Advanced Diploma of Interpreting (LOTE-English) - PSP60916

RMIT University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS: 00122A

This qualification covers the competencies required for independent and self-directed work as an interpreting practitioner. It reflects the skills and knowledge required to interpret from a source language to a target language in complex dialogue and monologue settings where the physical elements of the setting or number of parties involved can challenge the capacity of the interpreter to manage the discourse. The interpreter will require advanced skills in retention and recall and may be required to switch modes. The Advanced Diploma of Interpreting prepares interpreters for work in all community, business and diplomatic domains, interpreting content that may not easily be predicted or planned for or that may require a high level of subject knowledge, or intense assignment specific preparation.The community, business and diplomatic domains will include health and welfare, policing and courts, formal immigration hearings, education, the media, commerce, government and international relations, professional sectors such as the law, technology and science, and assignments involving formality, or participants with high status where the consequences of errors in communicative intent can have significant implications. Interpreting in this setting typically requires high levels of accuracy and accountability; it is unlikely there will be opportunities for error correction. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.Additional qualification advice Where a SITXLAN unit is chosen from Group B for the spoken specialisation, the resultant testamur must be titled: Advanced Diploma of Interpreting (LOTE-English of chosen SITXLAN unit) e.g. Advanced Diploma of Interpreting (Hindi-English).
