There is a considerable amount of controversy regarding the validity of testing translators. Many feel that they have been misused and are nothing more than a waste of time. If you are following the guidelines in this text so far, it should be fairly easy to respond to a request by an agency to take a test by offering work references and samples of work you have done.
However, if they insist, you can politely decline; you will not be paid for the translation work that you perform as a “test” and there are many agencies where you can offer your services.
