Membership is Valuable

Being an AUSIT member ensures I stay abreast of latest industry & technology developments and encourages and helps me to learn how to be competitive as a translator. The listing in the AUSIT online directory, reduced rates for CAT technology and insurance, the PD program including seminars & conferences, the AUSIT E-Bulletin and AUSIT social events where you can pick the brains of colleagues are all essential to surviving as a translator in Australia.
