Do you speak a language other than English? Would you like to support your community by helping them access government services and supports all while getting paid? Then a career in interpreting might just be for you!
Interpreters deal with the spoken word or signed languages (such as Auslan). They interpret what each speaker is saying or signing into the other person’s language.
Interpreters are regularly needed to provide in-person, over the phone, and/or video interpreting services across health and legal settings. With Australia’s increasingly diverse and growing migrant communities, interpreters are needed now more than ever to support Australia’s existing and emerging culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
Interpreters need to complete formal training and meet the prerequisite requirements to pass a certification test with National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters Ltd (NAATI). If this sounds like the right path for you, visit NAATI Certification System – NAATI or Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) or check out the flyer below, to find out more.
