lueurdehache respondeu a sua postagem: How about letting them write in their native languages and having their letters professionally translated and certified? Works for diplomas!
spanishskulduggery respondeu a sua postagem: Definitely ask the teachers you know best or who had you most often. You want people who know your best strengths even if you translate it.

As always, I can always rely on you guys for help when I need it. Thanks so much!!
I actually didn’t think of getting them translated professionally! That would be a great idea, albeit expensive.
The editing idea is a good idea too, but I’ve always been told that the student should not see the recommendation letter. However, it may be necessary!
I turned to tumblr 1) because you all are amazing and 2) because the person who is in charge of the application process for this certain certificate is not really good at answering questions. I’ve sent her an email explaining my situation studying in a different country and asking for the application requirements and a suggested application timeline (which are not all online). She basically just said to send her letters of recommendation now, not giving me any other details or even how many letters I need and what they need to state. I’ve sent her follow-up questions, and she literally just replied to one of them, saying the letters should be in English. So, I just have to be patient with her I guess or contact someone else if it gets too difficult to communicate with her. Maybe if I get a calling card I can make a phone call to ask questions if necessary.
Thanks again everyone! I’ll be keeping you updated as things progress.
