The Science & Technology Division (S&TD) was created as a home within the ATA for people who translate texts related to science and technology, to provide them with opportunities for communication and networking. The division existed in the ’80s and ’90s, then faded away for lack of volunteers. The history page tells you more about that time. In 2010 a group of three translators decided to attempt the process for restarting it. The ATA Board approved the new division in July 2010.
A Leadership Council composed of volunteers administers the division’s forums and organizes networking events. Please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas or want to get involved. We look forward to hearing from you.
