The National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators' mission is to promote quality services in the field of legal interpreting and translating. Our members play a critical role in ensuring due process, equal protection and equal access for non-English or limited English proficient (LEP) individuals who interact with the judicial system.

As of 2011, membership in the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators totals over 1200 professionals , and includes practicing spoken language judiciary interpreters and translators, as well as those who interpret or translate in other settings, judges, Ph.D. linguists, educators, researchers, students, administrators, and managers of non-profit community language bureaus and for-profit language agencies. NAJIT boasts a growing number of interpreters who work between English and American Sign Language (ASL). While most of our membership resides in the U.S, some members live and work in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Anyone with an interest in the field of judiciary interpreting and translating or who shares NAJIT's interests and objectives is welcome to join.
