This course is designed for those who wish to interpret from a source language to a target language, in general dialogue and monologue settings where the interpreter is able to physically control the discourse to assist retention and recall. The interpreting takes place where miscommunication or the consequences of errors in communicative intent can be readily managed through consultation and preparation, and where there are opportunities for error correction.
You will gain basic transfer skills for interpreting in general conversational settings, learn about professional ethics, and improve lanague proficiency. You will develop the skills to conduct transactions, interactions, and negotiations at a functional level.
This program is endorsed by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Students who successfully graduate from this qualification will be eligible to sit the certification test for the NAATI Certified Provisional Interpreter.
