It has been brought to my attention that some NOTA members are falsely claiming to be ATA-certified on their NOTA profile when they are not.
These individuals have been contacted several times by NOTA’s Board members, but they have yet to respond.
Claiming to be ATA-certified is a serious ethical violation that will eventually be reported to the appropriate ATA officials if the violators do not rectify the situation ASAP.
To the Violators who knowingly falsely claim to be ATA-certified Translators: Your certified colleagues invest a lot of hard work, time, and money to obtain this highly respected certification. Your actions have an overall harmful impact on our profession and your colleagues, and they damage NOTA's reputation. Such actions will not be tolerated and will be promptly reported.
