It is a founding member of the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies (EUATC) – a pan European grouping of translation company associations – and one of the oldest association of its kind in the world.

To become a member of the ATC, you must carry professional indemnity insurance cover and adhere to an agreed Code of Professional Conduct, which has now become the profession's standard.

This translation association offers an independent arbitration service in cases of dispute between a client and a translation company, whether it is a member or not.

As the ATC represents the translation company sector of the profession, it can talk with authority to legislators about matters affecting the translation industry.
