• ATIF Year VI

    One week shy of ATIF’s fifth anniversary, the Board announced the appointment of an Interim Board to lead the Association in 2015.

    Giovanna Lester and Daniela Guanipa will take the helm of ATIF from January 1 through December 31, assisted by Maria Mallarino, Emmy Prieto, Dianna McCrary, Sylvia Korwek and Carmen Sáenz. You can learn more about our new Board by visiting our website (www.atifonline.org), under About/Board.

    The Interim Board was appointed to get ATIF ready for this year's elections, lead the organization back to its original Business Plan by aligning its growth, market reality and membership expectations, to receive the 56th ATA Annual Conference in style, among other things. The Interim Board has a one year term. Its members are veterans, former board members, as well as new individuals. The mix is intended to ensure continuity and insert new perspectives into our work.

    We believe in ATIF. We count on your vote of confidence and support of our Interim Board. ATIF’s commitment to its membership is reflected in the actions we take to ensure that the best interest of the members remains our main focus.

    "It is great for Florida.

    I hope that the IMIA and ATIF can work side by side in a collaborative way so that each promote each other's work and IMIA can serve as a resource to ATIF members that specialize in medical interpreting just as ATIF can serve as a resource to IMIA Florida members that want to broaden their horizons. Our call will be for all our FL members to support and join the only state association ATIF and we hope that ATIF will encourage their medical interpreter members to join IMIA which is the only national trade association for medical interpreters."

Perry said the revamped system installed in February will be tested in the 15th Circuit, which includes Palm Beach County, and he hopes to expand it across Florida’s courtrooms.


The interpreters control camera angles and audio levels inside the courtroom from their desk, talk privately with any of the parties at a hearing and appear in real-time on a large LCD flat-screen monitor in the courtroom.

  1. Here comes the future, staring us in the face. Paraphrasing William Carr stated during the II InterpretAmerica Summit “Technology will not replace the interpreter; interpreters afraid of technology will become obsolete.”

    The demand is greater than the number of qualified interpreters available. And not all interpreters are able to travel on short notice. As a result, remote interpreting is becoming more prevalent and we need to adapt to it. But we also need to educate our clients and let them know remote interpreting does not fit all situations.
