With the development of globalization, more and more people come into contact with us everyday, not only Chinese people but also many foreign friends. Therefore, translation is becoming more and more important, and the salary is also very considerable. As a novice in this industry, how to integrate into this industry as soon as possible without popularity and customer accumulation for many years? Below is a brief edition of Beijing Translation Company.
Integrating into the translation industry, it can be said that obtaining the translation certificate is the fastest and effective way.
Which certificates are useful? Now let's talk about it.
TEM8 for English Major
What we want to say is that language majors must take CET-8. Language majors can't pass the CET-8, but life is not a complete killer.
英语专八（TEM-8，Test for English Majors-Band 8），全称为“全国高校英语专业八级考试”。自1991年起由中国大陆教育部实行，考察全国综合性大学英语专业学生。
TEM-8 (TEM-8, Test for English Majors-Band 8), all known as the "National College English Professional Test Band 8". Since 1991, it has been carried out by the Ministry of Education of the Mainland of China to investigate comprehensive college English majors in China.
考试共有五个部分：听力理解、校对与改错、阅读理解、翻译、写作。五部分共分成两份试卷。Paper One 包括前三部分，Paper Two 包括后两部分。
There are five parts in the exam: listening comprehension, proofreading and error correction, reading comprehension, translation and writing. The five parts are divided into two papers. Paper One includes the first three parts and Paper Two includes the last two parts.
TEM-8 passes with a score of 60. The results are divided into three grades: 60-69 qualified; 70-79 good; 80 or more excellent.
However, TEM8 is not what you want to take. You can take it if you want to. In general, only English majors are qualified to take the exam, while other majors are not qualified to take the exam, even if they are excellent in CET-6.
Of course, in foreign language universities such as Shangwai, Beibei, BeiEr, Xiwai, Guangzhou, Tianwai, Dawai and Sichuan, besides English language majors, other related majors can be registered, such as international trade, tourism management and so on, but generally CET-6 must reach more than 600 points.
Warm Tip: TEM8 only has one chance to make-up exam. If it fails for the first time, it must pass the make-up exam. Otherwise, it will regret for life.
2. CATTI for Professional Qualification (Level) Examination of Translation
CATTI是China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters的缩写，即“翻译专业资格（水平）考试”。由中国外文出版发行事业局负责实施与管理的一项国家级职业资格考试。根据国家人事部有关规定，翻译专业资格（水平）考试已经正式纳入国家职业资格证书制度，该考试在全国推开后，相应语种和级别的翻译专业技术职务评审工作不再进行。
CATTI is the abbreviation of China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters, namely "Professional Qualifications for Translation (Level) Examination". China Foreign Language Publishing and Distribution Bureau is responsible for the implementation and management of a national vocational qualification examination. According to the relevant regulations of the Ministry of Personnel, the professional qualification (level) examination for translation has been formally incorporated into the national vocational qualification certificate system. After the introduction of the examination in the whole country, the assessment of technical positions for translation majors in the corresponding languages and levels will no longer be carried out.
CATTI is absolutely a knock on the door for those who are engaged in translation. Many translation Posts require CATTI level II certificate of interpretation/translation. There are three levels in the CATTI test, namely, Level 3, Level 2 and Level 1, of which Level 3 is the simplest.
All candidates answer the same set of questions regardless of the subject area. The test includes two subjects: synthesis and practice. MTI graduate students can take one subject free of examination with the certificate issued by the school.
There are no restrictions on applying for the second and third-level examinations. They can apply directly for the second or third-level examinations. Only after passing the second-level examination can we take the first-level examination.
