Danielle
Dutch translation:drs
Explanation:
Hi, Danielle, if I were you, I would write the English title in full and in brackets you could say 'equivalent to/gelijkwaardig aan drs in de whatever, 'letteren' in 'medicijnen' of something like that. We don't use the term 'arts', so leave it untranslated. Drs will disappear as the Dutch educational system is on the move and shortly drs will be Masters. drs = doctorandus.
