I'm still confused. Is there a conversion factor to apply to put it into BC/AD terms that the world has been using for hundreds and hundreds of years? Does BCE=BC and CE=AD?

CE = Common Era = AD = Anno Domini (The Year of our Lord)
BCE = Before the Common Era = BC = Before Christ

They’re meant as exact replacements, even though the calendar itself is still centered on the birth of Christ (give or take 5-7 years).
