AUSIT NSW is inviting our fellow T&I practitioners to join us in celebrating International Translation Day 2019 at a special evening event on Saturday 28 September. Since this year’s theme is ‘Translation and Indigenous Languages’, we are honoured to have a very special guest, Dr Michael Cooke, to share his experience and insight in this area.
6.15pm Speech by Dr Michael Cooke
Michael Cooke is
an interpreter and translator in Djambarrpuyngu, a Yolngu language of NE Arnhem
Land, and a linguist specialising in intercultural communication and forensic
linguistics. He is widely known as an expert in his field: publishing
extensively in language and law, as a researcher and presenter, and providing
expert evidence as a forensic linguist. Through his consultancy, Intercultural
Communications, Dr Cooke has trained interpreters in Aboriginal languages and
agencies who use them. He provided this support to the Aboriginal Interpreter
Service (AIS) in the Northern Territory from its inception in 2000. This
involved training a pool of 90 interpreters (21 received NAATI accreditation)
across nine Aboriginal languages, and providing intercultural communication
training to over 200 police, legal practitioners and magistrates and to 280
health professionals. Dr Cooke now serves on the board of directors of NAATI.
This is a free event with food and drinks provided - You MUST register by 5:00 pm Thursday 26 September to attend, even though it is a free event.
