The Oregon Society of Translators and Interpreters (OSTI) is a professional society dedicated to support the needs of professional interpreters and translators in Oregon and Washington. We promote recognition of the remarkable work these professionals accomplish in serving our community.
OSTI originated in January of 2014 out of a need for an organization that encouraged and supported professionalism amongst local interpreters and translators.
Our mission is to promote and provide continuing education of our members in their respective fields through educational workshops, social events and an annual conference. We support the ethics and standards of practice of the profession, and encourage certification in their field. We mentor newcomers to the field.
We foster open communication between members regarding professional issues through our member listserv. We act as a resource among and between language professionals and direct clients.
