Become a NAATI Certified Interpreter and/or Translator

NAATI certified

NAATI, or the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, serves as the national standards and certifying body for professionals in the fields of translation and interpretation. Holding NAATI certification or recognition indicates that you meet the community’s expectations for translators and interpreters.

The development of the NAATI Certification System involved extensive research and consultations to identify the knowledge, skills, and attributes essential for success in the translation and interpretation roles. This comprehensive approach ensures that certified professionals are equipped to deliver high-quality language services.

NAATI Certification Process: The path to NAATI certification is structured around three fundamental pillars, which vary depending on the specific credential you are seeking:

Before applying for NAATI certification, you must undergo formal training in interpreting or translation. Additionally, you need to satisfy prerequisites, which include demonstrating proficiency in English, ethical competence, and intercultural competency. These requirements differ based on the credential you are pursuing. Visit the NAATI website for more information and a full list of NAATI Endorsed Qualifications and courses: https://www.naati.com.au/certification/prerequisites-training/

The certification process involves either passing a certification test conducted by NAATI or demonstrating your work practice, depending on the specific credential you are aiming for.

All NAATI credentials have a three-year validity. To maintain your certification beyond this period, you must undergo recertification by demonstrating that you are actively maintaining your language skills and work practice through continuous professional development. This process assures the community that only active professionals who meet NAATI’s standards hold NAATI credentials.

By understanding the NAATI Certification System and following these three pillars, you can embark on your journey to becoming a certified and highly regarded professional translator or interpreter in Australia.
