So apparently I need my degree translated from Latin to English. Has anyone gone about doing this? I am wondering what the process is to do this? I am sure I can type it into a word translator but how do they (the korean govt.) know that the translation is correct?

Why don't you contact your school that gave you the diploma? They'd know.

After that, if K gov want verification, show them 'Romanus Eunt Domus' scene from Life of Brian. After that, would they want to know? Laughing

Did not really pay attention on what happened. Plus some of them are old. I feel for you. I put Latin degrees up there with name variations as things that can trip up immigration.

Good Luck.

Who told you you needed your degree translated, immigration? My diploma is in Latin as well, and I've never been asked for a translation. I'm on my third contract at the moment.

If Kimmi or your recruiter is insisting on a translation, then just contact your university. They should be able to provide either a translation of the text that you can attach to the notarized/apostilled copy, or an actual copy in English w/ your name on it.

Just offer them an off the cuff translation on the spot.

It doesn't need to be translated. Mine wasn't.

Thanks for all the responses! One less thing to worry about.

I will try my university.

Seems like a waste of time since all the information they need should be on your official transcripts.
