ATA Reaches Out to the Department of Justice

The terms of a contract by the Washington, DC firm SOSi to provide interpreting services for the nation’s immigration courts under the Department of Justice generated a lot of concern in the translator and interpreter community. ATA President David Rumsey worked together with the Board to put together a letter that nine national translator and interpreter associations signed outlining the challenges with the contract and the need for using professional interpreters. The letter was sent to the Executive Office of Immigration Review and the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Justice.

    Thank you for engaging in this matter.
    I constantly encounter great ignorance regarding the importance of professional interpreting and translation and therefore consider this letter essential for the provision of adequate services in immigration courts.
