Education / Pedagogy / How do you translate Bachelor or Master degree after Bologna Process?
English term or phrase: Bachelor and Master Degree
Hi,

I moved to Istanbul in 2012 after a Master degree in translation in Belgium. For its equivalence in Turkey, I had to get it translated and approved by the notary.
The problem is that the translator has translated Bachelor by "ön lisans" and Master by "lisans" with the following note: "Bologna kararlarından bu yana Ön lisans için Bakalorya, Lisans için Master terimleri kullanılmaktadır".

I'm not sure that this is the right translation and I think it should be "Lisans" and "Yüksek Lisans". Do you think the translator is right? If not, which document should I show him to prove that I'm right? This may cause not getting the right equivalence.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Reference information:
Genellikle 2 yıllık mesleki okullardan (vocational schools) alınan bir diploma olduğundan ön lisans için 'a two-year degree' ya da bugüne kadar kullandığım gibi ' a ( two year) vocational school degree ' şeklinde çevirmek daha anlaşılır hale getiriyor.

agree  Güzide Arslaner: Aziz Bey, iki yıllık bölümlerin tümü meslek yüksekokulu değil. "vocational" kelimesini geçirmemek daha yerinde olur. Bilginize sunmak istedim, iyi çalışmalar.
