Members Need to Know

Why is public visibility important?

If you want more work in this industry, if you want to earn better rates, if you want to have professional recognition, the public must know you exist, that you are necessary, and that you are worth the money you charge. They must know that they are in very deep and serious trouble without you.

Consider what you can do to promote the industry in your local community and at the same time learn how to grow your customer base. Find out more with ATA's Client Education Program.

Getting It Right

Understand what's at stake

Many buyers are not sure they need a professional translator or interpreter since they know someone who is bilingual and willing to help out. If you're thinking of using a non-professional for your translation or interpreting projects, you need to know why this is risky.
