Dear colleagues:

Has anyone of you taken the EU accreditation test to become a EU freelance interpreter? I'll be sitting the exam in barely a month (DE, EN and IT into ES) and would like to have some more insights or advice you could give me. I know the basics already (how long every test takes, what they expect, etc.) but I would also like to hear about what they expect from us applicants: I have heard that you can fail even if your interpreting was correct, just not good enough or

Try looking for some more advice and information on interpreting.info.

I passed the test 6+ years ago (EN and DE into PL). I think they pay quite a lot of attention to your technique (e.g. how you deal with various challenges, how good your delivery is) and to the quality of your A language.

I think the best advice to give you is to do your best and let the jury do their work, and trust you will be jugded
