Preparing for the ATA Certification Exam: 'Have I Got What It Takes?'
The American Translators Association (ATA) Certification Examination is widely considered the “gold standard” of assessing translation quality in the United States. Unfortunately, in most language combinations only about 20% of candidates earn a passing score. This presentation will review some basic information about the exam, such as available languages, the content and length of passages, the current procedure of “computerized” exams, and types of reference sources permitted and prohibited. More importantly, we will address some reasons why candidates fail the exam, and will discuss strategies to improve your chances of passing – including advance preparation and awareness of common errors.
Warning: This presentation will not give out “answers to the test”! The purposes are to learn:
