About Us

HITA is governed by its Bylaws, which were updated and approved by our members in July 2017.

The Houston Interpreters and Translators Association (HITA) was established in 1993 to create a forum for individuals, businesses, and institutions interested in sharing their experiences; to promote the interests of translators and interpreters in Houston and surrounding areas; and to serve in cooperation with other regional and national organizations in recognizing translating and interpreting as professions.

The Association gives interpreters and translators an opportunity to network with others in our profession; to learn about resources, information, and tools which enhance our professional qualifications; provide better service to our clients; and help our businesses grow.

HITA is an affiliate of the American Translators Association. HITA is not an ATA chapter: HITA and ATA do not share any of their finances, and HITA’s organization and activities are not subject to ATA guidelines.
