Smile Does ECFMG accept a photocopy of diploma translation?

Hi guys,

My original medical diploma is not in English, so I hired a company to do the translation. This company also offers a PDF version of the translation. My question is, do I have to send the original translation, or it is also OK if I just print out the PDF and send it to ECFMG?

Thank you for your input!

You have to send the original translation (which has the translator stamps on it) along with a photocopy of the original (non-English) Diploma.
