Interpreters and translators do important work. That’s why at the Upper Midwest Translators and Interpreters Association (UMTIA) our mission is to improve the quality of interpreting, translating, and language resources in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota and North Dakota.

As a professional association, we achieve our mission by improving the quality of work our members produce. We do this by helping our diverse members connect and network with one another, and by offering continuing education units (CEUs) for interpreters and translators in Minnesota through our trainings, workshops and events.
