Spanish term or phrase: el que suscribe certifica que la egresada...
I would like what will be the best way to translate this phrase from Argentinian Spanish into American English.

It's the translation of a University transcript from Argentina.

Will be okay to translate as: The undersigned certifies that the graduate...?

Local time: 06:08
I, the undersigned, (do hereby) certify that graduate
Explanation:
I, the undersigned, (do hereby) certify that graduate (name)

I have no problem disagreeing with the rest, because:
1.- In English we always use the first person and not the third as in Spanish.
2.- Normal usage would be "do hereby", but it may be left out.
3.- No "the" before "graduate", it mimics Spanish and is not used in English.

agree  Beth Farkas: one caveat - if "la egresada" is not followed by the name, then you would need to say "the graduate", i.e. - I certify that the graduate completed....

  -> Right, either "the" or "this". Since the CONTEXT is not complete, then all we can do is assume a certain case.

agree  María Eugenia Wachtendorff: Thank you very much for the free lesson, Henry!

  -> Todo lo contrario; es necesario cambiar de tercera a primera persona, pues si no lo hacemos nuestra traducción adolece del "síndrome de tercer idioma". You're welcome!
