Linguist in Silver Spring, Maryland

38 months ago

Greetings all. I noticed that many Arabic linguist positions with government contractors require candidates to take government-approved translation exams, often at a testing site in Northern VA. I recently underwent this sort of testing with one major government contractor, and tested at the Senior level (primary, senior, expert). I ended up declining the job offer with the company, but was wondering if I can use this score with other employers? The test was five hours long so I don't want to have to keep taking it each time I apply for a position. Thanks for your help.

I got a question for you...... I am on my way to take the test next month and I have heard that the test is really difficult! Is it ture? What is the test based on oral and written? If you don't mind can you give me an overview of the test.

Thank you

If it's the DLPT, then yes, you can use it everywhere.

Why did you turn down the offer? I'm curious...

How do I prepare for the Arabic test? Any books? On-line sources? Mock tests? Courses?
