What counts as CPD?

ITI does not provide a list of ‘approved’ CPD activities, and many different options are available, many of which can be pursued online, without even leaving your desk.

Nevertheless, the following activities are recommended: 

  • Courses and conferences organised by ITI, its Networks or Regional Groups 
  • In-house training for staff translators Visits to specialist libraries, technical installations. 
  • Reading specialist publications, learned journals and other literature in your specialist subject(s) 
  • Attending conferences, lectures, webinars or workshops organised by other professional bodies, in your area of specialisation (medical, legal, technical etc.) 
  • Courses organised by universities, including distance-learning courses; adult education classes organised by local authorities or other training providers 
  • On-line tutorials and e-learning 
  • Research work, e.g. MA thesis 
  • Preparing and delivering lectures, presentations, seminars or workshops. 
  • Writing articles, dictionary or website reviews. 
  • Committee work in ITI or other professional bodies. 

There are six key areas in which translators and interpreters might pursue CPD:

Language Skills | Translation Skills | Interpreting Skills | Subject Knowledge | Business Skills | Professional Contribution
