The Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) is the UK’s only independent professional membership association for practising translators, interpreters and language service providers. The organisation aims to ensure the highest standards are maintained among its members with the guidelines laid down in its code of conduct. The code sets out four ‘principles of practice’ for members covering the areas of honesty and integrity, professional competence, client confidentiality and trust, and relationships with other members.
Members are also required to adhere to certain professional values such as accurately and impartially conveying meaning when translating or interpreting, honestly representing and working in line with their qualifications and capabilities and continuing to enhance these through continuing education, as well as sharing knowledge with others.
The ITI also encourages its members to engage in 30 hours of professional development per year. This could include taking part in formal training courses, watching webinars or attending conferences, or in-house training and client visits. This is something we also feel passionately about at STB, encouraging all staff members to regularly take part in any training opportunities available.
When asked about the new feather in his cap, Nick said:
“Attaining MITI status is not only a great personal achievement for me but also a reflection on STB as a whole. We as a company always strive to meet the very highest standards in terms of quality and conduct, so aligning ourselves and maintaining close links with a prestigious organisation like the ITI makes perfect sense.”
