Insurance Program for ATA Members

Protect Your Business with Professional Liability Insurance

In the translators and interpreters industry, even a small oversight or error can carry disastrous circumstances. When mistakes happen, you can be held responsible for damages incurred by your client, leading to a slew of potentially staggering legal costs. Allow us to offer peace of mind.

The member-exclusive, ATA-endorsed Professional Liability Insurance Program protects you against claims-related errors, omissions, and/or negligence arising from your professional services. This comprehensive solution commonly known as errors and omissions liability insurance (E&O) covers defense costs and settlements and provides a valuable layer of additional coverage that includes:

  • Broad definition of translation/interpreting services – Covers nearly all activities relevant to a translator or interpreter such as editing, publishing and proofreading. Third party losses due to mechanical equipment breakdown are also considered under this policy.


  • Coverage for contingent bodily injury and/or property damage – Covers errors in rendering translation/interpreting services that result in bodily injury and/or property damage. These types of claims are typically excluded by generic professional liability policies.


  • Coverage for cyber liability including HIPAA/HITECH breaches – Covers breaches related to your employees’ rendering of professional services in violation or breach of the HIPAA/HITECH Act.
