If you are a translator or interpreter, a small business owner in the T&I industry, or a student who is looking for more resources on these professions, you can find an abundance of information and helpful volunteers via various T&I associations. Joining an association can change the way you work and do business, as well as connect you to professionals all over the world. While there are several associations one can seek out and join, I always suggest the American Translators Association (ATA) and its chapters, affiliates and divisions to those who want more information or simply a way to make meaningful connections with others in the profession.
