The American Translators Association is the largest professional association of translators and interpreters in the United States and has more than 10,000 members in 100 countries throughout the world. The Certified Translator (CT) credential of the American Translators Association is the world’s most widely recognized certification for translators. It involves sitting for a difficult exam involving the translation of documents typically encountered by professional translators. The exam is graded by two established and certified translators, both of whom must agree, and has a pass rate of below 20%. The certification also requires a significant amount of continuing education in order to be maintained. You can verify my current certification status at www.atanet.org/verify cert. no. 429418.
