Description

The Advanced Diploma of Translating reflects the skills and knowledge required to translate special purpose texts from one language to another to convey information written using specific terminology for a specific audience.

Job roles

Employment in translating varies with the market for translated material in particular languages and domains. The Advanced Diploma prepares translators to translate texts where there may be significant equivalence problems, the subject of the text has its own specific terminology or where and the need to undertake extensive research and translate complex language and concepts. Specific audiences may be found in commerce and marketing, government and international relations - including immigration, both regular and humanitarian - the media, and sectors generally considered to be professional, such as the law, health and medicine, technology and science. Assignments in these areas can deal with material requiring significant additional quality assurance processes 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 and may be required to provide quality assurance checks on the work of other translators.
