What are the Admission Criteria used by European Associations for Professional Translators

Translation has become a pan-European profession, and increasing numbers of translators working for clients outside their own country are seeking membership of more than one professional association. FIT Europe welcomes this development, and urges professional translators to apply for membership of professional associations both in their country of residence and in the markets where they do business.

It often happens that associations receiving applications from members of another association elsewhere in Europe would wish to offer them some financial incentive and seek to keep the procedures for admission to a minimum. In order to do so, they need full details of the conditions candidates have already met for admission to their original associations.
