A place of growth and support
STIP Association is a place of growth and support. Translation issues and doubts get solved, linguistic solutions and useful information are shared on a daily basis, but not only, as frequently even translation assignments are shared among members within the on-line groups. Topics of trainings and seminars organized by the Association are highly interesting, practical and at really affordable prices. Long story short – highly recommended.
Professionality is the best word that describes STIP Association and its members. Professionality is not only needed for the work of translators, court interpreters and proofreaders, but it is also essential in organizing and planning education and trainings for us, members. I am happy to be part of this community and for the fact that we progress jointly, offering our clients a high quality service, thanks to unity, support, selfless assistance and investment in professional knowledge.
