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).
