How to translate the word "College" in Spanish
As a translator I have extensive experience in
translating academic documents such as diplomas,
certificates of studies, transcripts, etc. .
One word that can be confusing to translate for
some people is the word "College". Some
may think that it is translated as "Colegio"
, but that would be an incorrect translation.
It is important to emphasize that in Latin America
the word does not imply college studies at the
university level, as it is to study in a "college"
here. This means it is necessary to add an explanation
such as "Colegio Universitario".
I have listed here some of the terms that I have
used in my Spanish translations. As any good translator
must always do, I choose the term that goes best
with the context.
- Instituto Universitario
- Instituto Técnico
- Educación Universitaria
- Escuela Universitaria
- Instituto de Formación Profesional
