Hi,

you can use this:

select col2, sum(Test1) as Test1, sum(Test2) as Test2, sum(Test3) as Test3
from(
select col2 , 
case when col1='TEST1' then 1 else 0 end as Test1, 
case when col1='TEST2' then 1 else 0 end as Test2, 
case when col1='TEST3' then 1 else 0 end as Test3
from table_name
group by col2 
)a group by col2

input/resultThis query will match the requested result:
SELECT
        param
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST1' then col3 end) AS test1
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST2' then col3 end) AS test2
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST3' then col3 end) AS test3
FROM Input
CROSS JOIN (SELECT 'COL2' AS param UNION ALL SELECT 'COL3' AS param) cj
GROUP BY
        param
;

But what happens to 'english' as a value from the input table?

{+ edit, details}
    CREATE TABLE Input
    	([COL1] varchar(5), [COL2] varchar(7), [COL3] int)
    ;
    	
    INSERT INTO Input
    	([COL1], [COL2], [COL3])
    VALUES
    	('TEST1', 'english', 3),
    	('TEST2', 'english', 3),
    	('TEST3', 'english', 3)
    ;

**Query 1**:

    SELECT
            param
          , max(case when col1 = 'TEST1' then col3 end) AS test1
          , max(case when col1 = 'TEST2' then col3 end) AS test2
          , max(case when col1 = 'TEST3' then col3 end) AS test3
    FROM Input
    CROSS JOIN (SELECT 'COL2' AS param UNION ALL SELECT 'COL3' AS param) cj
    GROUP BY
            param
    

**[Results][2]**:
    
    | PARAM | TEST1 | TEST2 | TEST3 |
    |-------|-------|-------|-------|
    |  COL2 |     3 |     3 |     3 |
    |  COL3 |     3 |     3 |     3 |

You need to ensure that each column is a data type that can deal with the source data, so here I have converted col3 to varchar; but this is only because it appears col3 is an integer, if it already a (n)varchar then the conversion would not be needed.
SELECT
        param
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST1' and param = 'COL2' then col2 
                 when col1 = 'TEST1' and param = 'COL3' then cast(col3 as varchar) end) AS test1
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST2' and param = 'COL2' then col2 
                 when col1 = 'TEST2' and param = 'COL3' then cast(col3 as varchar) end) AS test2
      , max(case when col1 = 'TEST3' and param = 'COL2' then col2 
                 when col1 = 'TEST3' and param = 'COL3' then cast(col3 as varchar) end) AS test3
FROM Input
CROSS JOIN (SELECT 'COL2' AS param UNION ALL SELECT 'COL3' AS param) cj
GROUP BY
        param
;
