Welcome to HITA!

The Houston Translators and Interpreters Association (HITA) was established in 1993 to create a forum for individuals, businesses and institutions interested in sharing their experiences, to promote the interests of translators and interpreters in Houston and surrounding areas, and to serve in cooperation with other regional and national organizations in the recognition of translation and interpreting as professions.


Updates

Visitors seeking translators and interpreters:

Starting on January 19 this year, when a visitor to the HITA web site used the search feature to find interpreters and translators, not all our members were displayed in the search results. The problem was not identified until June 7 and fixed on June 16. Our apologies to all of those who were affected.
