The China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters (CATTI) is a state-level vocational qualification examination for translators and interpreters to demonstrate that they show certain aptitudes required in the industry. Passing candidates will be awarded a Qualification Certificate of Proficiency issued by the China International Communications Group and Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the People’s Republic of China and China International Communications Group.

There are 4-level tests for translators and interpreters: Senior Translator, Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Level 3 is the easiest and the Senior Translator level the most difficult. Candidates can choose to take the test in their preferred language pairs.

Following the launch of CATTI in 2003, the Centre for Translation Studies provides training for the English-Chinese translation and interpreting test. The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has become the first official CATTI test center in the Hong Kong SAR since 7 September 2022, and the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies is responsible for organizing the CATTI tests.
