Do you wish to join Assointerpreti?
You may apply for Trainee, Candidate, or Full Membership.
Apply for Trainee Membership if you have a specific degree and wish to acquire professional experience with the support of our members. Once you have met the specified requirements, you may apply for Candidate Membership. If you have already acquired experience as a conference interpreter and can give evidence of your professional competence and ethical conduct, you may apply for Candidate Membership. At the end of the candidature period, you may apply for Full Membership. If you are already a professional conference interpreter, you can give evidence of your professional competence, and you are already known to the members of one of the Regional Groups of Assointerpreti, you may directly apply for Full Membership. The Regional Groups of Assointerpreti, which have decision-making powers in terms of admissions, will decide on the acceptance or rejection of applications. All new admissions need to be raitified by the General Meeting of Assointerpreti. For more detailed information, contact the Head of the Regional Admissions Committee (see list below) in the region where you wish to designate your professional domicile, and read the following Admission Requirements.

Assointerpreti Mentoring Programme
A mentoring programme for new entrants into the profession.
Assointerpreti has launched an experimental programme for new entrants. The programme has temporarily replaced the Trainee Membership process (which will survive only for those who are already Trainee Members). This free-of-charge programme is designed to make participants in the programme aware of professional standards. Senior members of Assonterpreti, based in various Italian regions, will be available for participants in the programme to provide advice and support in their professional choices, namely on such aspects as working conditions, code of ethics, and relations with clients and colleagues. The goal of this gradual approach to Assointerpreti is to make participants reach such a level as to permit them to apply for Candidate Membership. Applications may be submitted at any time of the year. For additional information, contact the Head of the Regional Admissions Committee of your region or, if there is no such person, the members of the region where you wish to designate your professional domicile.
