Another route to becoming a Qualified Member of ITI

Written by Jacqui Flint

Jacqui Flint, ITI Admissions Officer, discusses a new route to MITI status.

Red arrowITI has a rigorous admissions process for applicants to become a Qualified Member ensuring we maintain the highest standards. Until now, this process has included only one option, of a written translation assessment, completed to a professional standard and assessed by our own peer members. However, ITI recognises that there are other rigorous assessment options available to translators resulting in nationally recognised qualifications such as Masters level degrees and the DipTrans.

Following considerable discussion within ITI and a pilot scheme run at the end of 2017, we have now officially launched the Qualification Supported Assessment (QSA). This provides another route to MITI for those applicants who already have appropriate qualifications, skills and experience.

The three options for qualifications accepted by the ITI under the QSA are:

  • A full DipTrans qualification in the language pair of the application
  • A Translation Masters Degree with Distinction (from a UK university) where the Translation and Commentary Final Thesis/Dissertation accounts for at least 60 credit points and is in the language pair of the application.
  • A Translation Masters Degree with Merit (from a UK University) where the Translation and Commentary Final Thesis/Dissertation accounts for at least 60 credit points and is in the language pair of the application, and where a Distinction was awarded for the final Thesis/Dissertation (70 marks plus).

QSA applicants are also required to evidence their professional ability and experience by submitting an electronic portfolio of evidential material, references and demonstrating a good working knowledge of ITI’s Code of Professional Conduct, all of which will be assessed by ITI.  

If you hold one of the above qualifications and would like to apply for MITI status, then further details can be found here
