Recognized Company status is available to private translation companies who have been working in English<>Welsh translation and interpreting for three years or more. Companies must employ a minimum of three English<>Welsh translators/interpreters as core staff. At least a third of the core staff must be Full and/or Interpreting Members. Core staff is defined as those working for the company – be they owners, directors or employees – who spend most of their time translating, interpreting, proofreading or editing.
Individual membership of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru is key to awarding Recognized Company status. All translators and interpreters employed by the company are expected to be members of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru or working towards membership.
A company wishing to apply for recognition must first of all satisfy a number of criteria and present certain documentary evidence.
