Translating Employment history...

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On my fiance's employment history attachment I listed all her jobs and internships. However, they're all in portugues. For example: she worked at the federal university called "Universidade Federal de Piaui." Should I translate this to "Federal University of Piaui? or am I simply just showing that she has worked in the past regardless of where?

Anybody else have experience with this? RFEs for example???

Thanks,

Matt

The petitioners employment history is essential.

With that said, it would not hurt to "translate" the names of your Fiance's places of employment, for clarity.

Highly improbable that you would receive an RFE for your Fiance's employment history, or the inability of a case officer to understand it.

mgleason,

You are speaking of the G-325A biographical information document? Correct?

If so, on the form they offer a box for the name of the employer, and a secondary box for occupation.

Name of the employer in the first box, job title in the latter.

Should I give an explanation of each job together with my finace's title?

May I disagree? I don't think names - of places, employers, companies - should be translated. For example, I worked for a law firm B.D. Advogados Associados e Consultores. I work for a language school called Inglês é Diverto Ensino de Idiomas e Comércio de Livros Ltda. I haven't translated any of the names.

(the names I posted here aren't real)
