ITIA – Irish Translators’ and Interpreters’ Association
The Irish Translators? and Interpreters? Association / Cumann Aistritheoir? agus Teangair? na h?ireann (ITIA) was founded in 1986 and is the only professional
association in Ireland representing the interests of practicing translators and interpreters.
The ITIA aims to promote the highest standards within the profession by demanding the highest professional and ethical standards of its members who are required to sign up and adhere to the ITIA ?Code of Practice and Professional Ethics'. In addition, they introduced a 'Code of Ethics for Community Interpreters' in 2009.
The ITIA also endeavors to foster an understanding among translation and interpretation clients of the highly-skilled and exacting nature of the professions.
The members hail from all corners of the earth, reflecting the multi-lingual and multi-cultural nature of Ireland today. The ITIA members, therefore, provide a wide range of language combinations and subject area specializations to meet the demand for translation and interpreting services.
In addition to providing guidance to our Association members, the ITIA acts in an advisory capacity to Government bodies, NGOs, the media and others involved
in the provision of translation and interpreting services.
