Translation Services

A translation converts the text of a document from one language to another.

Everything. Examples include diplomas, transcripts, birth, marriage and death certificates, legal papers, medical documents and bank statements.

  • All of our translations are certified and notarized.

Evaluation Services

An evaluation shows what your foreign education is equal to in the United States.

The Diploma/Degree evaluation lists each academic credential, the institutions you studied in, the dates of graduation and the US equivalent. The Course-by-Course evaluation includes all of the information found in the Diploma/Degree evaluation and also lists all college-level courses, credits, grades and the final GPA.

We evaluate high school (secondary) and university-level credentials. We do not assess trade and professional qualifications. The following documents are typically excluded from an evaluation report: Trade qualifications; Military training; Second language training including ESL programs; Professional licenses or titles such as Chartered Accountant; Apprenticeships; Work or life experience; Continuing education courses; Non-credit professional development courses; Courses or programs taken at non-recognized (non-accredited) institutions.

If documents are determined to be forged, altered in any way, or have been issued by a diploma mill, the application will be cancelled and fees will not be returned.

Our standard processing time is 10 business days. Rush services are also available. In the event that we must contact an academic institution or request additional information, the evaluation will be placed on hold until the necessary information is received.
