Level of Translation

  •   Levels of translation

• Advanced Translator (Senior) (formerly known as Level 5): This is the highest level of NAATI translating accreditation. It reflects a level of excellence in specialised translating, recognised through demonstrated extensive experience and international leadership. It encompasses and builds on the competencies of Advanced Translator accreditation.

• Advanced Translator (formerly known as Level 4): This represents the level of competence required to handle complex, technical and sophisticated translations in line with recognised international practice. Advanced Translators operate in diverse situations, and may choose to specialise in a particular area(s), including translating technical manuals, research papers, providing translations for conferences, high-level negotiations and court proceedings.

• Professional Translator (formerly known as Level 3): This represents the minimum level of competence for professional translating and is the minimum level recommended by NAATI for work in settings including banking, law, health, and social and community services. Translators at this level work across a wide range of subjects involving documents with specialised content.

• Paraprofessional Translator (formerly known as Level 2): This represents a level of competence enabling the production of a translation of non-specialised information (for example a birth certificate). Practitioners at this level are encouraged to obtain Professional-Level accreditation.
