Member benefits

The most obvious benefit for members of translators’ associations is undoubtedly the legal advice on publishing contracts that most provide, but many offer additional subsidiary benefits.


  • STL (Poland), the TA (UK) and NO (Norway) are among the associations that offer discounts on books and theatre tickets.
  • Many associations hold regular translation workshops and seminars for members, and training sessions for rising translators. VdĂś (Germany) and the TA (UK) organise panel discussions on the practical side of translating.
  • Always original, STL has also secured a discount on gym cards for members. After negotiating with different providers, the association managed to secure limited membership in gyms across Poland for association members.
