2015 wrapup

OSTI has accomplished a lot in 2015 thanks to the hard work of its members.

Our conference was a success,and we look forward to another one in 2016.

Our efforts to help the Oregon Health Authority define the role of health care interpreters were fruitful, and we did so in cooperation with ASL interpreters.

We had our first vote to install new members.

We represented our members in other forums, such as the Association of Legal Professionals and in Washington DC, advocating for working with certified interpreters and translators.

We gave our first free presentation.

Two members passed the ATA exam – one did so at the exam hosted by OSTI at the conference!

We kept our members informed on court interpreting updates.

We kept our members informed on the most up-to-date best practices in the industry on translation and interpreting.

We started a jobs page for our members.

Happy holidays, and we look forward to serving our members and the rest of the interpreting and translation community in Oregon in 2016. Our calendar lists the activities coming up!

We look forward to your partnership in 2016!
