What is ITI?
The Institute of Translation and Interpreting was founded in 1986 as an independent professional association of practising translators and interpreters in the United Kingdom. It is now one of the primary sources of information on these services to government, industry, the media and the general public. ITI offers guidance to those entering the profession and advice not only to those who offer language services but also to their customers. For further information, see www.iti.org.uk.
What is YTI?
YTI is one of 12 regional groups affiliated to the ITI.
At present, the group has around 120 members and we are keen to welcome newcomers. We hold monthly social meetings plus a number of CPD events each year.
Membership is open to established and aspiring translators and interpreters who would like to play a part in regional group activities. We have a members-only Yahoo e-group for chat, support and news. Our annual subscription is £10 for ITI members, £15 for non-members of the ITI and £4 for students. If you are interested in joining, please contact Josie Worrall, the YTI Membership Secretary.
We hope that our local members will also be interested in joining ITI if they have not already done so.
