Translating Nevada

It’s official! As of this week, I am a proud board member of the recently formed Nevada Interpreters and Translators Association (NITA). A few months ago, I was considering starting such an association, but luckily I heard through my colleague Karen Tkaczyx, a fellow translator who lives in northern Nevada, that NITA had been started earlier this year.

NITA is headquartered in Reno, and I am thrilled to be representing the organization in my neck of the woods (Las Vegas). As opposed to many other western states (mainly, California), Nevada has not had a strong statewide professional translation and interpretation association, and NITA is bound to change that! My fellow board members, including president Tracy Young, Rossana Bertrani-Roach, Álvaro Degives-Más, MariCarmen Cresci, Yovanna Estep and Karen Tkaczyx are committed to advancing and elevating the quality and availability of language services in the state of Nevada. NITA offers its members professional development opportunities, unique NITA e-mail addresses, access to the NITA ListServ, and much more. Our organization has experienced significant growth since its inception earlier this year, and if you are a language professional in the Silver State, we would love for you to join us. If you would like to get involved and help us grow, please drop me a line.

Here’s to our successful professional association in the Wild Wild West!

Congratulations, Judy! NITA is lucky to have you on its Board, and I think it sounds like a very dynamic new association. With all of those horse rustlers and card sharks in Nevada, we know you need a good professional group :)

Join the conversation! Commenting is a great way to become part of the translation and interpretation community. Your comments don’t have to be overly academic to get published. We usually publish all comments that aren't spam, self-promotional or offensive to others. Agreeing or not agreeing with the issue at hand and stating why is a good way to start. Social media is all about interaction, so don’t limit yourself to reading and start commenting! We very much look forward to your comments and insight. Let's learn from each other and continue these important conversations.
