Professional Development Training for Interpreters & Translators

The Medical Terminology Course continues to be delivered  in major capital cities in Australia.  This training program is of great benefit to interpreters working in the Health and Medical Sectors. In the course, interpreters learn how to “dissect” medical vocabulary into its component parts and understand the Greek and Latin prefixes and suffixes which constitute modern medical vocabulary. Many interpreters are nervous about venturing into the medical world due to a lack of vocabulary or understanding of medical terminology but this course opens the door for you and provides pathways for further learning. In addition to being a valuable tool to increase one’s knowledge and skills in the Health and Medical Sector the course also provides participants with 20 PD points (Category 1.3)  towards recertification.

Participants at our Sydney presentation all agreed that the course provided an enjoyable learning experience and would be of benefit to them in furthering their interpreting and translator career. 

Language Experts also provides onsite day courses in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne where many interpreters and translators benefit from our pd individual training modules. Completing the available modules in one day is a convenient way to acquire the majority of Professional Development points required for revalidation/certification. These one-day programs are available regularly in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne with the next available dates listed in the home page of our website.  You can register for all the scheduled modules in one day or select the modules most beneficial or convenient to you. 

Our highly qualified practicing and experienced interpreters, translators and trainers encourage a free and active class participation.  Interpreting, by and large, is a solo enterprise and can be at times both daunting and lonely with little or no professional interchange with other interpreters. At our training sessions, we encourage interpreters to share their experiences with each other. Many interpreters comment positively on the opportunity this provides to interact with other interpreters and share their experiences with fellow colleagues. One interpreter commented, “I thought I was the only one to have experienced such situations, but it has been very encouraging to listen to everyone else’s experience and know that I am not alone.” Another comment expressed by a practitioner is “ Well done for your quality training programs and the opportunity to meet other interpreters”.
