Hi Translator Colleagues,

I have been looking all over the Internet trying to find a resource or table that provides the official conversions for grades from Algeria or France. The grades need to be presented as U.S. letter grades. These are grades from an institution of higher education, not secondary school. Does anyone know the name of such an official reference or where I might find this information. I would very much appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

Hi Mary Aug 14, 2003

In the French Consulate, Cultural Department or whatever their name is, they should be able to help you.
The Algerian system is similar to the French one, and in every country the French representatives have a conversion table in order to validate French certificates for the local authorities.
Good luck, I wish they will be cooperative.

Another idea

You could also try to post them as KudoZ questions, explainig what it is about. They shouldn't be too many, I think. But it's not sure that they will be the "official" translation.
