100 of BC’s most influential business leaders will receive a letter from STIBC to emphasize that translating or interpreting is not simply swapping one word in one language for a similar word in another – as unfortunately seems to be the belief of many, even among businesses and organizations. The aim is to reiterate that only STIBC-certified members can guarantee in any context the correct rendering of the spirit as well as the letter of what is expressed in the source language. The letter explains how to find a translator / interpreter on our web site or how to verify if a translator / interpreter is member of STIBC.
