Translorial strives to bring interesting and helpful information to the translator and interpreter community in Northern California and beyond. We welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve on our concept. Send your ideas and/or comments to the editor. If you are asked to write an article for the journal, and are an ATA-certified translator, you'll not only gain exposure, but you'll also earn points to help maintain your certification. Translorial Submission Guidelines


Translorial is the journal of the Northern California Translators Association, now published in January, May, and September. We generally try to have the journal in subscribers' hands approximately two weeks before the association's general meetings of May and September and a month before the annual meeting and elections of February. All meetings are held on a Saturday in these respective months.

This page comes as a complement to the journal and here you can find background information about our contributors, article submission procedures, the latest issue’s cover, help on how to obtain a PDF file of the current issue, current advertising rates/order form.
