|Description||The objective of the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters is to actively promote the ethical practice of translation and interpretation. The keywords here are “actively promote". We are facing several problems today in our profession: crowdsourcing, emphasis on price instead of quality, flooding of the translation market with non-professional translators, limitations on the extent to which we can discuss rates and the need for a strong online presence where new translators can be guided by experts that have translators' interests in mind, among other concerns. This new scenario calls for new players to fill an existing gap by tackling these issues, and we aim to build up an international network to achieve this.|
