The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) is a standards organisation responsible for setting, maintaining and promoting high professional standards. We are a company that is jointly owned by the nine governments of Australia. We are governed by a Board of Directors, who are appointed by the owners.
Our mission is to set and maintain high national standards in translating and interpreting to enable the existence of a pool of certified translators and interpreters responsive to the changing needs and demography of the Australian community.
Our aim is to be a respected and recognised global leader in the provision of certification services for translators and interpreters, providing quality services and being responsive to the individuals and organisations which benefit from NAATI’s services.
NAATI’s work enhances the translation and interpreting industry’s competitiveness and contributes to a community demand for everyone to be able to communicate and interact with each other.
