Translators Associations Latin America: ADICA

An association that underscores the profession's prestige

Translators Associations Latin America: ADICAEstablished in 1979, the Argentinean Association of Conference Interpreters (Asociación Argentina de Intérpretes de Conferencias or ADICA) represents more than 60 well known local interpreters. This non-profit professional association aims to represent simultaneous and consecutive professional interpreters in Argentina and extend the improvement and meaning of their activities.

Other objectives of this translators association are to encourage its members' professional performance; protect their interests and promote the use of ISO Standards, ensuring that the interpreter's work and the indispensible technical support go hand in hand; and promote full knowledge of the profession as well as an awareness that the success of an event attended by foreign guests depends on communication.

The ultimate goal of this translators association is to allow its members to deliver high-quality services, with excellence, in a highly confidential environment.

ADICA’s members have a good reputation in the Argentinean and international markets for the quality of their work and their permanent updating and training in all different fields of knowledge.

They are expected to respect ADICA’s code of ethics, this being an assurance for both the customer and the interpreter.

How to join
