Recertification is the process by which translators and interpreters with NAATI certification demonstrate that they remain active and committed to the translation and interpreting industry at regular intervals.
Before the expiry date, practitioners are required to provide evidence of continuing work practice and professional development to recertify the certification for a further three years.
In order to be recertified, you will need to demonstrate you have achieved:
You should still lodge an application with as much detail as possible about the work practice and professional development you completed during the three-year recertification cycle.
Consideration will also be given on a case-by-case basis if:
A year’s extension may be provided for a practitioner to meet the recertification requirements, one year pro-rata, in circumstances where not enough work or professional development has been undertaken during the recertification cycle. Extensions cannot be granted unless an application is lodged with us.
If a practitioner does not apply for recertification or does not meet the recertification criteria, the certification will expire.
