You can take at least paraprofessional, which means higher tests are of course acceptable.

Yes, as overseas centers do not offer paraprofessional test, till now. You can take professional tests from overseas centers, if you want.

Hi @MysticRiver @Rakshanda - I am looking to increase my points for 189 EOI application. Do you know how much time does it take to prepare the test to be accredited in a community language? I do not have any translator certifications but I would be willing to study and take a test if it takes less than a month. If you have any info on this or know useful resources would be much appreciated. Thank you

Yes, you can choose to give the test on translating between your own language and English.
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
