Unbelievable! May 16, 2008

Quite apart from the morality of it, who would believe a Bacheelor, Masteer or Doctoraate diploma from these people anyway?

Electronic diploma creating May 16, 2008

Now IT is in progress.
You can make good quality certificates, diplomas etc. quickly and cheaply. You can even make a good bank note!
This ill practice is on-going in many parts of the world.
My best policy: Never expect anything that is too good or too profitable.

Regards,
Soonthon L.

No need to post it, you may file it under "DTP Services". I could create you a diploma from "Bogus University" located anywhere in the world, even in outer space if you wish. I'd use PageMaker, while others might prefer Quark, or even the vintage PrintShop.

That's a legit requirement, if - and only if - they require certified translations, and want evidence that you are government-certified in some country. Otherwise it's just a fledgling business trying to cover up their amateurishness with lots of bureaucracy.

But this would have been issued by a translator certifying authority, not likely an educational institution.

There are countries where - like in Poland where I live - the society was indoctrinated for dozens of years that you simply cannot know a language if you don't hold an MA in that language or any science without an MSc in that particular science. You don't wipe off a popular belief in a day...
