ITI members, which I am, are required to act in accordance with the following principles: Honesty and integrity – Professional competence – Client confidentiality and trust – Relationships with other members.
Among the PROFESSIONAL VALUES, members are required (a) to convey the meaning between people and cultures faithfully, accurately and impartially (b) To hold in confidence any privileged and/or confidential information entrusted to us in the course of our work (c) To represent our qualifications, capabilities and responsibilities honestly and to always work within them (d) To enhance those capabilities at every opportunity through continuing education in language, subject field and professional practice (e) To act collegially by sharing knowledge and experience (f) To define in advance by mutual agreement and to abide by the terms of all business transactions among ourselves and with others (g) To ask for and to offer due recognition of our work and compensation commensurate with our abilities. (This does not exclude members providing pro bono work where appropriate.) (h) To endeavour in good faith to resolve amongst ourselves any dispute that arises from our professional interactions.
The relationship with other members remain an important principle on which to bas a professional conduct. Members shall assist each other in every practical way and shall conduct themselves loyally towards their fellow members and the Institute. Members must be respectful to each other and shall not intentionally seek to damage another member’s reputation or business. MEMBERS MUST NOT DELIBERATELY APPROACH ANOTHER MEMBER’S CLIENT WITH A VIEW TO OBTAINING WORK FROM THAT CLIENT.
