Editors Canada announces the new réviseurs agréés from its French editing proficiency testing program


Toronto, March 13, 2018—The Editors’ Association of Canada (Editors Canada) is proud to announce the new réviseurs agréés! This year, 41 people passed the general editing test and will receive the title of réviseur agréé or réviseure agréée du Programme d’agrément en révision linguistique — Réviseurs Canada.

Since 2015, French-language editors have had a tool to assess their editing skills and receive official recognition from a professional association. What’s more, businesses, government ministries, agencies, organizations and all those who produce texts can now hire editors with proven expertise.

The program includes two tests: the agrément en révision linguistique générale test and the attestation en révision comparative test, which covers the editing of texts translated from English to French. 

“We are very pleased to announce the new réviseurs agréés of our French editing proficiency testing program,” says Gael Spivak, president of Editors Canada. “Ten years ago, we paved the way with the Editors Canada Certification program in English. With the addition of the Programme d’agrément en révision linguistique — Réviseurs Canada, we can truly say that today we are also setting the professional standard when it comes to French-language editing in Canada.”

In fall 2018, Editors Canada will offer the attestation en révision comparative test to réviseurs agréés and réviseures agréées. Registration for the test will begin in May.

About Editors Canada

Editors Canada began in 1979 as the Freelance Editors’ Association of Canada to promote and maintain high standards of editing. In 1994, the word “Freelance” was dropped to reflect the association’s expanding focus to serve both freelance and in-house editors. As Canada’s only national editorial association, it is the hub for 1,300 members and affiliates, both salaried and freelance, who work in the corporate, technical, government, not-for-profit and publishing sectors. The association’s professional development programs and services include professional certification, an annual conference, seminars, webinars, and networking with other associations. Editors Canada has five regional branches: British Columbia; Saskatchewan; Toronto; Ottawa–Gatineau; and Quebec, as well as smaller branches (called twigs) in Calgary, Edmonton, Manitoba, Kitchener-Waterloo-Guelph, Hamilton/Halton, Kingston, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
