OTTIAQ translators must comply with a code of ethics and regulations, in particular, concerning record-keeping and confidentiality. 

✔ Professional liability insurance 

OTTIAQ’s certified translators are covered by professional liability insurance of one million dollars per claim, up to a maximum of two million dollars per year.

Translation professionalization, a prerequisite for quality

The SFT (Société française des traducteurs) was founded in 1947 to defend the interests of translators and the translation profession and is a founding member of the International Federation of Translators (FIT), a Category A UNESCO organization.

The SFT today counts more than 1,300 members, making it the largest professional translators’ union in France. The diversity of the SFT’s membership—which includes in-house and self-employed language service providers as well as literary translators—reflects the broad range of activities found in today’s global translation market.

The role of the SFT is to serve as a single point of contact for language service providers of all categories, the users of language services and government agencies.
