Diploma in Translation past papers and examiners' reports
Thread poster: Emilia2305

Dear all,

I am planning to take the Diploma in Translation exam (English to Polish translations) and so I am looking for past papers and examiners' reports. Since I do not have many texts (apart from the ones published on the IoL website), I would appreciate your help, even if you require some compensation for it.


Thank you in advance


Emilia

If you only have the ones that are published on the IOL website, contact them and ask how you can purchase a few more (the IOL provides the extra papers for a fee).

When it comes to the examiner notes, contact them as well and ask if they can email you a report that contains the notes on the EN>PL translations.

Hi Emilia,

Are you sure you can't still get papers and examiners' reports from PWP FS? Their order form (dated January 2013) is on the Dip Trans page of the CIOL website here http://www.iol.org.uk/qualifications/MaterialsForm/OrderForm.pdf and it shows English to Polish examiners' reports and English papers for 2009-2012.

Best,
Karen

Order form is still up there Jan 8, 2013

Dear Emilia,

As Karen said, I'm pretty sure you can order them if the order form is still up there on the Institute's website. Karen's link will take you straight there.

Thank you Jan 8, 2013

Thank you all for your help.

I contacted PWP FS Print and Design and I have ordered my examination materials already.

I received the wrong information earlier that the DipTrans papers are no longer available from them. That was probably about the ones from 2011 which are not available due to copyright problems.

I got this message in December and the new order form was published on the IoL website in January. That would explain everything.

Thank you once again.

Regards,

Emilia
