There are two categories of membership. Both Candidates for Certification and Certified Members are professionals who appreciate the responsibility associated with their work. They are reliable experts in their fields and work professionally with their clients and colleagues. They also adhere to the Code of Ethics governing their professional activity.

Candidates for Certification

Entry level members of the association who are working towards becoming certified members. All members have the opportunity to get to know colleagues and, on occasions, take part in professional development opportunities organized by the Association.

Certified Members

A member can become certified by passing the national certification exam in translation administered every year by CTTIC (Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council) OR by means of the on-dossier certification procedure.

Certification is the confirmation of one’s qualifications and skills. Certified Members have proven themselves through the quality of their work, and have extensive experience and knowledge in the field.
