Pre-requisitesNo entry requirement for the Preparatory Course. Candidates should refer to NAATI eligibility requirements for the Translator Test []


These workshops are designed to prepare candidates to sit for the NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) Professional Translator (formerly Level 3) Test.

At week 6, students will sit a trial NAATI examination that will be sent to a NAATI examiner for marking during week 7 and 8 (no class). The feedback received will give the student an indication of potential test performance which will be discussed at the last week of the course.
