Translator Test

Take the guesswork out when working with translators by administrating a translator test. This test is for WRITTEN TRANSLATION.

Provide sample content (or we can) and we will review the quality against a checklist. Our native speaking Quality Assurance team will review each sample to ensure the grammar, meaning, spelling, and overall language flow match the quality of the source document.

Translating is a skill not everyone has. Many people are bilingual, but not everyone has the translation fluency that will match the needs of your projects. A quick translator test for candidates will ensure that your translation team is ready for your content.

We offer two types of tests:


You provide a short paragraph (less than 300 words) to the candidate. Then submit the source document (the original English text) and the target document (the translated content provided by the candidate). Our team of native speaker graders will review the content against a checklist and provide a report.

You can be confident in selecting the right applicant with a trusted grader.

We offer the Simple Translator Test in the following languages:

Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Ukrainian, Vietnamese
