Description * The Malaysian Translator's Association (MTA), also known as Persatuan Penterjemah Malaysia (PPM) in Malay is the sole professional Non-Governmental Organization dealing with all aspects in the field of translation at large and its relevant academic as well as international relations and social functions arising thereof. The need to establish such an association became apparent and critically demanding for various aspects of promoting, safeguarding and eventual sustaining of the professional elements of both translation as well as code of ethics of the translators. MTA or PPM was conceptualized and registered as a professional association of keen and dedicated members who can further enhance their interest and vocation in the field of translation. The association was established in 1979 under the auspices of Dewan Bahasa & Pustaka (DBP) (the Language and Literary Agency, or presently the Institute of Language and Literature), a quasi-government statutory body under the Ministry of Education, and which was entrusted in mustering the nucleus for the National Language development and dissemination. The association has now garnered over 1200 members who are scholars/academicians and researchers in the field of translation, and practitioners of translation either on a full-time/part-time or freelance basis. MTA’s main aim is to promote professionalism in the disciplines it represents. It is also concerned with the conditions of professional practice amongst its members and strives to defend translators' rights in particular and freedom of expression in general. * MTA is a member of the International Federation of Translators (FIT-IFT) which is an international federation of translators' associations which are located in nearly 50 countries throughout the world. Through its member associations, FIT represents the moral and material interests of over 60,000 translators on all five continents. * MTA is a professional body recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Government of Malaysia. Any document certified by MTA's members and the Association shall be accepted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassies and Foreign High Commissions for authentication or notarization purposes.
