It is a voluntary association, yet its members work in a wide range of professions like Translation, Sworn Translation, Interpreting, Editing & Proofreading, Terminology & Lexicography, Accreditation.
SATI currently counts more than 800 members. They are not an employment agency, however, in the communication with clients they refer members according to their language requirements.
The institute aims to emphasize the importance of effective communication. Remember SATI’s motto: Per interpretes pons conditur – A bridge built by translators.
Besides the financial need and academic results, there are a couple more things to notice before applying for this bursary.

Professional engagements, language combination, and previous SATI awards, will affect decisions while selecting the right applicant.

The first part is 50% of the total amount at the beginning of the year, and the second part.
