Student Certification Program

Giving students the opportunity to excel in the translation industry

The Memsource Student Certification Program was created to give students a way to prove not only their skills in the Memsource platform but also their basic knowledge of the entire translation process. Upon successful completion, students are awarded an official Memsource Student Certificate and are welcomed into the Memsource community.

Launched in September 2016, The Memsource Student Certification Program was the answer to our question:
“How do we measure student translation technology proficiency?”

The program is led by professors who have completed the Memsource Certification Program and who use our Academic edition to enrich their translation curriculum. This ensures the highest possible standard of training and encourages universities to follow the latest industry trends.

The certification is issued to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Enrolled at a university which uses our free Academic edition
  • Demonstrate proficiency in using Memsource
  • Have an understanding of the entire translation process
  • Submit the required materials by the deadline
  • Score 80% or higher on the final project

The Student Certification Program is intentionally structured so that students work independently, much like they would in the field. Submissions are evaluated by Memsource for grading consistency and quality. Top performers are then offered participation in the Memsource Talent Endorsement Program.

Looking for additional information or interested in participating? We’re always on the lookout for new institutions to collaborate with.

  • “The certificate shows that someone is not only familiar with the CAT tool but is also using it at an early stage in their training.”
