About ATIA

The Association of Translators and Interpreters of Alberta / Association des traducteurs et interprètes de l’Alberta (ATIA) is the only association of certified translators, court interpreters, medical interpreters, community interpreters, and conference interpreters in the province of Alberta. The Association was founded in 1979 and is the only member for Alberta of the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC). Through the CTTIC, the Association is affiliated with the International Federation of Translators (FIT).

ATIA is a professional association of translators and interpreters with members located primarily in the province. Association members may be freelancers, independent translators, employees of translation/interpretation firms, government or corporate in-house translators. All members of the Association are bound by a Code of Ethics ensuring the quality of their work and guaranteeing confidentiality.

ATIA supports the needs of clients by ensuring, through its Code of Ethics, standards and certification procedures, that their interests are protected, and by facilitating their contacts with professional translators and interpreters.

Members of ATIA are represented and served by an Executive Council, which is elected at the Annual General Meeting.
