Preparation Tutorial for Associate-level Translation Examination

The ATIA Associate-level examination preparation tutorial is offered to anyone planning to attempt the associate-level translation examination set by ATIA or another provincial association. Those wanting to register for the certification examination should consider a specific course for the certification examination.

The candidate will complete three translations of similar length and content as the associate-level examination. These translations will be marked and annotated by the tutor. The objective of this tutorial is to give candidates an insight into the practice of translation and make them aware of potential pitfalls in a source text. The tutor will provide detailed feedback aimed at improving the translation quality.

(Please note: you can complete this tutorial in one language combination/direction only. If you wish to do a tutorial in another language combination you must apply separately for that language combination.) 

The tutor may choose to suggest additional tasks or readings. Marked translations will be returned within a period of 2 to 3 weeks. All three translations should be completed within a period of three months.

The start date of the tutorial is flexible and it should be completed within three months.

Terms and Conditions

  1. The candidate is responsible for handing in the translations by the deadline specified by the tutor.
  2. The candidate will submit the translations in word-processed format by e-mail to the tutor by the specified deadline.
  3. The tutor will mark the translations and provide feedback electronically. The tutor may choose to use the notes function provided by most word processing programs.
  4. The tutor may decide to provide the candidate with oral feedback. In this case, the candidate will bear all related costs (e.g. phone costs).

By registering I agree to the conditions outlined on the information sheet. The registration fee is non-refundable. Should ATIA be unable to locate a tutor in the language combination specified above within a month after receipt of the registration, the registration fee will be refunded in full.
