Coming soon: Translation aids for LEED credential exams

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

LEED’s impact resonates on a global stage, and its adopters, advocates and practitioners are growing more diverse every day.

There are LEED projects and LEED professionals in nearly 200 countries. To serve this demand, GBCI has translated several study resources and exams for the LEED professional credentials into Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and French.

*For individuals interested in taking the LEED AP with specialty exam with a translation aid, please make sure to register for the standalone LEED Green Associate exam and the standalone LEED AP exam, as the combined LEED Green Associate and LEED AP exam is not available with a translation aid.

Hi Ila, LEED v4 Green Associate exam translation aids are now available.
Nora, actually I wanted know when the green associate study guide v4 and the core concepts third version will translated to portuguese, because now, only the version 2009 is translated.

Hi Illa, The Portuguese translation of the 3rd Edition of the Core Concepts Guide is undergoing translation and will be available for purchase by fall 2014. USGBC is also looking to our education partners to create v4 study guides, and we will be working with them to consider options for translating into other languages.

It would be good to have an official translation of the study guides. Maybe it could be part of a volunteer program, I know I would be interested in helping to translate the guides to spanish.

Hi Vanessa, we now have study guides available in Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese. Learn more.
I am interested on taking the LEED GA Exam in Brazil where I am located. Instituto Alumni here in Sao Paulo provides such exams. Please let me know if the exams at Alumni are provided in English, which is my preference.

Hi Tarcisio, the exams are offered in English or in Portuguese globally, so yes you can take it in English in Brazil. Just select “English” as the language during registration.

How about a translation service of uploaded documentation? i.e. a project team uploads documentation in its native language and USGBC offers , for a fee, a translation service.
