Exam Information

To become an associate member of ATIA, you must pass the examination process for EITHER Interpreters OR Translators.

After you become an associate member, you can write the examinations for other membership categories or language combinations.

Associate-level examinations are held online a minimum of twice per year (Spring/Fall). 

Step 1: Pass the prerequisite examinations (held in spring and fall). All candidates must pass ATIA’s Code of Ethics examination and an English Proficiency examination.

Step 2: Translators who pass the Code of Ethics examination and the English Proficiency examination will write the Translation examination (in the language combination confirmed at registration/payment time and prior to sitting the English Proficiency examination). Interpreters who pass the Code of Ethics examination and the Reading Comprehension for Interpreters examination will then submit their Application Form (see links to specific forms here).
