UMTIA: Upper Midwest Translators & Interpreters Association, A Chapter of the ATA

College Level Programs

You can think of what we offer at the Upper Midwest Translators and Interpreters Association (UMTIA) as “fill-ups” to keep you performing to the best of your ability. If you’re looking for more in-depth longer term, educational programs, there are a number that are available in Minnesota. Check them out here.

At UMTIA, we believe that everyone who works as a translator or interpreter should have a degree or completed a certificate program in those areas before beginning work in the field.

Our workshops are supplementary, specialized and designed to fulfill the continuing education requirements for professionals who have already entered the field. To help you get started down the path to a career in translation or interpretation, we’ve provided links to some of the Minnesota institutions that have programs that can help you get the right foundational training before entering these fields.
