Booking of your Translation tests – most important points to remember

Before you book your Translation tests, do not forget that:

  • Booking is only possible between the dates published in your EPSO account. In general, booking starts at 0h00 on the first day and ends at 12 o’clock (midday) Brussels time on the final day. If you do not book during this period, you will no longer be able to book. Please check the booking invitation message in your account for more details.
  • You will be able to see the list of available test centres when booking via the link provided. The list will also be available at
  • In case of technical problems during the booking procedure, please exclusively contact Prometric via one of the numbers provided in the CBT manual and in our FAQs:
  • Make sure you complete the whole booking procedure. At the end, you should see a confirmation number (e.g. 8800000001507876). If you do not see this number, it means that your booking has not been completed. You can print this booking confirmation at any moment.
  • Straight after the booking, you should receive an e-mail confirming your booking. If you do not receive this e-mail confirmation, please check your spam filter and your junk e-mails. This is not the official confirmation you need to bring to the test centre. The official booking confirmation will be uploaded later (usually within 48 hours after the booking) into your EPSO account.
  • The language code refers to the second language (EN/FR/DE). At this point, there are no changes possible in your application form.
  • Rescheduling of the translation test is not allowed.Some Member States organise some sessions of Training and support to prepare citizens for competitions. If you do not see a link next to your Member State, it means that EPSO has not received any information on this subject from the Member State concerned.

Please check your EPSO account at least twice a week.
