Description

This qualification covers the competencies required to interpret from a source language to a target language, in general dialogue and monologue settings where the interpreter is able to physically control the discourse to assist retention and recall.

In a general setting the context is usually broad and routine, the content or complexity of the situation can usually be predicted and planned for. There are typically two or a few participants, to whom the interpreter has physical and visual access.

The Diploma of Interpreting prepares interpreters for work typically in the community and business domains, including sectors such as general health, welfare and community services, educational and social contexts, and tourism. As well as interactions such as initial police interviews, over the counter interviews in customer and community information services, non-complex disability assistance, and other informal business and workplace interactions. The interpreting takes place where miscommunication or the consequences of errors in communicative intent can be readily managed through consultation and preparation, and where there are opportunities for error correction.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
