What is an ATA Division?

The American Translators Association (ATA) offers 21 professional-interest Divisions to provide specialty-and language-specific information to their members. These groups offer a wide variety of benefits and services, all organized by Division volunteers. More importantly, Divisions provide targeted networking to assist their members in today’s competitive economy.


[id logo]The Interpreters Division was established in 1998 to serve interpreting professionals working in many different language combinations and in many specialty areas, including community, conference, court, government, medical, schools, and workers compensation interpreting. Its members bring together a diversity that has made the Interpreters Division a special and unique association.

The Division has grown rapidly since its organization. The amount of members varies from year to year and is generally around 4000 members.


The goals and objectives of the Interpreters Division include offering a forum for discussion regarding interpreting issues, providing information, fostering collaboration and promoting the continued growth and development of the profession of interpreting.
