Working With Interpreter Training (WWIT)
Aboriginal interpreters can make sure you and your Aboriginal clients who do not speak English as a first language:
- can understand each other
- have meaningful communication.
If you’re a service provider, you can access training to improve this communication. This is provided by the Aboriginal Interpreter Service (AIS).
