Founded in 2014, the Lithuanian Association of Conference Interpreters (LKVA in Lithuanian) is a pool of professional conference interpreters who are committed to the highest standards of profesional interpreting and who care deeply about ensuring suitable working conditions, protecting our professional rights and defending the interests of interpreters. The Association plays an important role to this end by representing interpreters in state institutions and international organisations and establishing contacts with affiliate organisations. The Association was specifically founded with the intention of raising awareness of the profession of conference interpreters among the public and our clients, and generally raising the profile of our profession. Our ultimate goal is for interpreting to become a legally regulated profession in Lithuania so that our unique and highly demanding work is on a par with international practice.
The core values of the Lithuanian Association of Conference Interpreters are: professionalism, integrity and responsibility.
