AAITE Statement on the Conflict in Ukraine

March 4, 2022

The American Association of Interpreters and Translators in Education (AAITE) strives to promote the highest standards for interpreting and translation in educational settings, and is an advocate for best-practice conditions across the professions as a whole.  

As such, the Association expresses its support to fellow interpreters and translators in the region risking their lives to bridge the gap between languages and cultures to bring peace and understanding, and to everyone everywhere directly and indirectly affected by the military attack on Ukraine.

AAITE also urges you to help. There is an urgent need from Translators Without Borders. If you speak Ukrainian, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Romanian, Moldovan or German, you can help people fleeing the country get vital information in their language. Complete this form to let TWB know that you can help.

If you would like to take further action, you can also consider supporting other non-profits helping in the region and, if you’re a Russian citizen, you can petition for peace.
