A UNION BY TRANSLATORS & INTERPRETERS, FOR TRANSLATORS & INTERPRETERS
The Translators and Interpreters Guild, Local 32100 of TNG-CWA, emerged in 1991 from the collective efforts of independent translators and interpreters who felt that the compensation and respect we receive are not commensurate with the effort we exert and with the talent and knowledge we bring to our work.
Translators and interpreters join TTIG because they want to have more direct control over the conditions of their working lives. TTIG’s mission is to help raise the standard of living for translators and interpreters by focusing on bread and butter issues: assistance in finding work, lobbying for favorable legislation, helping beginners get into the field, and improving pay, benefits and working conditions.
As a member of the larger labor movement through TNG-CWA, TTIG members are afforded collective strength in numbers (CWA represents more than 600,000 working men and women in the U.S. and Canada), as well as support for a better future quality of life for both employees and independent contractors.
