Durham Tech has largest number of students in attendance at CATI conference

On Saturday, April 8, more than 20 students in Durham Tech’s Translation and Interpretation Program attended the Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters (CATI) Conference that was held at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. At this year’s conference, Durham Tech had the largest student representation from any college or university in attendance! The annual event is a great opportunity for students to network, receive additional training, and meet up with Durham Tech alumni. Through their attendance at CATI, students were able to receive a more global representation of the interpreting and translation professions.

Several students were recognized by their service sites for their contributions.  For a glimpse into one student’s experience in the Community Spanish Facilitator Certificate Program, check out an article appearing in the Durham Tech Volunteer Blog: https://www.durhamtech.edu/volunteerblog/?p=750.
