Dear SLD members,
Please remember to take the ATA Compensation Survey: the deadline was extended to July 30, 2021.
ATA is working with Dynamic Benchmarking, LLC, an independent firm specializing in association-related research, to conduct an industry-wide survey of compensation for translation and interpreting services. Dynamic Benchmarking is collecting the survey responses, thus ensuring your anonymity.
There is a need for a comprehensive picture of the market for translation and interpreting services. Your participation is essential to collecting sufficient data.
The survey results will be an invaluable resource for individuals as well as the industry itself. Not only will you be able to see how your earnings compare to colleagues working in your language pair and specialty, but ATA will also have the data necessary to lobby the U.S. Department of Labor to correct its T&I compensation statistics which currently do not adequately represent independent contractors.
Survey-takers who complete the survey will receive a copy of the results formatted to allow filtering by language and specialty. You will be able to easily compare your compensation for the years 2019 and 2020 to that of your colleagues.
