Frequent Asked Questions
What is the protocol for indigenous language interpreting?
Indigenous language interpreting is essential for respect and clear communication. First, recognise the deep meaning of Indigenous languages. Before getting an interpreter, ask permission from local leaders or elders if the topic is sensitive. It’s ideal to engage interpreters familiar with both the language and culture. Ensure you brief them on the topic of the conversation. Also, let them ask questions to understand better and translate correctly.
What must you consider when arranging an interpreter for an Aboriginal client?
When getting an interpreter for an Aboriginal person, think about their comfort. Some prefer male or female interpreters, especially for private topics. Remember, there are many different Aboriginal languages and dialects. Make sure the interpreter speaks the same one as the client. Give extra time because they might communicate with stories or body language. Tell the interpreter about the conversation’s topic. And always be respectful, as they help with both language and culture.
How do various factors influence the time required for translating a piece of text?
Translation time depends on factors such as text size, complexity, quality standards, translator expertise, resources, language type, and editing needs. Typically, translators manage 1,500 to 3,000 words daily for simple texts but only 500 to 1,000 for intricate ones. For precise estimates, consult a professional.
