English term or phrase: Welcome to Carshalton College.
Welcoming new students to college.
Sara Chadwick
Indonesian translation:Selamat Datang di Perguruan Tinggi Carshalton.
Explanation:
"Perguruan Tinggi" is Indonesian word of "College". "Perguruan Tinggi", however, is rarely used as a proper name, e.g. Carshalton College. I say rarely, because few colleges use that word, too, as a proper name, e.g. Perguruan Tinggi Ilmu Al Qur'an. Therefore, the word "College" can be translated into "Universitas" if the college offers education in various field of Study, or "Sekolah Tinggi" if offers one field of study only, and "Institute" if offers a special expertise.
