    A
    fun picnic for language professionals and their friends and family!

    Although 2020 has been a tumultuous year, there is one thing that you can count on: language professionals letting their hair down for an AUSIT ACT end-of-year event.


    The committee has missed seeing you, so please come along to the Latin American Cultural Centre with your friends and family on Saturday 5 December 2020.  We'll catch up on all your news and tell you a bit about what we're planning for 2021 :)

    Even if you can only make a part of the picnic, we'd love to see you - please stop in and say hello.

    If you have mobility requirements, please get in touch and we'll make a plan: act@ausit.org / jenplaistowe1@gmail.com

    Presenter:

    This event will be hosted by the ACT branch of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT).  AUSIT is committed to providing a forum for exchange, fostering the development of professional relationships with fellow translators & interpreters, agencies and language service users, government departments, tertiary institutions and other industry stakeholders, and promoting ethics and quality standards through the industry.

    Special precautions:

    We will be taking a few precautions, as it is expected that the ACT will still be responding to the threat posed by COVID-19:

    • We ask that members REGISTER for this free event.
    • Participants are asked to bring their own food, drink, and eating utensils.
    • We will ask all participants to sign in when they arrive on the day and confirm that they are not showing symptoms / have not been to a COVID-19 hotspot
    • AUSIT ACT will regretfully cancel the event if we feel that there is risk to participants' health and safety.

    We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 5 December 2020 at 12.00 noon!

    NAT:   Court Interpreting 1
    Interactive Seminar (Via Zoom)
    Friday 11 December 2020
    2.00pm - 5.00pm AEDT (Syd/Melb/Canb/Hob)


    All modules are targeted at an
    introductory level for interpreters who are new to this field of interpreting. Although participants don’t need to attend the three modules, they have been developed in a scaffolded approach where knowledge and pertinent vocabulary is built from one to the other module.

    The schedule of the three seminars are as follows; please refer to the individual eflash for registration.

    Seminar 1 - Introduction to Legal Interpreting (2-5pm, 4 Dec 2020)

    Seminar 2 - Court Interpreting 1 (2-5pm, 11 Dec 2020)

    Seminar 3 - Court Interpreting 2 (2-5pm, 18 Dec 2020)
    _______________________________________________________


    Interactive Seminar 2

    This module will focus on the types of courts and tribunals Australian interpreters work in, how to prepare for court interpreting assignments, courtroom protocols and resources at our disposal.

    Objectives

    Over three weeks, we’ll be delivering an introduction to legal and court interpreting in three modules. Topics will cover an overview of the Australian legal system, and then focus on interpreting in police and courtroom settings.

    Presenter

    Silvia Martinez is a Certified Interpreter and Translator (Spanish<>English), who has concentrated her interpreting practice in conference and legal interpreting. She gained an appreciation of the challenges and requirements for interpreting in legal settings—and the skills—when she completed a Graduate Diploma in Interpreting and Translation at Western Sydney University in 2001. She also worked as research assistant to Professor Sandra Hale on the project that led to Interpreter Policies, Practices and Protocols in Australian Courts and Tribunals, published in 2011 by the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration, and which laid important groundwork for the development of the JCCD’s Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals.

    Silvia works on a freelance and casual employment basis, both with private clients and through agencies contracted to provide interpreting services in courts and tribunals. She frequently works in the NSW criminal jurisdiction as court-appointed interpreter through Multicultural NSW and through the same agency, at NSW Police interviews. And she is, of course, a member of AUSIT and of Translators and Interpreters Australia (Professionals Australia).

    Say goodbye to 2020 with your T&I friends!

    It's that time of year again - and we are very lucky to be able to spend it with each other.

    AUSIT WA would like to invite you to join us to say goodbye to 2020 over a light meal and drinks at "The Partisan" in East Perth. This lovely venue features a waterfront setting and has a relaxed vibe.  Tickets will cover a light meal, and your choice of drinks can be bought at the bar.


    2020 has been a year of great adaptations and change, no less for your branch committee: we are farewelling some AUSIT stalwarts, Annamaria Arnall and Yutaka Kawasaki, together with Cheng (Alfred) Gu as they move on.

    Please join us in celebrating their contributions to our association and the T&I profession on this occasion.


    Any questions or dietary requirements, please contact wa@ausit.org

    Pricing information:

    AUSIT members $20. AUSIT student members $10. AUSIT members (student or not) can invite a plus-one (non-member) for $20.


    Public Transport information:

    The Yellow Cat "Royal St Haig Park" stop is only a few minutes walk from the venue.


    Parking information:

    Street parking around the area is free from 6 pm. If you cannot find street parking, we recommend parking at CPP Regal Place ($5.00 flat rate from 6 pm), as the Wilson parking is pricey.

    This venue is on the waterfront, and
    not visible from the street. Walk down the stairs toward the water.

    This is a live event and will NOT be recorded
