Objectives of the Association

The purpose of the Chamber is to promote solid relationships among its members and be a source of information relating to their statutory duties. The Chamber also wishes and aims to enhance the quality and uniformity of translations.

The sworn-in interpreters and translators work for the Courts upon request. They provide their best specialist and personal knowledge either as interpreters or translators for any official or administrative translation.

The Chamber sees that each member respects both his/her responsibilities accepted when sworn-in at the courts as well as the Charter of the Association, so that any person who needs to have a document translated may be certain they apply to a competent translator.

Sworn-in Translator-Interpreter's Ethics

In 1999 the Chamber of Expert Translators and Sworn-In or Registered Translators in the East of France adopted a seven- point charter which was included into its rules and regulations. By becoming a member of the Chamber the sworn-in translator-interpreter undertakes to respect these rules of ethics:

  1. The translator is responsible for translations upon which his signature and seal is affixed.
  2. The translator will refuse to interpret a translation other than what he considers to conform to the original text.
  3. The translator is required to inform by note of any mistake, contradiction, omission or deletion noticed on the original document.
  4. The translator-interpreter is bound by his duty to impartiality.
  5. The translator-interpreter is bound by professional secrecy, she/he must not in any case disclose the content of the documents entrusted to her/ him, nor the nature of the conversations she/he may be witness to while at work.
  6. The translator-interpreter undertakes to behave honestly with her/ his fellow members, members of the Chamber.
  7. The interpreter-translator is required to assist judicial authorities. Refusal to collaborate, unless valid, is not accepted.
