Mission of TAJIT

The mission of the Texas Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators (TAJIT) is to further the professional development and recognition of all judiciary interpreters and translators in Texas. TAJIT has 157 members working in 21 spoken and signed languages, as well as members who are studying to become court interpreters or who work in administration and education.


Why Join TAJIT?

 If you are a court interpreter or legal translator, TAJIT is the primary organization for professional networking in Texas, where you can find jobs, discuss challenges, access training and have a voice in the political system. If you are not yet working in these fields but would like support as you explore the career option and prepare for licensing exams, TAJIT is the ideal place to find guidance and mentoring. If you are not a court interpreter or translator but work with them in some capacity, TAJIT is your source for current information on the complexities, issues, and trends within the profession.
