Do the translation tests, even if you don't get a job straight away, it's good practise and you get some feed-back from the agencies.

IF you get feedback a test could be worthful. But I never got one and as I understood most of my colleagues here either.
But if you work for agencies with quality assurance some of them give you feedback. And I rather advise to find them instead of wasting the time with test translations.
