What are NAATI accreditation and recognition?

NAATI, the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, is the organization responsible for accrediting and recognizing language professionals in Australia. NAATI accreditation is a process by which language professionals demonstrate their skills and knowledge in translating and interpreting, and their ability to work effectively in multicultural settings. There are different levels of accreditation offered by NAATI, including for professional translators, professional interpreters, and paraprofessional translators and interpreters.

NAATI recognition is a process by which individuals who have not completed formal training in translation or interpreting, but who have acquired the necessary skills and knowledge through other means, such as work experience or self-study, can demonstrate their competence and be recognized as a translator or interpreter.

Holding a NAATI accreditation is widely recognized as a standard of excellence in the field of interpreting and translating. It's an important benchmark for clients and employers when hiring language professionals, and it can open up more job opportunities, higher pay, and professional recognition.
