ATA is committed to promoting high standards in translator and interpreter training and to the development of translation and interpreting programs within the American postsecondary system. The Education and Pedagogy Committee was established to foster these Association goals.

The Committee is asked to do the following:

  • survey and monitor translation and interpreting programs offered in U.S. institutions of higher learning;
  • report current trends in translator and interpreter training to the Board of Directors; and
  • serve as a liaison to the American Translation and Interpreting Studies Association (ATISA).
