Translation companies and students can become Affiliates of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru.

Recognized Company

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.

Student Affiliate

Through its Student Affiliate category, Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru aims to encourage and support students who wish to pursue a career in the profession. Student Affiliates will benefit from access to networks and sources of advice and also some of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru's activities, including its workshops and examinations at a reduced rate. Student Affiliates are not members of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru and won't be charged a membership fee.

Recognition as a Student Affiliate is available to:

  • anyone following a translation or interpreting course leading to a post-graduate qualification, either through full-time or part-time study.
  • anyone following a degree course in translation or interpreting (single or joint honours), or a translation module – level 5 or level 6, and is interested in pursuing a career as a translator/interpreter.

The application form and information are only available in Welsh
