New Course Release
Translating & Interpreting in Healthcare Settings – Bundle
There is no better way to establish competencies as a professional translator or interpreter in the healthcare sector than this bundle of on-demand courses. As the industry moves towards more nuanced and specialised testing of capabilities, you will find the skill developed in these courses immensely valuable, both in preparing for NAATI tests, and also for working within the healthcare sector. We consider this a useful bundle for practitioners regardless of their level of certification, and in fact recommend this for those practising below the “Certified Translator” or “Certified Interpreter” level, especially practitioners who are new to the industry, new to the country, or are providing services in an emerging language.
Introduction to Translation Technology
CAT, TenT, MT, MT-PE, … You have read and heard about these acronyms but are not sure what they mean? You have had conversations about translation technology, maybe have tried some tools for yourself but could not find the right one for you. Translation technology is a must-have for any T&I practitioner these days, but it can be overwhelming to find the tools that are right for you. Join us to find out what is available on the market and get an idea of what these new technologies can really bring to your daily work.
The Nervous System (T&I in Healthcare Settings)
Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. Neurological disorders are disorders of the brain and nervous system, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and acquired brain injury. Almost one in six people worldwide have a neurological disorder (WHO 2006).
Ear, Nose and Throat (T&I in Healthcare Settings)
Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) is a medical specialty that is focused on the ears, nose, and throat. It is also called otolaryngology-head and neck surgery as the specialists are trained to treat patients with disorders and diseases of the ears, nose, throat, and other structures of the neck and face.
Ophthalmology (T&I in Healthcare Settings)
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the eye. Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a near or distant vision impairment. In at least 1 billion – or almost half – of these cases, vision impairment could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. (WHO 2020)
Ethics and Professionalism for Interpreters and Translators
This online course aims to help learners develop a comprehensive knowledge of the translators’ and interpreters’ professional code of ethics. In Australia, NAATI certified translators and interpreters should comply with the AUSIT Code of Ethics as part of their ongoing certification. AUSIT (Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators) is the national professional association of translators and interpreters in Australia. This online course will concentrate on developing learners’ knowledge and application of the AUSIT Code of Ethics in their translating and interpreting assignments. Learners will gain knowledge of the ethical requirements for translators and interpreters in Australia. This course is composed of video narrated presentations, quizzes and instructional videos to establish best practice when practitioners are met with ethical challenges in the translating and interpreting context.

Learning Medical Terminology can seem like a daunting task at first. It could, in fact, be like learning a whole other language. In reality, memorising all of the words in a medical dictionary may prove to be impossible.
