The New York Circle of Translators (NYCT) is a not-for-profit association supporting the growth and development of language professionals in today’s ever-changing marketplace.
Our members, independent translators and interpreters and language service providers and specialists, offer a wide variety of linguistic services to meet the demands of the many thriving industries in the New York metropolitan area and abroad.
Working in 34 different languages, NYCT members are involved in the financial, commercial, legal, medical, technological, non-profit, artistic, and academic sectors.
We invite all our members to attend our monthly meetings featuring a wide range of experts in the language industry covering topics such as court and diplomatic interpretation, technical translation, use of machine translation and computer-assisted translation tools, and marketing and branding language services. In addition, members have access to continuing education workshops and seminars, both local and national, throughout the year, along with social and networking opportunities to meet and grow their professional circles. Membership also includes access to The Gotham Translator, published six times a year. It features articles by professionals on the many aspects of the language industry and keeps our readers updated on upcoming meetings, NYCT and ATA activities, and members’ news and activities.
