While translation is all about written documents, interpreting deals within live settings. Interpretation is the real-time oral translation of spoken language from one language into another.
Aussie Translations has an excellent panel of NAATI-accredited interpreters in Australia, and is able to support individuals, businesses, and government authorities in all capital cities and in many regional areas, in a broad range of languages.

Types of interpreting services
There are several types of interpreting, all of which Aussie Translations can offer:
- In phone interpreting, the interpreter speaks with the parties in a group call setting. This can be done via traditional phones, Skype, WhatsApp, etc.
- In conference interpreting, an Aussie Translations interpreter translates spoken language at meetings or conferences to facilitate communication between participants. This can be done simultaneously or consecutively.
- In judicial interpreting, the interpreter facilitates communication in a legal setting. A common scenario is an assignment in a court room to translate a witness’ statement, or at a police station.
- In escort interpreting, the interpreter travels together with the client (tour, meeting, visit, interview, etc.), either domestically or internationally. We do this mainly for large corporations or government delegations.
- In community interpreting, the linguist supports an Australian government authority to communicate with CALD communities. Examples include information sessions on housing, infrastructure, and elections.
- In medical interpreting, communication between a healthcare practitioner and a patient is facilitated. This usually takes place in hospitals or clinics.
- Sign language interpreting (AUSLAN) supports communication between spoken English and sign language for those hard of hearing.
- In media interpreting, the interpreter supports live TV coverages.
Costs of interpreting
Interpreting is a professional service, and is billed by the hour. The hourly rate of the professional depends on a broad range of factors, including
- the languages involved;
- the location of the assignment;
- the location of the interpreter;
- the type of interpreting;
- the amount of preparation required.
As is the case for all our services, we strike a good balance between offering a high-end service for demanding clients, while also offering excellent value thanks to our efficient operations and processes – savings we can pass on to you without compromising quality.
How to book

We have found that a quick chat with one of our project managers about your needs helps us to find a much more suitable interpreter for you than just picking a random one. So don’t hesitate, and contact us now – it will be worth your while.
