Description

The Diploma of Translating reflects the skills and knowledge required to translate general purpose texts from one language to another to convey information written in plain language to a limited and known audience.

Job roles

Employment in translating varies with the market for translated material in particular languages and domains. The Diploma prepares translators to translate texts where there are limited equivalence problems, plain language and concepts accessible to the general public, and limited requirement for research on the subject beyond client resources. Limited and known audiences may include the clients of community services, educational institutions, community information services and businesses, or may relate to government client relationships. Assignments may involve additional quality assurance to achieve functional equivalence. The majority of translators are self-employed and are contracted either directly or through translation service providers to work on translating assignments. Translators may be contracted to work in a team.
