CIOL Qualifications

Our translator and interpreter qualifications have been developed to meet the highest professional language standards and are regularly reviewed to ensure that they remain relevant, reliable and valid. 

Created by fellow language professionals they are designed to allow candidates to demonstrate the highest levels of translating and interpreting. They are widely recognised by government departments, agencies, business organisations and public services.

About Online Assessment

We believe the move to our Online CIOL Virtual Centre for all of our professional exams has been the right thing to do, to secure our assessment provision now and for the future, whilst keeping our candidates safer through the Covid-19 pandemic.

We understand this is still a difficult time for many, and realise that undertaking assessment online comes with its own challenges and can create anxiety for some candidates. However, we aim to provide you with the support you need so that you, our candidates, can progress successfully.
