The selection process consists of three stages: application review, translation test, and interview.
In the first round, we select candidates based on their applications and personal statements. Next, the one-hour written test held at our test site involves translating a short except (about one A4 page) from a Korean short story into a target language.
Lastly, the interview evaluates your understanding of Korean literature and linguistic ability. If you live overseas, it is possible to submit a translation sample in the place of the written test, and conduct a phone or Skype interview instead.
