What is FIT?

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. It seeks constantly to improve conditions for the profession in all countries and to uphold translators’ rights and freedom of expression.

FIT is growing faster

Since its Congress held last summer in San Francisco, FIT community has grown bigger than ever. Nine translation associations and seven translation institutes have joined FIT to become regular members and associate members respectively. FIT hopes four new observer members swell its ranks and apply for full membership.
