TA represents literary translators in the UK. It was set up in 1958 and provides its members with expert advice and with the means to protect their interests. It is also part of FIT (International Federation of Translators).
The SoA is a trade union for authors representing over 9,500 writers, illustrators and literary translators. We have been advising individuals and speaking out for the profession for more than a century.
A year’s subscription costs less than 15 minutes of a solicitor’s time and all members receive unlimited advice as well as access to a wide range of events and offers, including discounted books and specialist insurance.
Join now to become part of a growing community of authors, campaigning, lobbying and negotiating together to make our voices heard.
