Translorial.com, the online journal of the Northern California Translators Association, enthusiastically encourages members and non-members alike to submit articles of interest to translators and interpreters. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):
- business practices
- current events related to the language services industry
If you are an ATA member, your contribution to Translorial.com will earn you continuing education credits (see category C on the ATA recertification form). As all articles are publicly visible, your writing will reach an audience beyond the NCTA.
Translorial Submission Guidelines
- Article content must be original—it should not have been published before.
- Articles must be written in English. Translated articles are welcome; in this case, please submit a headshot and bio for both the original author and the translator.
- Please aim for a word count of 1600–2500 words.
- Please avoid subjects that are controversial because of political or religious implications.
- All articles are subject to editing for grammar, style, and space limitations. Translorial.com follows the Chicago Manual of Style.
- You will be notified if the editors need to make major changes to the wording or structure of the submitted article; minor edits will be made silently.
Please note that the Translorial.com Committee has the final decision about whether to publish the article on Translorial.com.
