I would like to know if the Taylor series for the sine function,

sin(x) = x - x^3/3! + x^5/5! -...

is convergent if the argument of the function, x , is expressed in degrees instead of radians.

Well wouldn't that imply that one degree equals one radian?!?

Ok. You are right. Thank you for your answer.

What is that different series which converges to the sin, where the argument is in degrees, that you mention?
