The Association of Conference Interpreters (Askot) was founded in Prague in January 1990. Askot is the only Czech professional association that admits solely practising conference interpreters. An interpreter can become a member provided their application is sponsored by several long-affiliated members and stands a scrutiny of the applicant’s professional and ethical qualities.
Askot is a member association of the International Federation of Translators (FIT/IFT). It provides its members with a platform for community activities and professional development, promotes their interests, and offers practical tips and information to the users of interpreting services.
Conference interpreting is a highly skilled profession. When organising a multilingual event, it pays off to rely on expertise. Choose an expert for your event here.
