Translating Qualifications

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Quick question for anyone who maybe able to help me out. I have been here just over a month and recently gained employment and my employer has asked me to have my Australian qualifications translated over to US. I have been searching and really don't know where to start on where to go or who to use. If anyone could give me some suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! ? Thanks!

Can you explain better what that means? I am assuming it's job qualifications but is there a difference in languages? I wouldn't think any translation would be required between Australia and the United States. Are they looking for a resume or Letters of Employment from your previous employers? Sorry, your employer's request is not making sense to me.

Australian education is often "certificate" based. Instead of baccalaureate degrees like Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, one earns "certificates". For example, Microsoft offers numerous certifications that are global in nature - like the MCSE (Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert). But Australia offers many certificates that might need "translation" to US-based educational systems.

University degrees are normally only three years in Australia. If you are deemed worthy, you are allowed to take a fourth year (called "Honors"). So evaluation of transcripts is often important - as US baccalaureate degrees assume 4 years.

OP, google this: translate australian certificate to us education equivalent

It seems that there are numerous places that might be able to do this for you.

My apologies, I realised after it probably wouldn't of made sense. But exactly what Sukie explained is what I meant ?
