From the CEO: Practitioner videos, NAATI fees & other news

Mark Painting, Chief Executive Officer, NAATIAt its last meeting, the NAATI Board of Directors has approved a program of investment in the capability and capacity of the translating and interpreting sector, of up to $250k per annum. This is a significant new initiative and NAATI looks forward to working with key stakeholders on projects to be funded from this program.

The Board has also approved the 2018/19 budget which includes the schedule of fees and charges. NAATI is pleased to confirm that again, there are to be no increases in any fees. More importantly, the recertification fee has been reduced to $180 (plus GST). The reduction is possible due to higher numbers of practitioners over which the cost is recovered, and the efficiency associated with on-line administration.

Videos

NAATI has also been working on a set of videos that showcase current certified practitioners and how NAATI supports the work of translators and interpreters.

I am very pleased to be able to present the first two of these videos:

NAATI Certification: Why it is important

In 2018, NAATI introduced the Certification system. In this video, currently practising translators and interpreters talk about why they have NAATI certification and what it means.

Transitioning to NAATI Certification

In 2018, NAATI introduced the Certification system. In this video, currently practising translators and interpreters talk about why they have NAATI certification and what it means.

Auslan Productions/VicDeaf are working on two similar videos in Auslan for the Deaf Community.

Chief Executive Officer
