Are you planning on writing the CTTIC Certification exam and want to prepare by practicing?

You may choose to write your CTTIC Certification Practice exam for Translation from home* or in a classroom setting in order to get a better idea for what it feels like to be in that environment while writing your exam. To verify on the availability of a Practice Exam for Interpreters and Terminologists, please contact us at [email protected].  

*Please note only members in good standing are eligible to write this exam from home. 

Exam Format

  • – Candidates may wish to translate only one text, or two texts in order to imitate the actual exam in full.
  • – You will translate text(s) from your “source language” to your “target language” (this information will have been provided to us in your ATIO Membership Application form).
  • – Selected text(s) will be approximately 200 words in length and it will be in the same nature as the compulsory/optional texts used in the actual CTTIC Certification exams.
