WHAT IS THE between a TRANSLATION and an evaluation?
A translation will take documents from one language to another. This does not verify the authenticity of the document or create the USA equivalency of the document. An evaluation will take the foreign academic education and create the USA equivalency, as well as verify the authenticity of the foreign document/education.
is a translation all that is needed for licensure or school in the usa?
If you are applying for Teacher Licensure or any other type of Certification, you will be asked to provide an academic evaluation. In order for an evaluation to be completed, IEE Inc. will need your academic documents to be either in English or accompanied by an English translation. Please us the link for more information for an evaluation for Licensure/Certification - http://www.foreigntranscripts.com/licensure.html
If you are applying to school in the USA, generally you will be asked for an evaluation and a translation. Few times do schools ONLY need an English translation. We recommend clarifying exactly what is needed from the school you are applying to. If you need both a translation and academic evaluation, please use the following link for more information for an evaluation for Further Education - http://www.foreigntranscripts.com/students.html
HOW CAN I SEND MY DOCUMENTS TO YOU for a translation?
If it is possible to email your documents to us, that would be preferable. You may also mail them to us. However, please be aware that if your documents are academic and require evaluation after the translation, you may be required to send the original documents for verification purposes.
