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.
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) can be a cost-effective, quick and easy way of providing interpreting services. However, it can be quite a challenging mode of delivery for practitioners due to technical issues and its complex and cognitively demanding nature.
This course will explore Video Remote Interpreting through the perspective of all participants i.e., Service Providers, Interpreters and CaLD clients, and aim to teach learners how to employ certain strategies when they are faced with challenges and dilemmas. The course will also show learners how to use various Video Interpreting platforms through instructional videos.
