Translation Studies

Monash University is currently a national leader in the field of Interpreting and Translation. It is the first and only Australian university to gain a full membership of CIUTI (Conférence Internationale d’Instituts Universitaires de Traducteurs et Interprètes), limited to institutions that meet internationally recognised standards. It is also one of the only courses in Australia endorsed at the Professional Interpreter, Professional Translator and Conference Interpreter levels by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Our department enjoys an international reputation with scholars actively involved in the national and international translation and interpreting studies scene.
