2021 was another strong year for the Consultant Interpreters Group of  AIIC - The International Association of Conference Interpreters. Our members, both individual members and groups of interpreters, had already adapted to the new technologies and platforms available to our profession in 2020, and further improved their skills and competencies in 2021, closing the year with numbers outperforming those in the pre-pandemic period.
We are grateful to our colleagues and clients for their trust in us.
