Iran has been an international hub of translation and interpreting throughout its long and proud history. The Association of Iranian Translators and Interpreters (AITI) joined FIT back in 2003. It was with tremendous regret that world events prevented AITI from fully participating in and contributing towards FIT and the wider international translation, interpreting and terminology professions.
Nevertheless, FIT was convinced that one day AITI would be active across all aspects of the Federation. We also noted with particular encouragement AITI’s expressed commitment towards contributing once sanctions are lifted. It was in such a spirit of co-operation and solidarity that FIT consistently supported AITI during these difficult times.
The world has been eagerly anticipating the renewed opportunities across diverse domains including cultural, academic and commercial ventures that Implementation Day will bring. AITI’s global presence in the form of FIT membership will be a key advantage. FIT warmly welcomes AITI once again and looks forward to seeing AITI members playing active roles in FIT.
