Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec welcomes 119 new members

MONTREAL, June 6, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Newly certified translators, terminologists, and interpreters proudly received permission to use the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ) titles at an official ceremony held May 5, 2011, at the Gora art gallery in Montreal. The ceremony was followed by a welcome cocktail reception.

"The consistent number of members we certify each year shows that new talent is clearly out there and our professions are attracting steady interest," said professional affairs vice president Réal Paquette, C. Tr., who presided over the ceremony. The new members in attendance also had an opportunity to meet OTTIAQ president François Abraham, C. Tr., who addressed those present. "I am proud of the enthusiasm of new talent in our three professions! The titles of certified translator, certified terminologist, and certified interpreter will open countless doors to you," he asserted.

Members of the OTTIAQ board of directors, mentors, office staff in charge of certification, and Certification Committee chair Maria Duarte, C. Tr., took part in the ceremony. The newly certified members took the opportunity to make initial contact with their colleagues.

Certification is undoubtedly an added value for these translators, terminologists, and interpreters, who chose to become a part Quebec's professional system. "OTTIAQ has a great reputation with language professionals and businesses, as well as employers and clients," said new OTTIAQ member Sandra Gosselin, C. Tr. "The certified translator title reflects a translator's work quality and professionalism. That's why I wanted official recognition of my skills. And, since I've just started freelancing, my title helps me stand out and inspire confidence in my new clients."
