ATA-Certified Translator

The American Translators Association (ATA) is the largest professional association of translators and interpreters in the United States. It offers certification to members in selected language pairs and is the standard requirement for certified translations for American institutions (for example colleges and universities). As an ATA-Certified Translator (CT) for German into English, I am qualified to prepare and certify translations for US institutions, for example academic transcripts for college applications. (Please note that I am not a sworn translator, i.e. I do not prepare certified translations for European organizations or institutions.)
