I was wondering how someone can become SDL TRADOS Translator's Workbench Certified. I have a certificate from attending an SDL Trados training course but I'm not sure if this is the same thing as being Certified for Translator's Workbench. The reason I'm asking is because there is a project that I wanted to submit an application for but it requires this Certified status.

Link for purchasing the examination Feb 6, 2014

Dear Sarah

You have the option to purchase the examination that will provide you the required certification. Just log in to your account in SDL My Account > My Certification and Training. There you will see the various options of certifications that can be purchased. The one you need is at the bottom of the page. The examination consists of 40 questions, with a minimun pass grade of 30.

Sometimes the certification is required in order to verify that you really own a SDL Licence.

Regards

Clarisa

Sarah.... You can easily use the trading manuals to study. You can download them off your SDL account. When you enter into your account, there is a section where you can take a placement exam. If you bought the program with the certification program included you can take the exam with no additional cost. If not, they sell a courseware + exam.

Just one thing... Feb 6, 2014

... the user specifically asked about "SDL TRADOS Translator's Workbench" certification. This is no longer available through SDL as this product is not even supported anymore, and has not been sold for some time.

So certification for SDL Trados Studio and MultiTerm is of course no problem. But there is no facility for achieving this though the older tools.

It may also be worth noting again that unless you have to connect directly to a server based on these old Technologies then you probably do not require Translators Workbench for any work... it may be something you are used to and like to use, but it is most likely not essential.

Regards

Paul
