香港理工大學於2022年9月7日與中國外文局全國翻譯專業資格(水平)考試(CATTI)項目管理中心簽訂合作協議,成為香港首個獲官方認可的CATTI考點,並由中文及雙語學系負責考場設置及考務管理等事宜。

CATTI於2003年推出,是唯一納入中國國家職業資格制度的語言類考試。考試分筆譯及口譯兩部分,合格者可獲國家認證的「中華人民共和國翻譯專業資格(水平)證書」。CATTI的翻譯專業資格認證備受全國廣泛認可,去年全年累計報考人數逾35萬,是對參試人員口譯或筆譯雙語互譯能力和水準的評價與認定。

首場在本港舉行的中英文筆譯及口譯考試將於2022年11月5至6日舉行,並於即日起至10月10日接受考生報名。詳情請瀏覽https://www.polyu.edu.hk/cbs/cts/hk/catti/

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University hosts the first China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters (CATTI) in Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University signed a cooperation agreement with the China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters (CATTI) Management Center of the China International Communications Group (CICG) on 7 September 2022. The agreement authorises PolyU to be the official CATTI test center in Hong Kong, and the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies is responsible for the management and organization of the test.

Launched in 2003, CATTI is the only language test incorporated into China’s national vocational qualification system. Divided into translation and interpretation categories, candidates who pass the test will obtain a Qualification Certificate of Proficiency issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MOHRSS) and CICG. The test is designed to access the proficiency and competence of candidate translators and interpreters, and it is widely recognised by employers throughout the country. Last year, over 350,000 candidates took the test.

The first English-Chinese translation and interpreting test in Hong Kong will be held during 5-6 November 2022. Applications are welcome until 10 October 2022. For details, please visit https://www.polyu.edu.hk/cbs/cts/en/catti/.
