A Certified Interpreter and Translator Experience in Illinois

American Translators Association (ATA) 55th Annual Conference

American Translators Association (ATA) 55th Annual Conference



The American Translators Association (ATA) was founded in
1959 and is now the largest professional association of translators and
interpreters in the United States with more than 10,000 members in 90
countries.[2]
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in translation
and interpreting as a profession or as a scholarly pursuit.[3] Members include
translators, interpreters, teachers, project managers, web and software
developers, language services companies, hospitals, universities, and
government agencies.
ATA offers certification examinations for its members in
some language combinations[4] and is affiliated with the International
Federation of Translators (FIT). The association is headquartered in
Alexandria, Virginia.
Unlike a trade union, the ATA represents both
"labor" and "management"—that is, both the translators who
produce written translations and the translation agencies who purchase them.
The ATA likewise does not provide benefits, such as collective bargaining or
health insurance, to its freelance members.[5]
ATA's primary goals are to foster and support the
professional development of translators and interpreters and to promote the
translation and interpreting professions.[6] The Association offers a variety
of programs and services in support of these goals, including a series of
one-day seminars and workshops throughout the year and an ATA Annual Conference
every fall—both of which feature education and training concerning diverse
specialties and languages.
