PMI’s credential examinations are administered in English. During the application process candidates have the option of selecting an accompanying language aid. If you want a language aid, you need to indicate your preference as part of the payment process (if you submit your application online) or as part of the application process (if you submit a paper application). When a language aid is selected, you are given the option to view your exam in both English and your preferred second language. (My understanding is that this is normally done via a split screen, and that while the questions will be provided in the second language, the answers may only be available in English.)
For the Project Management Professional (PMP) ® and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) ® exams, the following second languages are available:
- Chinese (Traditional)
- Chinese (Simplified)
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
Language aids are not currently available for the Program Management Professional (PgMP) ®, PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP) ®, the PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) ® credential, or the Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)sm examinations. However, language aids are available at all testing centers.
Once the examination is scheduled, you should review the confirmation notice to verify that your request for a language aid has been processed. If you had selected a language aid, and the confirmation notice makes no indication, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
