NAATI

What is NAATI?

National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) is a standards organisation responsible for setting, maintaining and promoting high professional standards that issues accreditations for practitioners who wish to work as translators and interpreters in Australia.  Without the accreditation, aspiring translators and interpreters would find it difficult to obtain jobs as employers would expect it as proof of skills and abilities.

Why Study Translating and Interpreting?

If you have the passion for languages, you are able to fuel your hunger and fulfil your desire in doing translating and interpreting whilst providing community service and contribution.

In the 2011 Australian Bureau of Statistics Census, almost 4 million Australians speak a language other an English at home.  Translating and Interpreting services are required in schools, offices, banks, law offices, in the immigration.

Why do you need accreditation?

NAATI accreditation permits translator and interpreters to quickly and easily demonstrate their level of skills and ability which employer expected as a proof. An accreditation would also earn 5 bonus points, under Credentialed Community Language (CCL) points at the Paraprofessional level or above, which can be claimed for migration purpose.

How to ensure excellent satisfactory results in NAATI exams for accreditation?

The passing rate in the NAATI exam yearly is only 10%-15%.  Alarming low number is attributed to many factors.  The exam is not eyes which is a given.  NAATI have the responsibility to ensure that accredited practitioners have the skills in interpreting and translating that meet the needs of Australian.  Many candidates will have to sit in the exam more than once to succeed and some never pass. 

However, a much common factor in failing the exam is the lack of preparedness.  As in any exam, preparation is the key.  It is recommended to enrol for NAATI-Approved Australia Course offered by approved university / institution.  Universities will prepare students through guided and methodical teaching approach by experienced and mostly by NAATI accredited professionals, who have years of teaching experience and vast practical industry knowledge.
