Organizations and associations
Globalization & Localization Association (GALA) – This organization’s purpose is to become the mouthpiece for the translation industry and the resource for language companies. GALA publications, online training, events and other network and development programs help language professionals improve individual and organizational services to meet the needs of multilingual markets. TETRAS has been a member of GALA since 2015.
The TEKOM Association for Technical Communication, which we joined in 2006, aims to strengthen the position of technical editors. They work to ensure that technical documentation, such as descriptions of technical devices, systems and equipment, is clearly understandable to the reader. This technical and professional association also offers consultation and collaboration in the field of technical communication.
We are a member of the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies — the umbrella organization for national associations of translation agencies throughout Europe. They strive to promote higher quality standards and proper business practices. They work to improve the technical education of translators all through Europe.
Our branch in Slovakia, TETRAS s. r. o., has joined the Association of Translation Companies of Slovakia (ATCSK), which was established in 2006. It brings together providers of translation and interpreting services and organizes exchange internships for young translators and interpreters, among other programs.
