Thank you very much for expressing an interest in joining Telegram as a Translator. We would like to offer you a series of test tasks to make sure that we fit well together.

The first stage will require you to complete a test of your English skills (you will receive a separate announcement with all the details).

Before that, we invite you to participate in a preliminary test — an easy quiz that will not be used for evaluation. This is not a requirement, but we highly recommend to participate because it will introduce you to all the necessary features of the Quiz Platform.

The preliminary test will start on August 20, 18:00 UTC and take less than 30 minutes. Here is the quiz link:
https://quiz.directory/quiz/PM0jsfZ9

In case you encounter any issues with the interface, please report them to this dedicated bug report account: @test_feedback.

During the quiz, please note that the interface does not allow changing your answer after clicking on one of the answer options.

这是为了让你适应答题模式而设立的考试,你可以感受下每道题的倒计时,选择的方式。

08-21 晚上,测试开始前8分钟,收到开始考试的通知

The preliminary test has almost started!

Here is the quiz link:
https://quiz.directory/quiz/PM0jsfZ9

The quiz will stay open for 30 minutes and you can take it several times to get used to the interface.

If you encounter any problems during the quiz (e.g. media fails to load, long response times from the interface or other issues), please report them to this dedicated bug report account: @test_feedback.

As a reminder, this quiz will NOT be used for evaluation — so don’t worry about choosing the wrong answers.

考完了后,等到结束时间可以看到题目的正确答案,答对的题目数,以及自己的排名

预先测试的当天晚上

2021-08-21 22:10 收到通知

As part of the first evaluation task, we would like to invite you to complete a series of aptitude tests on Sunday, August 22. The tests will start exactly at 15:00 UTC and will take approximately 3 hours.

We understand that this invitation comes with very short notice. If you are unable to take the tests this Sunday, there will be another opportunity in September or October of this year.

That said, urgent translation tasks with ambitious deadlines that appear at unexpected times are not uncommon at Telegram, so it will definitely count as bonus points for your application if you are able to take the tests tomorrow.

We will send you more information about the tests on Sunday, before the task starts.

You will need:

  • A computer with internet access (desktop preferred).
  • A pen and paper for notes.

Do this now:

  • Check your local time! (UTC time now) The task will open at 15:00 UTC and close at 18:00 UTC, you will not have time to complete it if you are late.
  • Log in on quiz.directory ahead of time to ensure you are able to start the task at exactly 15:00 UTC.

总算不是阴间时间了,我本地时间的晚上 11 点开始,考试时长 3 小时,有3个部分。

诶,为什么要准备纸笔?

2021-08-22 收到考试的详细内容

You have applied as a Telegram translator. Today, you are invited to take three aptitude tests one after another.

There will be another opportunity to take the tests for the translator vacancy later this year, however, we recommend that you take the tests today if you have the opportunity as this will count as bonus points for your application. You will only be able to take each of the tests once.

Test Schedule

15:00 UTC. English Language test.
https://quiz.directory/course/pzEAZwEc/quiz/HRLodYvD
Maximum 30 minutes, 1 minute per question.

== 10 minutes break ==

15:40 UTC. Logic / Spatial thinking test.
https://quiz.directory/course/pzEAZwEc/quiz/UnZ5TCfY
Maximum 1 hour, 2 minutes per question.

== 10 minutes break ==

16:50 UTC. Math Test.
https://quiz.directory/course/pzEAZwEc/quiz/eWDdeE3L
Maximum 1 hour, 2 minutes per question.

If you complete the tests in less than the maximum time, you will have longer breaks between tests. Don’t hurry too much — correct answers are more important than speed.

Please complete all of the tests
Many of the questions were intended to be difficult — and you are likely to make at least some mistakes. But don’t worry! The goal here is not to get 100% correct results, but rather to demonstrate how you solve progressively more difficult tasks under stress. We advise you to finish the tests no matter what.

Test 1. English Language
English is the universal language of communication at Telegram. As a translator, it is vital for you to demonstrate exceptional English skills because translating interfaces and other texts requires a deep understanding of the finest details in the original text, especially when it comes to manuals, blog posts, etc.

Test 2. Logic/Spatial
These questions will help you show off how you handle logical tasks. While they are not directly connected with any of the activities you might perform as a potential member of our team, they will help us learn more about you and which types of tasks and formats of work are best suited for you.

Test 3. Math
While math skills are not required for the position you applied for, we would be grateful if you could also complete the full math test — even if you find it difficult. This will help us to know you a little better and may help to unlock additional opportunities, should you become a member of our team. You are welcome to use a calculator for the math tasks.

===
We will send another notification immediately before the task, but you are welcome to begin as soon as the task opens at 15:00 UTC.

竟然有数学题,好吧,这就是准备纸笔的原因吧。

Nelson Dellis's motive is personal. His paternal grandmother, who died in 2009, suffered from Alzheimer’s. He visited his grandparents in France once or twice a year, and that "spaced-out time" made the deterioration of her mental faculties especially poignant. At dinner a year before her death, "my grandmother looked to my grandfather and said something to the effect of 'Where is Nelson?' or 'How is Nelson doing?' " he recalls—"and I’m right there."

Nelson was stunned: "I couldn’t believe that she could forget—I mean, she hadn’t forgotten, because she was talking about me." But she was unable to connect her memory to the young man at her table. "I had the idea of 'I don’t want that to happen to me.' "

25. Read the following text:

For decades, humans have been selectively breeding cats and dogs to exhibit exaggerated features – particularly in their faces. When it comes to cats, the very flat, round faces of the modern Persian and Exotic Shorthair are classic examples. These breeds are likely a result of humans’ preference for infant-like features that may directly tap in to our nurturing instincts.

While it might be cute for humans to look at, there are various downsides for the animals when it comes to looking this way. This can cause all sorts of health issues as well as breathing difficulties and, in dogs, an increased risk of fatal conditions such as heatstroke.

Select the (❌) WRONG statement.

– Due to selective breeding of pets, some cat breeds now exhibit extremely flat and round faces.
– Breeding of cats is more focused on optical features, breeding of dogs on behavioral aspects.
– Extreme breeding features can lead to health issues and even to fatal conditions in pets.
– Cats with faces that resembles the features of human babies activate caring instincts.

30. Read the following text:

Chameleons have two layers within their skin that control their color. The top layer contains a lattice of guanine nanocrystals. Exciting the lattice increases the distance between the nanocrystals, and the skin reflects longer wavelengths of light. Thus, in a relaxed state the crystals reflect blue, but in an excited state the longer wavelengths such as yellow, orange, green, and red are reflected.

The skin of a chameleon also contains some yellow pigments, which combined with the blue reflected by a relaxed crystal lattice results in the characteristic green color which is common of many chameleons in their relaxed state. Chameleon color palettes have evolved through evolution and the environment. Chameleons living in the forest have a more defined and colorful palette compared to those living in the desert or savanna, which have more of a basic, brown, and charred palette.

Generally, while relaxing, chameleons are observed to be green in color, why is this?

– In a relaxed state, the guanine crystal lattice reflects green light.
– In a relaxed state, the crystal lattice absorbs the wavelength range of green light.
– Blue light reflected by Guanine + yellow pigments available on chameleon skin = green skin color.
– Chameleons have natural green skin that undergoes color change with respect to circumstances.
