Re: American Translators Association
Dear Mr. Mohr:
We represent the American Translators Association ("ATA") and
have been asked to respond to your correspondence on behalf of
Dr. Radovan Pletka. While we disagree with the legal contentions
in your letter, we have been authorized to provide you with the
followings information relevant to the issues you have presented.
Please be advised that the ATA Board of Directors at its recent
meeting voted to expand the Translation Services Directory to include
listings from all Active, Coresponding, and Associate members of ATA.
This decision poses a number of practical difficulties, since it
expands the Directory from some 1400 member listings to approximately
4600, but ATA has undertaken a review of the implementation steps and
expects the Directory to include all such member listings. Although
ATA is not in a position to agree to any dues waiver or abatement,
ATA will take conforming steps to reflect the Board's decision
concerning the Directory in its publications and on-line
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Jefferson C. Glassie
