how would you translate "curriculum vitæ" as in the biographical information that professors and musicians frequenly put on their websites.

it is commonly rendered in english as "vital statistics" but neither of those words are the most common usage

I wouldn't translate it! The term is common in Ireland.

Vital statistics are usually taken to mean height, weight, age, marital status, etc and are not the same as a CV. Curriculum vitae or CV is what is used in business documents.

right.

de Bhaldraithe uses Staitistic Bheatha and gives it the note (admin.) which i'm assuming means "administrative" and therefore might be what i'm looking for. yes/no?

No. Follow what Aonghus says. He knows what's what. And never assume - you know what happens .

I checked on acmhainn, but found nothing.

CV is what is looked for in ads for jobs in Irish, so I'd leave it.

I wouldn't translate it either. The Latin original is the term used in both Swedish and Finnish, as well as in English.

Yeah, it's Latin, so it's usually left in the original in any European language.

translate 'curriculum vitæ' -
'cuntas beatha' a deirim féin agus tuigtear mé mar go mbíonn comhthéacs i gceist. Scríobhaim mar a chéile é, 'Cuntas Beatha'.

I was listening to RnaG this morning and they were broadcasting the job openings. The term "CV" was used more than once. I'd say you're safe if you just leave it and don't bother with the translation.
