Translations by government organisations

The Western Australian government requires that all translations of government or related agency documents must be carried out by a human NAATI credentialed translator who can provide a high-quality translation which meets stringent government standards. Using online machine translation tools is not recommended as they rarely provide a fully accurate translation.

Document translations and face to face interpreting

If you require a translation of a personal or business document into English from another language, or even from English into another language there are translation services spread throughout Perth that can provide this service. You could choose Aussie Translations for your document translations if you prefer as it provides a NAATI certified translator service. It offers free quotes online and you can send your translation requirements by email. It also offers urgent translations of your documents if required. The same applies to its interpreting service.

Aussie Translations offers a high-quality translation and interpreting service to agencies throughout Perth. To operate in Perth, it must follow the requirements implemented by the West Australian government, which include the following:

    • ensuring their safety
    • offering constructive feedback

    • always proactive in communication
    • transparency and fairness for job allocation.

Interpreting is available in Perth, either directly through Aussie Translations, or through the Western Australian Institute of Translators and Interpreters, who provides professionals in most languages including First Nation languages like Walmajarri and Tigrinya. These services only provide NAATI credentialed interpreters and translators to undertake translation work in government departments and agencies such as in health, education and social services. Most people or agencies requiring a translator or interpreter prefer to use a human translator because they are still far more accurate than any online machine translating tool. It is important that the correct language is used in any translation or interpreting situation such as:

  • use of the right cultural language that suits a speaker of that language;
  • understanding the variation in language and dialect between the pair of languages;
  • providing the true meaning of a text after a translation and not just a less accurate word to word translation or interpreting;
  • considering the linguistic preferences of a language group.

Aussie Translations have skilled NAATI translators and interpreters who recognise the cultural differences between a Spanish speaker from Spain and one from Colombia.

There is always the possibility of litigation against a government agency or other translation provider if the translation or interpreting is not accurate. That is why most government departments, agencies and even businesses prefer a NAATI credentialed translator or interpreter particularly if there is a possibility misinformation could be conveyed if the translation or interpreting is not accurate.

  • training and education information;
  • health information such as guidelines for flu vaccinations and Covid-19
