Licenciado Degree in Foreign Trade

I would leave it as Licenciado and put it in italics. Refer to article(s) published in the Chronicle during the past year by George Fletcher, sorry can't remember which issues. If this is going to an educational institution, it will go to someone trained to evaluate foreign credentials and it is better not to translate the actual name of the degree (although sometimes it is called a "licentiate"). It is something like a bachelor's degree here, but not exactly, and it is better not to get into trying to explain it. I also contacted someone at American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), who confirmed that it is better not to translate the names of degrees as it can lead to confusion. (there you can find contact information if you need).
