Their election will drive exchanges between the Chinese translation community and its international counterparts, while enabling TAC to play a greater role in helping the world better understand China, a TAC statement read. Since it joined FIT in 1987, TAC has been represented on the FIT Council, its decision-making body.
More than 130 associations and training institutes are affiliated with FIT, which groups translators, interpreters and terminologists, according to its website. Its goal is to promote professionalism in the disciplines it represents.
