If I’ve learned anything in 10+ years in the language industry, it’s that we are more alike than we are different. That differences in our personal beliefs are the consequence of geography. That meritocracy is a myth, and that we are all in this together. That cultural convergence is peacebuilding.
Thank you ATA and ALTA for affirming these values and speaking out against discriminatory policies that endanger so many people, including translators and interpreters who took great risks to support the very same US Armed Forces the executive branch now seeks to rebuild.
