The Croatian Society of Conference Interpreters (HDKP) was founded in 1974 as the Society of Simultaneous and Consecutive Interpreters of Croatia, with the aim of promoting conference interpreting and the interpreting profession. All members of the Croatian Society of Conference Interpreters are experienced interpreters who abide by the Society’s professional standards and code of ethics and whose work meets the highest quality standards.

Members of HDKP are also members of international societies of interpreters, notably the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC), and thus they also respect their codes of professional ethics.

The Society endeavours to:

  • promote conference interpreting
  • develop simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, and
  • assist in organizing the work of conference interpreters.
