What is PMP Exam language aid?


Language aids are a translation service offered by PMI for PMP® candidates whose mother tongue is not English. This service is offered for FREE.

The translated question and answers will be displayed below the original English question and answers on the same page for computer based testing (CBT).

Language aids must be requested during:

  • online payment for the PMP® application; OR
  • in the printed PMP® application form

Currently, PMI provides language aids for the PMP® Exam in the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Hebrew
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Italian
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • French
  • Russian
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Turkish

PMI treats candidates equally whether they have made use of language aids or not. There is no indications in the PMP® Certificate or on the online registry about when language aids are used.

Therefore, it is advisable to make use of a language aid for your PMP® Exam if your mother tongue is not English.
