TAALS is a professional association that represents language specialists (interpreters and translators) working at the international level, either at conferences or in permanent organizations, and determines their qualifications and standards. Membership in TAALS implies adherence to strict ethical standards and confidentiality, years of experience, and having met rigorous requirements for peer sponsorship.
Founded in Washington, D.C. in 1957, the Association today has members located throughout the Western Hemisphere with several domiciled in Europe and Asia. Many of them are permanently employed by international organizations, government agencies and universities; the others work on a free-lance basis.
