Course name: Advanced Diploma of Interpreting 


Campus: Brisbane

Description of the Qualification

This qualification covers the competencies required for independent and self-directed work as an interpreting practitioner. It reflects the skills and knowledge required to interpret from a source language to a target language in complex dialogue and monologue settings where the physical elements of the setting or number of parties involved can challenge the capacity of the interpreter to manage the discourse.

Advanced Diploma of Interpreting prepares interpreters for work in all community, business and diplomatic domains, interpreting content that may not easily be predicted or planned for or that may require a high level of subject knowledge, or intense assignment specific preparation.
