Mid-America Chapter of the American Translators Association

Welcome to MICATA!

The Mid-America Chapter of the

American Translators Association (MICATA)


With members located throughout the U.S. Midwest and around the world, MICATA represents translators and interpreters of languages from Arabic to Vietnamese. MICATA aims to provide a forum for translation, interpreting and other language professionals to share ideas and expertise and keep our professional members informed and up to date through our events. Another critical element of our work is to convey the importance of using professional translators and interpreters to the public.


MICATA is proud to be one of the oldest chapters of the American Translators Association (www.ATAnet.org). Our organization is run entirely by volunteers. Please visit the About Us page to learn more about MICATA, our mission, policies and Board of Directors.

Are you looking for a translator or interpreter? Please visit our Membership Directory where you can search by language and location. Our FAQs page answers a number of important questions including how to tell if you need a translator or an interpreter. We hope you enjoy browsing our site.


We are looking forward to another productive year and will continue our efforts to raise awareness of our profession and provide educational events to our members and the public.
