Are you ready for French editing proficiency testing?FR

The Programme d'agrément en révision linguistique – Réviseurs Canada is here!

We are proud to announce that registration is now open for the first-ever Programme d'agrément en révision linguistique – Réviseurs Canada (PARL) exam, which will take place this fall.

Become a réviseur agréé
Have you dreamed of becoming a réviseur agréé? Your dream has become reality, whether you're a member of the Editors' Association of Canada or not.

With Programme d'agrément en révision linguistique – Réviseurs Canada offers French-language editors the opportunity to have their competency in French editing officially recognized.

For editors who work in French, PARL will

  • provide official recognition of their competency as an editor, and
  • be an effective marketing tool as they search for full-time or freelance work.

Take the first test this year
This year you can take the examen d'agrément en révision linguistique générale. This test will be administered on a computer and is based on the most recent edition of Principes directeurs en révision professionnelle, the association's French-language editorial standards.

The test covers basic knowledge of French editing and the various categories of editing. The questions are designed to test your competency by simulating editing tasks that you might encounter in your day-to-day work.
