Association

AMTA is the North American component of the International Association for Machine Translation (IAMT), which also includes the Asian-Pacific Association for Machine Translation (AAMT) and the European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT). The IAMT Council comprises a balanced representation of all  regions. Members of any of the three regional associations automatically become part of the IAMT network. AMTA is governed by the by-laws codified in this document.

AMTA was founded in 1991 as a part of the International Association for Machine Translation, along with the AAMT and the EAMT.
