agree  David Connor: I support this translation. I too think the "praecl." word intensifies the honours, so this will be acceptable..

  -> Thanks. Nothing on the Yale site though. Strange.

agree  Joseph Brazauskas: Or 'the most outstanding honours in Far Eastern Studies'./I've seen it quite often. But since this is what Yale calls it in English, I would go with that, though it's not exactly what the Latin says.

  -> Thanks Joseph! As far as I can see there is no Far Eastern Studies programme at Yale. Would you see "the most outstanding Honours" on a degree certificate?
