D is about to graduate "cum laude." She is working on her resume, and she wants to list her degree and then "with honors" rather than "cum laude" because (she says) she is afraid that some employers will not know what "cum laude" that means (I actually think the real issue is that she is not getting "magna" or "summa cum laude" and it seems less insulting to her pride to say "with honors").
So, if the school calls it "cum laude," is it dishonest to write "with honors" on your resume? (I know some schools officially use the translated "with honors" but her school officially says "cum laude").
