Even though this article on the ATA Chronicle is from 2014, it is still relevant today. Scams are constantly occurring in the translation industry. Scammers impersonate translators and agencies alike. Be careful who you work with and protect yourself.  
AILIA News
 
The Language Industry Association of Canada, AILIA, is actively participating in the reaffirmation of the Canadian Standards for Translation Services CAN CGSB 131.10. Industry stakeholders are working together with the Canadian General Standard Board of Canada to reaffirm our National Standard.

Be aware!
 
We all love technology. However, be aware that the technology on translation and interpreting has developed much faster than the training offered to our professionals at colleges and universities.
 
Consequently, interpreters available in any language, any day, any time, confirmed within minutes, could be a disaster waiting to happen. It is simply the antithesis of high quality. 
Be part of the progress, be a pioneer! Get your OCCI-ACI accreditation now! www.occi.ca
 
We have some advantages for ACI Interpreters: 
  • We will accept the ACI Accreditation as criteria to move you up a level within our tier system of credentials (unless you are already at level 3). By moving up one level, you will receive a pay increase of 8.5% to 10% (effective the first day of the month following your submission of ACI card)
  • You will have preferential booking.
  • A subsidy of 25% of your application fee if you apply during the month of May and submit your ACI card to us by July 31. 
 
We do it because we believe in outstanding quality!
 
We appreciate your interest, however, we only work with highly qualified professionals who meet the criteria as set in the National Standards of Canada.
Empowerment Tips 
 
How does negativity and positivity affect our brains? 
  • For hundreds of years people have discussed the power of positivity
  • Thanks to neuroscience, we recently have learned the power of neuroplasticity (the brain's capacity to change) and its impact on our lives
  • The human brain is wired with a negativity bias, we need to pro-actively replace negative thoughts with positive ones
  • Our brains are shaped by our thoughts
  • Our thoughts create our emotions, our emotions define our behaviour
  • Gratitude and meditation are useful strategies to switch negativity into a more positive outlook in life
  • Positive thoughts contribute to a healthier brain
  • Look at the positive in every situation
