IoLET Diploma in Translation

The IoLET Level 7 Diploma in Translation (QCF) is a professional qualification that tests professional translating skills at a postgraduate level of competence.

The examination is open to all. However, Candidates are advised to ensure prior to registering, that their level of linguistic attainment in the source language is at least equivalent to a good Honours degree, and that they are familiar with the relevant cultural background. In line with the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) requirements, as a guideline candidates should be 19yrs+.

It is the responsibility of each Candidate to ascertain that they are sufficiently prepared for the examination, and competent in both the source and target languages, have good writing skills and the ability to translate at a professional level. Candidates may choose as the source language any recognised language of a nation or a national group having a culture, literature and expression of thought to which the syllabus of the examination can be applied and in which they are suitably qualified. Occasionally, an examination cannot be set for rarer languages. Please refer to the following DipTrans Languages List on the IoLET webpage.
