FIT (the Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs/International Federation of Translators) is an international grouping of associations of translators, interpreters and terminologists. More than 100 professional associations are affiliated, representing over 80 000 translators in 55 countries. The goal of the Federation is to promote professionalism in the disciplines it represents.
The Statutory Congress is coming soon
In less than four weeks’ time the Statutory Congress will welcome member associations to debate the important questions facing FIT and to elect a new Council. That will be on 2 and 3 August in Berlin, immediately before the FIT World Congress which is open to the public.
Nominations and working documents are accessible under Member information, using the password that all Member associations have received.
FIT is celebrating its 60th anniversary and we hope you will join us at some of our events. The first was the FIT Asian Translators’ Forum, held in Malaysia from 27 to 29 August 2013. The anniversary celebrations will culminate at FIT’s 20th World Congress in Berlin in August 2014.
