What is a NAATI exam and is it really useful for Australian PR. How do I know if it is relevant to my field?

NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) is the organization responsible for accrediting language professionals in Australia. A NAATI exam is a test designed to evaluate an individual's proficiency in a specific language and their ability to translate and interpret effectively.

NAATI accreditation is recognized by the Australian government as the standard for language professionals in the country. It is often required for certain types of jobs, such as interpreting in the legal system or translating documents for immigration purposes. For those seeking Australian Permanent Residency, it may be useful as NAATI accreditation can be included as points in the point-based system for visa applications.

It's important to note that NAATI accreditation may not be relevant to all fields, and it's important to check the specific requirements of your field. For example, while NAATI accreditation may be required for interpreters working in the legal system, it may not be necessary for interpreters working in other industries.

It's important to check the NAATI website or contact them to find out if NAATI accreditation is relevant to your field and to have a clear understanding of the requirements and benefits of the accreditation. You can also check with relevant professional organizations or your employer to find out if NAATI accreditation is a requirement or beneficial for your field.
