Interview with Aurora Humarán, chairwoman of AIPTI

Hello and welcome to my first ever Sunday interview podcast. Expect this to be a regular, indeed weekly,  feature on my blog. Today?s Sunday interview is with Aurora Humarán (@AMHumaran) , the owner of the Aleph translation agency in Buenos Aires and since September 30 this year also founding chairwoman of the AIPTI – a new association for translators and interpreters.

How the new association is coming along; 
Why she decided she needed to create a new association; Why it wasn?t enough to just continue with her popular NdT internet forums; What the ethical basis for the AIPTI is; How she sees the AIPTI as being different from existing translation associations such as the American Translators’ Association or the Insitutute of Translation and Interpreting; How she managed to convince such illustrious linguists as Noam Chomsky and Valentín García Yebra to become honorary members; What she thinks about globalisation, big translation agencies and trends in the translation world;
