diminish.
Who needs to see a degree translation?
One of the special skills that a translator can provide is degree translation services. Degree translations are required whenever a student wishes to enroll or apply to do a postgraduate course in a U.S. college or university. The admissions team will want to check on the capability of the applicant to be able to complete the course. One of the documents that will be needed will be the qualifications that the course applicant already has such as an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Most courses require a minimum level of education and qualification before admission to a higher level course is allowed.
Degree translation services may also be called upon when someone who was educated overseas wishes to apply for a job in the U.S. The employer who is recruiting will want to examine the qualifications and experience of the applicant. As long as the supporting documents are not in English they will need to be translated so they can be interpreted and properly assesses against the employer’s criteria. This is where degree translation services are essential so that the degree can be used to support the application.
The other main bodies that will make use of the translated degrees provided by Degree Translation Services are government bodies, particularly the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (U.S.C.I.S.) and the Department of Labor (D.O.L.). Visa applications are processed by both bodies at some point and every single document including degrees and other qualifications must be either in English or translated into English by a certified translator.
Degree translation services means certified translations
Most degree translations will be processed by a certified translator because that’s what a university, college, employer or government agency will require. Certified translations are translations that are accompanied by a certificate issued by the translator that confirms that the document is an accurate translation of the original.
When a degree translation service carries out a certified translation of a degree or other type of educational qualification, every word must be translated accurately. Many degree certificates have unique markings on them such as watermarks, logos, stamps and seals. As these probably all have some form of words or text on them, they must also be translated for the degree to be acceptable to some agencies.
