An association of English-language editors & translators
Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) is an association of language service providers (LSPs) who work mainly into or with English. Members include both in-house and freelance LSPs, individuals and businesses; they work with institutions, governments, corporations and NGOs as:
editors, revisers and proofreaders
project managers and team leaders
oral and writing coaches
scientific and technical writers
Our members come mainly from the fields of language teaching and linguistics, the basic or biomedical sciences, translation and the social sciences. However, we also have members from the fields of history, philosophy, journalism, art history, finance and law. Indeed, LSPs with any background are welcome.
Many of the founders and early members live in or come from Mediterranean countries and work with Mediterranean languages. Many come from countries where English is the vernacular or were educated in English; others have become highly proficient users of English by various means.
What unites us is a belief in peer-generated continuing professional development, consistent with practice in the disciplines we started from and in the knowledge societies we serve.
MET’s activities are overseen by an elected Council
MET is a member of the VERTICE
