Conditions for admission

Full membership

To join as a full member, the candidate must complete and sign an application form provided by the Chamber and submit the application to the chairperson of the Board of Directors along with supporting documents to show that he or she meets the following conditions:

  • holds a Master’s degree in translation or interpretation; or
  • can provide proof of at least three years of practice in the profession, either translating at least 100,000 words per year and/or providing services for at least 50 days per year.

The application is examined first by the Admissions Committee to check whether it is complete. It is then presented to the Board of Directors who will decide whether to admit the candidate.

Admission does not become final until after the dues for the current financial year have been paid.

Only full members may enjoy all the advantages the Chamber has to offer.

Associate membership

If you don’t meet the conditions set for full membership status, or if you are a student, teacher, employee, civil servant, pensioner, etc., you can still join as an associate member.
