Tranlation Rookie! Jan 15, 2015

Hello everyone,

I'm exploring the option of becoming a professional translator. Right now I'm working as a teacher in the state of Texas. I've been reading some of your posts, and I've learned so much about it. I want to take the test as soon as I my workload allows me to do it. If I can get tips, as well as test practice materials, it would be greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Worth it or not Apr 21, 2015

I have been Certified with the ATA since 2003.

My yearly income before the certification was approx. $ 40K, my income after the certification has always been between $80 - 110 K.

Do the math....

Hi All,

I took the ATA practice exam for the English>Spanish pair and have the corrected papers.

As far as I know, I can show them to anyone I decide and so I have to others preparing the same exam, and also to translation teachers for their "public" use in class. I would find it ridiculous if they actually asked people not to show them to anyone else after what they charge for them!
I also took a course in order to prepare for the actual exam, and this course was basically the review, by everyone in the group, of past, corrected exams.

Pavel, send me an e-mail through the page and I will scan my corrected papers and send them to you.

Bye now.

Hello, all.

I sent in my Eng>Span Practice Test about a month ago. ATA says it takes 6-8 weeks for you to get the evaluation. (Feels like forever.)

Once I get the results, I can post back on here and let y'all know how it all went for me.

I found that the passage was not diffult in and of itself, but it was very carefully chosen. That is, it was full of traps: false cognates, expressions for which you need to find functional equivalents, attractive opportunities for unsuccessful transliterations, etc. Definitely more geared toward translating skills rather than vocabulary.

I thought it would take me much less time than it actuallly did. Usually, when translating in my fields, I am very fast. But this practice test took me the whole time allowed for its completion. (I was also very careful.)

Cheers!

English to Spanish Exam Feb 21

Passing the Eng/Spa ATA exam is difficult (passing rate is only 20%, I think) but not impossible. I passed it in 2011 after two practice tests and one failure. I think the key is to know what kind of errors they expect you to make. Soon, I will advertise in the Gotham Translator and I am going to start offering some webinars to discuss the ATA Framework for Error Marking, error by error. I hope I can help some people pass the exam. It costs $525 now.
