Code of Ethics

Below you will find links to the most up to date code of ethics. The court codes and the medical codes may differ some but in the end, they all come down to Accuracy, Confidentiality, and Impartiality. The Upper Midwest Translators and Interpreters Association (UMTIA) strongly advocates that all working interpreters and translators fully comply with the code of ethics.

If you have trouble doing this, or you disagree with the codes, we encourage you to learn how to comply by attending training. If after training, you find you cannot, we encourage you to consider another career that makes use of your language skills.
