– The purpose of ATISDA is to promote and publicize professional standards and practices, networking among translators and interpreters and joint cooperation with other associations. In addition, it aims to conduct research in the field, offer consulting services and facilitate contacts between the profession and potential clients.

– Education and outreach activities include organizing meetings, providing an open forum for the exchange of information, training, and assistance, publishing a newsletter, establishing important contacts between business, government and industry, as well as public relations to inform and educate the general public, fostering ties with allied organizations, and by such other means as the Association may deem appropriate.

– ATISDA’s mission is to promote the professional, social, and financial position of its members through education, networking, industry advocacy and professional development of translators and interpreters.

– In addition, ATISDA aims to promote the recognition of translation and interpretation as professions; protect the rights and interests of professional translators and interpreters; improve the standards and professional ethics, practices, and competence among translators and interpreters; as well as facilitate and procure continuing education and skill-building programs to interpreters and translators in the Southern California Area; provide language resources to individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies in the local and international community; promote the professions of translation and interpretation, and support their competency, skills, proficiency and expertise.

– ATISDA serves as a clearinghouse for information on literature, practices, and new developments concerning the translation and interpretation industry. The association gives members a common forum to discuss issues, create innovative solutions, promote the industry, and present a joint – and more powerful – voice within the industry and to the outside community. ATISDA acts as a regional talent bank for individuals, business, and industry seeking assistance with translation and interpretation.
