About NICSS Interpreters

NICSS employs interpreters with current NAATI qualifications. NICSS interpreters will have experience/skills in interpreting in a variety of professional and government services including but not limited to financial, legal, health and employment.  

NICSS is responsible for the conduct of all NICSS personnel and will ensure they are appropriately qualified, pleasant, courteous and professional in the performance of their duties.

Interpreters are required to adhere to the relevant Codes of Ethics for interpreters as outlined by Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT) and Australian Sign Language Interpreters' Assocation (ASLIA).

Full versions of these codes can be obtained from AUSIT and ASLIA.

 

Deaf Interpreters (DIs) also known as Deaf Relay Interpreters

NICSS maintains a register of DIs.  

DIs can be requested by the Deaf consumer or a third party person, such as a case worker or professional service provider.

Deaf Interpreters work with Deaf consumers who have additional or unique communication needs, who are Deafblind or are Indigenous Deaf people.

Deaf Interpreters work with hearing Interpreters to enable communication. For many social, cultural or medical reasons some Deaf consumers have extra communication needs. Some examples are developmental delays; serious illness that may affect clear signing; limited exposure to English and/or Auslan; Deaf Indigenous Sign dialects and the needs of the Deaf/Blind.

Visit the ASLIA website for more information on Deaf Interpreting.
