Foreign Credits is pleased to announce that we have joined AICE, the Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc.® as an Endorsed Member Evaluation Service.  Through extensive research and deliberation, we have decided that membership in this professional not-for profit organization is best suited for our needs since it is founded on sound research-based policies governing ethical standards in a progressive business environment. We look forward to continuing to provide thorough, accurate, and timely credential evaluation services to the comparative education community in North America and beyond.

The mission of AICE® is to “promote best practices in the international credentials evaluation field, advance comparative education research, and provide the general public with access to trustworthy credential evaluation expertise.”  Foreign Credits Inc. supports this mission entirely, as it compares favorably to our professional activities. Our staff, including the Evaluation Team led by Aleks Morawski, Director of Evaluation Services, regularly participate in numerous professional organizations and present and train credential evaluation methodology to the public at large. Our up-to-date and ongoing research is the hallmark of advancing comparative education knowledge, which we provide to the general public through comprehensive credential evaluation services and resources, including a free GPA calculator and a database of higher educational systems. Foreign Credits maintains our belief in providing expert credential evaluation services while developing trust with the international education community and all individuals educated in the United States and abroad navigating the waters of comparative international education.

Translation for Credential Evaluation

by Admin 26. November 2014 13:08

When you choose to have your academic credentials evaluated by Foreign Credits, you can trust that we will accurately review your coursework and accurately assign credits and grades as if you attended these courses within the U.S. education system. One of the benefits to choosing Foreign Credits for this service is that we offer Translation and Evaluation under one roof. You only need to deliver your academic documents to us via our online submission system and we take it from there!

You may be asking yourself, why must I order an Evaluation if all I want is for my transcript (marks sheet) to be translated? Shouldn’t translation include ‘translating my grades’?

Your grades, as well as the degree conferred, are part of an education system and are given on a grading scale which cannot be expressed through pure translation. Our translation-expert staff take your transcripts and certificates and recreate them in English so that our evaluators may then recognize all of your coursework and education attended and completed. They then spend time to research and apply their expertise to convert your grades, create your GPA, and assign a U.S. equivalent degree obtained.

 

In short, the difference between grade/degree translation and evaluation, is that translation focuses on the literal meaning of the text on each page you submit while evaluation delves into the behind-the-scenes meaning of the names and numbers.
