Registration Spelling of Dean names on translated diploma

Hi

I have submitted a translated diploma which was source verified by the ECFMG a while back and I don't have a copy of it. I want to have another translation of the diploma by a different translator for the purpose registration by a medical board which will be sent to the EICS for source verification. However, I don't remember the way I spelled my Dean's name in the translated one I submitted in the past. My questions are:

1- Does the spelling of the Dean's name actually matter and will the EICS have to reverify my Diploma again if the spelling of Dean's name is different (minor differences) from the one I submitted in the past.
2- Will the ECFMG email me a copy of the translated diploma that I submitted a while back if I request that?


Thank you in advance.


Regards

A Wakil

Yes it's likely you'll have troubles if the dean's name has minor difference.
I suggest you contact the previous translator as they usually keep archives of previous translations if this fails then the next step you call the ECFMG & see if they can tell you how was it spelled (the person talking to you can look it up and no need to request a copy)
Please let us know what will happen with so that others can benefit.

I contacted the ECFMG today. The first representative was reluctant to give the spellings of the Dean's name saying " for security reason I am not authorized to give that information over the phone". When I asked her to ask someone who is authorized to give me that information over the phone, she went and asked and came back saying that her supervisor would be able to do that but they are not on their desk right now. When I called the second time, another representative straight away spelled the names for me!

I am surprised that one person would do something the other was unable to do.

Anyway, this is sorted. Thanks Sabio for your advice.


Best Wishes to everyone.
