Hi,

I am looking for the translation of the diploma "mention complémentaire". Could anyone help, please?

Thank you!

Explanation:
That's what I'd put on a CV.

For a diploma, you'll need to keep the French, of course and add an explanation in English.

By "diploma" in the explanation, I mean the actual document that is proof of the award. Being a name, you can't translate it. However, on a CV it's more important to give readers something they will understand than to give them a host of foreign words.
