The Portuguese Association of Translators and Interpreters was founded in February 2015 with the aim of creating a dynamic and active professional association in Portugal, facing the need to organise and give credibility to the profession of translators and interpreters. The Association’s motto is “to interpret the present, to translate the future”, under the commitment of developing the professional growth of its associates and support the integration of future professionals in the job market, namely through its mentoring initiative.
