The CTP Designation is a leading certification program designed exclusively for those professionals who work in the translation industry. We provide a way in which translators can improve their qualifications and credibility in the translation industry.
The CTP Designation Program is modeled after many online courses offered by Ivy League institutions. The CTP Designation is a self-study program and the exam is administered online from your place of work or home. Our examination system uses a dual layered, IP Tracking and password protection system so that you do not have to attend a testing center to complete your test requirements. The online examination must be completed in 3 hours – more than sufficient time for those who have read and reviewed the required materials.
To complete this program, you must pass our online examination, which tests your translation industry and language-specific knowledge. The CTP Designation Program is currently available for 22 different language pairs. Our exam evaluates participants’ abilities to translate in both directions. For example, if you choose the English-Spanish language pair you will be tested on translating from English into Spanish as well as Spanish into English. The language options are: English, French, Chinese (Mandarin), German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Japanese, Greek, Korean, Polish, Dutch, Irish, Romanian, Hindi, Thai, Indonesian, Punjabi, and Danish.
In addition to the benefits of gained knowledge, industry recognition, resume adjustments, and better career choices, our team provides additional benefits to CTP Designation members such as resume feedback and editing, career advice, and links to online resources which can help grow your business or career.
The CTP Program provides participants a broad foundation of knowledge that allows them to gain specialized training within the translation industry. While nothing can replace years of industry experience, the program aims to increase the breadth of knowledge that current industry professionals hold and in addition, assist those individuals transitioning into the translation industry. Toward this end, we have constructed the CTP certification program to provide a strong base of industry knowledge. The exam will certify you as a professional translator and it will assure that you possess professional competence in translating.
