How will my language knowledge for the CAST Permanent ‘translators’ profile be tested?

EPSO tests will only assess your knowledge of languages as follows:

  • Your language 1 (L1), which can be any of the 24 official EU languages, will be tested through the verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning tests in a form of multiple-choice questions. Your knowledge of L1 needs to be at least at level C1 (proficient user).
  • Your language 2 (L2), which can be chosen from amongst English, French and German, but must be different from L1, will be tested through a language comprehension test in a form of multiple-choice questions. Your knowledge of L2 needs to be at least at level B2 (independent user).

Further information on the above tests is published on our sample tests’ page.

Recruiting services may organise additional tests, such as translation tests.
