FIT is a federation of national associations, not of individuals. All translators, interpreters or terminologists interested in our activities are invited to join their national association or any other association affiliated to FIT.
Can my association join FIT?
The FIT “family” of translators’ associations and institutions is always happy to welcome new members to its fold.
Your association can join FIT as regular member when its members are individual professional translators, interpreters or terminologists. This excludes organizations having students and corporations as regular members. I f you are not yet convinced of the advantages of being a FIT member, you can join for two years as observer without voting right. Universities and other training institutes are welcome as Associate members, also without voting rights. You will find more details on FIT membership in the menu “About us“, the bylaws and the Rules of Procedure on this website.
How much does it cost?
FIT annual fees for 2012 – 2014 are:
- Regular members: 2,82 Swiss Francs per capita. (Your association must have at least 20 members, so the minimum contribution is 56.40 Swiss Francs). The maximum annual contribution is limited to 2,350 Swiss Francs.
- Associate members: 395 Swiss Francs
- Observer members: 112 Swiss Francs
What is the procedure to become member?
Fill the online form, join your bylaws in their original language and in English or French and pay the admission fee of 75.00 Swiss Francs.
Once your application is complete, it is submitted to the FIT Council who can admit you as Candidate member, up to the next Statutory Congress who has to approve it. But your association will appear immediately on the FIT Website and you will have full membership rights, except for the voting right.
Please don’t wait for the next congress to apply. Send your request at least 3 months in advance. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the FIT Secretariat.
