The SFT (Société française des traducteurs) was founded in 1947 to defend the interests of translators and the translation profession and is a founding member of the International Federation of Translators (FIT), a Category A UNESCO organization.
The SFT today counts more than 1,300 members, making it the largest professional translators’ union in France. The diversity of the SFT’s membership—which includes in-house and self-employed language service providers as well as literary translators—reflects the broad range of activities found in today’s global translation market.
The role of the SFT is to serve as a single point of contact for language service providers of all categories, the users of language services and government agencies.
This English version of the SFT website includes key features of the main version (in French).
