New training films for interpreters and translators
ARDS recently produced a set of training films for the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Filmed in and around Nhulunbuy, the films illustrate some of the ethical principles of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT) Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct for translators and interpreters.
Working with Mulka, a local Aboriginal-owned media organisation, and Yolŋu producer Rosie Grimes, we produced films illustrating challenging interpreting situations involving everything from less than professional service providers to inquiring relatives of clients.
The end results look great and NAATI have already used them in training workshops with Aboriginal interpreters.
