The New England Translators Association is a professional organization of translators and interpreters with the following mission:
Membership benefits include the following:
There are no certification prerequisites for membership. Membership is open to anyone who is a practicing translator, interpreter, translation editor, or teacher, and to those interested in learning about the profession.
However, we do not have agency memberships. If you function as an agency, you must join as an individual, and at least 20% of your “translation-related” or “interpreting-related” income must come from your own translation, interpreting, editing, or teaching.
NETA board meetings are held four times a year, generally in September, January, March, and June, at BU's CELOP space. All except the June meeting occur just before monthly meetings, and usually at 10:00 AM. Final dates, times, and agendas are announced in advance via email. All active NETA members are welcome to attend.
Membership is for 12 months and costs $50. Membership is offered on a rolling basis. For more information, see Join NETA.
