This course meets the prerequisite training requirements set by NAATI for anyone wishing to sit for Translator Certification tests. This short course will allow you to complete the training component, and through language specific tutorials, will provide you with preparation strategies for the NAATI Certified Translator Certification test.
Students will complete 4 units which will cover:
- Ethics in Interpreting and Translating
- Preparation for an Interpreting or Translating assignment
- Building glossaries
- Translation techniques
If you already have NAATI Certification in another skill, you will only be required to complete two units:
- Prepare to translate and interpret
- Read and analyse special purpose English texts to be translated
From January 2018, NAATI (National Accredidation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) will implement a new Certification system. In addition to testing changes, NAATI will require that applicants complete a training component before applying for testing. This course will meet the training requirement, prepare candidates for the test and meet the English proficiency requirements.
