Why hire a certified member of ATIA?
Certified translators have passed a national certification process. In Alberta, this means that they have first passed ATIA’s associate-level admission examinations and then successfully completed the certification examination, set by the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC), or they have submitted a large body of their work for review by an evaluation committee. Alternatively, they have “transferred in” from another provincial association as a Certified Translator.
Professional interpreters have specialized training and experience in specific areas. Certification processes take both into account. Consequently, clients who want the best value and service should look for:
- court interpreters who are certified
- medical interpreters who are certified
- community interpreters who are members of ATIA
- conference interpreters affiliated with the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC)
Publications by the American Translators Association are very informative:
Certified and Associate translators and interpreters are bound by ATIA’s Code of Ethics to deliver faithful translations and interpretations while maintaining client confidentiality at all times.
