What is a NAATI Certified Translator?

Naati Certified Translator, Naati Approved Translator or Naati Recognised Translator

A NAATI certified translator is a certified translator, a translator who has been certified by NAATI more precisely.

NAATI certifies the translator as being competent in English and another language and can translate into or from that language. A translator can either be certified in one direction, for example, Chinese to English or both directions, for example Italian to/from English.

Each translator has a practitioner ID which is unique and help verify their NAATI credentials.

What is NAATI?

The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters or simply NAATI’s primary role is to set and maintain standards within the translation and interpreting industry in Australia. NAATI ensures that all translators and interpreters have gone through rigorous training, abide by NAATI ethics and are qualified to the highest standards. If all requirements are met, NAATI provides the translators and interpreters NAATI credentials recognising them as part of the pool of NAATI approved linguists.

National Translation Services in Australia: Frequently Asked Questions

A certified translation service allows you to translate your document so that you can submit to the relevant Government departments such as DIAC, DIBP, DFAT, Road Authorities, Universities and others.

Formerly known NAATI accredited translators are certified professionals by NAATI who can provide you with the relevant certified and professioanl translations for guaranteed acceptance.

In essence, a NAATI certified translator can translate any document, regardless of the content. The translator will translate what is provided and as it is presented.

Most professional translators will specialise in certain fields that they feel more comfortable working in and only focus on learning and development in that area.

However, a large number of NAATI certified translators translate documents into English for official use in Australia namely certificates such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, academic transcripts, diplomas, driver’s licences, business registration and so on. These translated documents are commonly referred to as certified translation or ‘NAATI translation’.

Here are a couple of reasons why you should translate your document using a translator accredited by NAATI:

– NAATI is the only accredited body for translators in Australia.
– All government official authorities have strict requirements for translation completed by NAATI accredited translators. The authorities will reject the translation if it does not bear a NAATI certification and stamp.

NAATI accredited and NAATI certified are interchangeable nowadays as NAATI has moved from accrediting translators to certifying them. Meaning, that translators are not indefinitely accredited, but are reviewed and reassessed to ensure high standards and quality maintenance.

NAATI recognition however is for languages that are not common. It is an acknowledgement from NAATI of a translator’s past experience as a translator, but no indication of their expertise.

Our NAATI certified translator and NAATI recognised professional translator service is available in all languages, please check our languages page. Some of the common languages for formerly known NAATI accredited translator services are Arabic, Bosnian, Chinese, Croatian, Dutch, French, Greek, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Malay, Nepali, Persian, Portuguese, Serbian, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese.

A certified translation is a translation completed by a NAATI certified translator or as previously known a certified translator who holds an accreditation from NAATI.

A NAATI certified translator usually will include the NAATI stamp and signature of the translator and a translator’s certification statement on the translation.

Government authorities such as Department of Immigration, Road authorities, passport office, DFAT, DIBP all require when you submit a foreign language document that the document is a translated by a NAATI certified translator.

In short, a certified translation is a translation that has been completed by a NAATI certified translator who holds a valid NAATI certification or previously known as an accreditation from NAATI.
