FIT (the Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs/International Federation of Translators) is an international grouping of associations of translators, interpreters and terminologists. More than 100 professional associations are affiliated, representing over 80 000 translators in 55 countries. The goal of the Federation is to promote professionalism in the disciplines it represents.

The anniversary celebrations will culminate at FIT’s 20th World Congress in Berlin in August 4-6, 2014.

Every three years, FIT invites the industry to an international congress. Following successful events in Shanghai in 2008 and San Francisco in 2011, Germany’s Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ – Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer e. V.) is delighted to be hosting the professional world in Berlin as the organiser of the XXth FIT World Congress, scheduled for 4th August 2014.

Around the theme

Man vs. Machine?
The Future of Translators, Interpreters and Terminologists

talks, panel discussions and workshops – as well as a trade fair, networking platform and jobs exchange – will bring together agents, agencies, university teachers, software tool providers, students and professional translators, interpreters and terminologists from across the world.

We are happy to announce that EU Commissioner Mrs. Androulla Vassiliou becomes patron of the World Congress.

During April 21-22, 1998, Mr. Roberto Hung’s tracheostomy was dislodged when the Certified Nurse’s Assistant (Carol) turned him suddenly and forcefully on the Hill-Rom bed at the Lombard home, after washing him early in the morning. CNA Carol was harried and rushed when she knocked hard on the door, making loud noises around 7:30 a.m. on that day after she drove from Bolingbrook, Illinois USA …Carol was so loud that she woke me up, since the regular CNA Jennifer had changed her daily schedule for Roberto Hung in Lombard and did not come into Lombard from Woodridge, Illinois. CNA Carol was ornery and sounded irritated when she flipped Roberto Hung who was thin and underweight over on the Hill-Rom bed, too fast. The bedridden patient, Roberto Hung moaned and looked frazzled. I was watching CNA Carol wash my Father quickly until the telephone downstairs rang and I went answer the early morning call. The Certified Nurse’s Assistant Carol worked for a Home Physicians Service related to Dr. Thomas Cornwell, M.D., Nurse Nancy Minch R.N. and CNA Jennifer who were regular home care medical staff for Mr. Roberto Hung who had become a Lombard disabled and bedridden Traumatic Brain Injury patient as a resident homeowner, taxpayer in District 5, one block from St. Pius X Catholic Church and School in York Township, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

The tracheostomy tube had been inserted during December 1996 at Good Samaritan Advocate Hospital in Downers Grove, DuPage County, Illinois while the patient Roberto Hung was in a deep coma following a blunt hit to the head he suffered during a Lombard home invasion on the eve of the winter solstice, December 21-22, around Hannukah and Christmas in 1996. The traumatic brain injury with the aneurysm and stroke disabled and unemployed the Lombard resident homeowner that day at the age of 65 years old at home in District 5, one block north from Westmore Elementary School and the Deicke Home for the Retarded, 1005 W. Division Street in Lilac Town, DuPage County, Illinois USA.

When Roberto Hung started to turn blue in bed for lack of oxygen from the occlusion of the tracheostomy, I rushed to call Emergency 911 for the Lombard Emergency Medical Services, the Paramedics at the Fire Department and Police in DuPage County who arrived later and drove my Father to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital since the Village of Lombard did not have a hospital for resident homeowners and taxpayers in 1998.

Greetings during August 9, 2012. My name is Gardenia C. Hung (Wittler), a Lombard resident homeowner, U.S. citizen, and Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes and Violence Against Women since 1994, after purchasing Lombard real estate property at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard where I established professional business communications services for legal, medical, and technical interpreting and translation services for a privately owned company under sole proprietorship called Communications, Languages&Culture;, Inc. I have been a professional member of the Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters Association (CHICATA), the American Translators Association ATA, and the Federation International Translators (FIT-IFT). For the record, I, Mrs. Gardenia C. Hung (Wittler) have been a Certified Legal/Medical Interpreter and Translator for the Federation of International Translators, the American Translators Association, the Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters Association, as a Lombard resident homeowner and Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes during the course of employment for Interlate Systems, Inc. in Aurora and Elgin and Palencia Language Services where I worked and was kidnapped at a parking lot and injured as a legal interpreter and translator for the State of Illinois Industrial Commission Office of Workman’s Compensation Arbitration, the National Labor Relations Board, the City of Chicago, and other cities and municipalities in Cook County, Wheaton, Du Page County, St. Charles and Aurora, Kane County, Waukegan, Lake County, Crystal Lake, Will County, McHenry County, DeKalb, Grundy County, LaSalle County in Illinois, including other professional associations for the Spanish, Portuguese, and French Language Divisions. During 1990, I worked as a Certified Legal Interpreter and Translator for Diplomatic Languages Services (DLS) in care of Elizabeth Degnan, Director at DLS at that time, whose office was located at 1111 North 19th Street, Suite 525, Arlington Virginia 22209, Telephone: +1 (703) 243-4855. Twenty-two years later, Diplomatic Language Services DC has relocated to 1901 Fort Myer Drive #600, 6th Floor, in Arlington, Virginia 22209-1604 USA. When I interpreted and translated for Diplomatic Language Services (DLS) and Elizabeth Degnan in 1990, I was assigned to the Everett McKinley Dirksen Federal Building, 219 South Dearborn St. in Chicago, at the Federal Bureau of Investigation office which used to be there under a Special Agent in Charge for Chicago telephone wiring operations involving other special agents for ATF, CIA, and the Chicago Police Department, a retired Hispanic policeman called Pablo, investigating suspicious operations in Steger, Momence, and Mokena, Illinois, including border patrol agents from Brownsville, Texas, and Broadview, Illinois. There were six (6) Special Agents in Charge Polish, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Texan, and two (2) interpreters to log-in telephone wiring activities for Chicago, Steger, Momence, and Mokena, Illinois. In addition, I worked with Elizabeth Degnan at DLS transcribing Spanish cassette tape recordings into English which were mailed and faxed upon completion. After I worked as a certified interpreter and translator for Diplomatic Language Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Chicago at the Dirksen Federal Building, I became a Lombard Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes, kidnappings after midnight, burglaries, automobile accidents, flat tires and towing services, stolen Geo Tracker SUV at the College of Du Page Police Academy Parking Lot, Forced Hospitalizations by the Lombard Police Department, Physical Abuse and Family Abuse, Telephone Hang-ups, Harassment, Attempts To Kill Me During Sleeping Hours, Forced Injections on the Right Side of My Neck, Legs, Broke Right Toe, Fractured Hammertoe, A Bullet Hole on the Front Side Window at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road, Heinous Hate Crimes in Lombard, District 5, York Township, in the County of Du Page, Illinois 60148-3028 USA. I have been severely abused and physically injured as a Lombard Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes after I worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Diplomatic Language Services doing certified interpreting and translation assignments on-site. The Lombard Police Department under Chief Kuntz, Chief Van Dillerkoffer, Chief George Graves, Ray Byrne, Dane Cuny, and other Lombard police staff have personally caused me a lot of harassment and physical abuse, burglaries, unauthorized access to my private Lombard home and business resources for Communications, Languages&Culture, Inc., and my family real estate assets. I have been victimized for the last twenty-one (21) years as an Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes seeking justice, fairness, and compensation for criminal damages and losses, personal injury from a broken pigeon right toe stumped by a Lombard Policeman, kidnappings, physical abuse, sexual assault at home and by force in Du Page County, torture, harassment, theft, burglary, robbery, stealing by local thieves allowed by the Lombard Police and Fire Department and persecution, to include several automobile accidents as an individual and citizen of the United States of America in the Village of Lombard, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois. In addition, I have been victimized by heinous hate crimes, real estate property roofing water damages and losses, homelessness in Du Page County. Also, the Lombard Police and Fire Department have taken my personal U.S. Naturalization documents, personal family documents, and business resources after Keith Steiskal from the Lombard Fire Department, Lombard Police and other intruders trespassed into private property stored in the garage at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road, Lombard, Illinois 60148-3028 USA. In addition, U.S. Cellular has been intercepting, blocking, and interrupting wireless mobile telephone and internet network services during the year 2011-2012 while removing essential Contacts information, overbilling and overcharging for Carnival Cruise Mobile Marketing from the Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, and Puerto Rico from operatives and predatory cybercriminals. While I have been legally married to Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin), I have suffered from several kidnappings, physical abuse, sexual assault, torture by burning with fire on my finger tips over a flame and also by injection to my neck and body while I was sleeping in the Master Bedroom at home, 502 S.

Illinois Victims of Heinous Hate Crimes, Violence Against Women http://www.gardeniac.typepad.com/ Anniversary For A Translator and Interpreter in 2012


Thirty years ago I completed five (5) years of college studies at Northeastern Illinois University in December 1982 at 5500 North St. Louis Avenue and Bryn Mawr Avenue in Chicago. Unlike others, I spent another extra year in college for additional certification for Secondary Education in Illinois with Linguistics Studies in courses taught by Professor Tom Richardson, Ph.D., English, Spanish, French, Communications, Journalism, Athletics, Dance, High Honors in English, Spanish, and French. NEIU graduation in December 1982 opened the door to employment opportunities in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

In 1983 college graduates could apply for jobs posted on Chicago local newspapers and get hired.

Since I was used to working several jobs to pay for NEIU college studies and attended a Catholic private high school on the Northwest side of Chicago, I was able to pay for my own studio apartment where my Father lived, owned by Mrs. A. C. Nylen, a German-American Realtor and developer. In addition, I also helped to pay for family expenses, travel, and personal expenses after I got a teaching job at Holy Cross High School owned by the Christian Brothers and known today as a College Preparatory Academy in River Grove, Illinois USA.

In 1983, Trans-Lingual Inc. was teaching languages and providing translation and interpretings services as a company located at 8 South Michigan Avenue where Maureen worked downtown by the ‘L’ elevated Loop train stations. I worked for Trans-Lingual, Inc. teaching languages and culture to professional business associates in English, Spanish, French, as well as translating and interpreting for assignments Maureen provided since we knew each other as Northeastern Illinois University classmates and alumni.

Simultaneously, three decades ago, I started working for Groupe Europén S.A., also known as GESA Assistance, 24 hours, 7 days a week travel emergency insurance service on the third floor at 150 South Wacker Drive which used to be the Hartford Building by the Chicago River, in the South Loop by Union Station. At GESA Assistance, I was working as a Customer Service/Emergency Medical Dispatcher in the Midwest for European travellers, South Americans, Asians, and some people from Johannesburg, South Africa and other countries in the same continent.

During Spring 1983, I also enrolled for a Graduate School Fellowship offered by the President Abraham Lincoln Foundation at the University of Illinois Chicago which included Communication & Theatre Studies under Anthony Graham-White Ph.D., who used to be Department Chairman at UIC during the 1980’s. I continued Graduate School Studies with Rhetorical Criticism, Ethnography, Theatre, Japanese, Portuguese, and Medical Communications for Emergency Room Senior Patients at the University of Illinois Medical Center. In addition, Anthony Graham-White assigned for me to do Graduate Research Assistance for the Chinese-American Service League (CASL) managed and directed by Bernie Wong in Chinatown, Chicago, Illinois USA. At that time, I began to do a Master of Arts Thesis about the Chinese in Cuba, an Ethnography of a Chinese-Cuban Family: Assimilation and Acculturation in Cuba.
