Authorised Translator’s Examination System


The Examination Board of Authorised Translators maintains a Register of Authorised Translators for the purpose of monitoring their practice and extending the validity of authorisations, and to allow users of translation services to verify the validity of authorisations.

The Examination Board of Authorised Translators represents translator training establishments, practising authorised translators, and users of their services.

The Finnish National Agency for Education is in charge of maintaining and further developing the examination system of authorised translators and monitoring the implementation of the examination.

Since authorised translators are expected to be able to work in at least one of the official languages of Finland (Finnish, Swedish or Sami), the majority of the information is published only on our Finnish and Swedish websites.
