This is the very first post of the Nigerian Institute of Translators And Interpreters (NITI) blog, which, very appropriately, is embedded in our brand new website. NITI has come a long way. From our humble beginnings as the Nigerian Association of Translators And Interpreters (NATI), the institute has worked hard over the years, thanks to our indefatigable National President, who has single-handedly championed this cause. His years of hard work bore fruit recently when, on the 8th May, 2008, the second Reading of this institute's proposed Bill took place at the National Assembly and, hopefully, NITI will become a Chartered Institute in not too distant a future. When that happens, it will definitely be live on The NITI Blog.
