The article raises questions about the increase in the number of sign language translators in Ukraine thanks to the Ukrainian Deaf Society. However, the old test of the level of formation of professional competence of sign language translators in the form of tickets does not meet the challenges of the time. Because it does not provide support for the linguistic rights of the deaf, because the old school of teaching took into account the quality of translation of calcified sign language, rather than the actual Ukrainian sign language. Attention is focused on the development and testing of innovative assessment of gestural communicative competence of sign language translators, in particular the educational sphere, which was carried out using computer technology. It is stated that the developers of the computer program are representatives of CODA, didactic speakers of the program are engaged in native speakers. It was informed that the testing of the innovative form of assessing the level of professional competence of translators was carried out in a group form. Abroad, there are also simple and binary forms of testing professional skills. It is indicated with which the professional category educational sign language translators were admitted to the modern certification. The conditions for passing the test at a professional level and specially-designed tasks using computer technologies, which were divided into blocks, are disclosed. The content of task blocks characterizing different forms and types of translation between Ukrainian language and Ukrainian sign language is revealed. The results of the innovative testing are examined and the groups of mistakes made by sign language translators are analyzed. It was emphasized that in comparison with sign language translators of other fields of activity, educational sign language translators had better results, however, they were lower than expected. It was noted with proof that the innovation of assessing the professional competence of educational translators showed a low level of sign and communicative competence for work in the educational field, which implies a change in the content of training forms and advanced training of educational sign language translators. The article presents diagrams and a table of the results of testing the assessment of the level of formation of the professional competence of sign language translators.
