International Institute of Business Analysis expands global reach

TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) continues to aggressively expand its global reach by making available multiple translations of the seminal reference work for the profession and its certification exams.

Kevin Brennan, Executive Vice President of IIBA® says, "In our global economy, it is critical to the development of the business analysis profession to find consensus on the uses and common translations of key terminology." Most business analysis reference texts are in English which can hinder implementation of best practices worldwide.

Earlier this month, IIBA released the Spanish translation of A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide). This guide is already available in English, Portuguese, Japanese, French and German. Together these are the six largest languages used on the Internet.

Also starting in November, in partnership with the European Association of Business Analysis (EABA), eligible candidates can complete the Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) exam in German at all computer-based test centres where IIBA certification exams are offered. The exam is available in German in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and on request in other countries. 

IIBA® members can download different translations of the BABOK® Guide at no cost at www.IIBA.org and non-members can purchase a PDF for $29.95. Hardcopies of the guide are available at all major book retailers. Information about writing the CBAP® exam is available in the Certification section at www.IIBA.org.

IIBA® thanks the volunteers who dedicated considerable professional time and effort to the translations of key documents.
