Event Details

The webinar will include general information about the American Translators Association (ATA) certification program and specific tips on preparing for and taking the exam. No practice tests will be given in conjunction with the webinar, but participants will receive sample test passages in their language combinations to use for practice on their own.

This session is intended both for candidates who are planning to sit for the ATA certification exam in Austin on July 20, 2013, and for potential candidates who want to learn more about the exam before signing up.

The registration fee includes a packet of materials containing general information on the ATA certification program and exam, as well as language-specific tips for candidates (not available for all language combinations) and samples of previous exam passages. Non-members may join AATIA before registering and pay the member rate.

Presenter:  Mary Esther Diaz, M. Ed.  Esther is ATA-certified in translation of Spanish to English and English to Spanish. She has 25 years of experience as a translator and interpreter and over 20 years of experience training adults. She created and teaches the seven-course Translation and Interpretation Certificate Program at Austin Community College and also provides specialized training for translators and interpreters in the health care field.

Registration deadline: Registration will close one hour before the webinar starts. However, in order to be assured of receiving important instructions about accessing the webinar and about information to be downloaded beforehand, participants should  register by June 23rd.

Please note:  Although ATA-produced materials will be presented during this webinar, it is not sponsored by ATA, nor is the presenter an ATA exam grader.  Participation in the webinar does not guarantee success on the certification exam. No practice tests will be given in conjunction with the webinar. Potential exam candidates are strongly encouraged to request a practice test from ATA in order to receive feedback from an official ATA grader.
