ATA Member-to-Member Program


ATA Member-to-Member Vendor Discounts


Overview

The American Translators Association is committed to providing support to its members in their practice of translation and interpreting. As part of this commitment, the Association has established cooperative relationships with non-member vendors to offer products and services at a discount or other favorable conditions of sale or use. While such services are valuable, they are not specific to the translation and interpreting professions.

Purpose of the Program

In larger professional markets, the number of buyers assures vendors of a profit margin. But in the niche market of translation and interpreting, the number of buyers is limited and profit margins are usually slim. ATA has established Member-to-Member Discounts to get around this market reality and encourage members to develop needed products and services.

Member-provided products and services are not sponsored, endorsed, nor guaranteed by ATA.
