The Certification System

NAATI’s Certification System has been designed to evaluate if a candidate demonstrates the skills needed to practice as a translator or interpreter in Australia. Certification gives assurance to people who engage interpreters or translators, that English and non-English speakers can interact effectively with each other.

Why Get Certified?

NAATI certification permits translators and interpreters to quickly and easily demonstrate to clients and agencies their ability.

Many employers and service providers will expect practitioners to have certification – it is difficult to get translating and interpreting work without it.

How Does the Certification System Work?

Certification places more emphasis on education, training, and ongoing professional development. The Certification System has been designed after considering the knowledge, skills and attributes identified as necessary for professional practice.
