To All MiTiN Members:
Language professionals are currently facing considerable uncertainty. Many of us as freelancers do not have paid time off. Disruptions caused by Covid-19 (Corona Virus) may already be adversely affecting our livelihoods. We are faced with balancing the need to provide our services while at the same time taking care of the safety of ourselves and our families.
We advise you to follow the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) guidelines regarding hygiene and travel at: www.michigan.gov/coronavirus or the information by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html
MiTiN encourages you to take this time as an opportunity to hone your skills by taking online courses and/or workshops. ATA offers Webinars for both members and non-members at: https://atanet.org/webinars
Please share with us any information that you may consider crucial for Interpreters and Translators. We are all in this together and we will endure.
MiTiN thanks you for your professionalism. Please stay healthy and calm.
