Translated information about your rights now online

Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission helps people who have been treated unfairly. With this in mind, the Commission has been translating important information into ten languages and simplified English. Now, we are very pleased to share the finished work in a new section on our website.


Australia likes to see itself as a fair country. Unfortunately, sometimes people are treated unfairly because of what they look like, where they come from or what they believe. In Victoria there are laws to protect people from unfair behaviour and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission helps people who have been treated unfairly. Find out about your rights and how we can help you.

We’ve seen in 2020 how important it is to communicate with as much of our community as possible, and that means recognising the incredible diversity of language and culture we are fortunate to have here in Victoria.

With this in mind, the Commission has been translating important information into ten languages and simplified English. Now, we are very pleased to share the finished work in a new section on our website: https://humanrights.vic.gov.au/translationshttps://humanrights.vic.gov.au/translations. 

This content can be accessed at any time by clicking on the ‘Translations’ button at the top of the website (or under the menu on mobile).

The translated information explains what the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission does, the rights that are protected by law in Victoria, and how the Commission can help. It includes instructions on how to contact the us and, if needed, how to use an interpreter service. We have also added our information in Auslan to this section.
The featured languages are:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (simplified and traditional)
  • Hindi
  • Korean
  • Persian
  • Punjabi
  • Somali
  • Urdu
  • Vietnamese
  • Simplified English

We are grateful to the Department of Premier and Cabinet for the funding to do this work. We hope to add more languages in the future.
