New route to MITI status

The Institute has launched a new route to MITI status for highly qualified translators as an addition to our suite of Translation Assessments.

The Qualification Supported Assessment (QSA) aims to improve accessibility for suitably qualified individuals while maintaining the Institute’s rigorous assessment standards. It is available to those who either:

  • have the DipTrans


  • have a Translation Masters from a UK University where the thesis/dissertation was a translation and commentary (valued at a minimum of 60 credits); been awarded a Distinction or a Merit as long as the dissertation translation and commentary received a Distinction (70+ marks); and undertaken the qualification in the language pair of their application

Having undertaken a successful pilot project with non-qualified members in 2017, resulting in 14 existing members completing the upgrade to MITI status, the Institute is now rolling out this assessment option to non-members who wish to join the Institute as MITIs. It will also suit existing MITIs who wish to add an additional assessed language to their directory listing.

Are you, a colleague or peer at a stage in your career when the QSA is right for you? Find out more about the criteria here.
