ATI Summer Workshop
August 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Come one, come all. The ATI Summer Workshop is here!
Are you interested in becoming an interpreter or translator? Do you have full command of two or more languages? Is it a profession of interest to you and have you ever wondered how to get started? If the answer to these questions is yes, then this workshop is for you!
Translators and interpreters are part of one of the fastest growing professions in the country. The demand for services has increased exponentially in the past few years in the state of Arizona, while language services providers (or LSPs) are trying to keep up with the demand. Spanish is highly sought, as well as more and more languages of lesser diffusion. Arabic, Farsi, Swahili and indigenous languages from Mexico and Central America are now in more demand than ever before.
At the workshop, you will learn about the programs available through the National Center for Interpretation at the University of Arizona and the Pima Community College Translation Studies Program. You will also have the opportunity to learn about how to market your services, while networking with other colleagues!
Come and find out how ATI can help you get started. Join us for breakfast and stay for two presentations from experts in the profession. Let us answer any and all questions you may have regarding the profession and what steps to take to become a translator or interpreter.
