Translators often work alone, and choosing to be member of a professional body of translators is a great opportunity to network and attend training courses.
I am member of the Société française des traducteurs (SFT), the French professional translators’ union, which provides professional translators with the strength of a network, thanks to the regular events and meetings organized. It also helps us to keep our skills up-to-date thanks to its training sessions covering everything a translator or interpreter may need.
For the client, the SFT provides the guarantee that the translator is a professional and adheres to a Code of Professional Ethics.
