The search for professional linguists should start with the American Translators Association (ATA). Founded in 1959 and headquartered in Washington, DC, ATA is the United States’ largest association of professional translators and interpreters (with over 8,500 members in more than 60 countries). ATA’s primary goals are to foster and support the professional development of translators and interpreters and to promote the translation and interpreting professions. ATA members have the opportunity to become credentialed in any of 25 different language combinations by passing one of ATA’s accreditation examinations. ATA translators and interpreters are at the forefront of this new era in communication and welcome the opportunity to help global businesses succeed. ATA is very pleased to join Lingo Systems in publishing this fourth edition of the award-winning Guide to Translation and Localization—Preparing Products for the Global Marketplace.
