    "The Best Translator is also an Editor"
    (Ann Conti Morcos - Science Editor Nov/Dec 2002 Vol 25 No.6, pg 188)

    - Exploring editing and its relationship to translation -


    The AUSIT QLD Committee warmly invites you, our QLD colleagues, to join us in person on Thursday 11 August 2022, for a talk by professional editor and AUSIT member Glenine Hamlyn on the world of editing and its intersections with translation.

    Don’t miss out on the opportunity to reconnect with your colleagues, network, and discuss issues related to this topic over drinks and some lovely food!

    We encourage you to attend the venue from 5.30pm for networking opportunities before the presentation at 6:30 pm. You are also welcome to stay longer after the event for socialising.

    Be Quick! - Limited to 40 registrations; bookings close at 2.00 pm on Tuesday 9 August 2022.

    QLD Venue

    Brisbane Business Hub

    (entrance via the Visitor Information Centre at 167 Queen Street. There will be an AUSIT banner signalling the entrance to the venue).

    Presenter - Glenine Hamlyn 


    Glenine Hamlyn AE
    is an Accredited Editor with the
    Institute of Professional Editors, IPEd (since 2014) and a NAATI Certified Translator (German>English, since 2020). She cut her teeth on editing at an educational publisher in Germany in the 1990s, producing materials for the teaching of English in German secondary schools. In 2004 she returned to Australia after 24 years in Germany, and, following six years in ecumenical leadership, again took up editing and translating in a freelance capacity. Glenine began her working life as a teacher of German and English in Queensland, and during studies in Germany (she holds an MA in Theology from the University of Tübingen) she taught English and translated academic texts into English to earn her keep. In Germany she also worked in international development for eight years, later acting as a consultant in the Pacific following her return to Australia. Translation and editing have played a role in almost all the positions Glenine has filled. She currently serves voluntarily as executive member and affiliation officer with Editors Queensland, a branch of IPEd.

    Overview

    • Is it true that the ‘best translator is also an editor’? (from Ann Conti Morcos)
    • What is editing? Is it the same as proofreading?
    • What does an editor do? What is ‘post-editing’?

    The terminology surrounding these activities is highly confusing. We will untangle the terminology, examine the role of an editor and explore possible intersections between translation and editing. Glenine is keen to hear your insights.

    Using examples, we will look at some common issues of grammar and style in English and determine how an editor might deal with these. Glenine will share some online sources of guidance.

    NAT: Update to the Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts & Tribunals


    What's New for Interpreters
    Via Zoom online
    Saturday 13 August 2022 
    10.30am - 11.30 am AEST

    REGISTRATIONS CLOSED

    Sponsored by


    In April 2022, the Judicial Council on Cultural Diversity (JCCD) launched the second edition of its RNS. The RNS are directed at courts and tribunals, judicial officers, interpreters, and members of the legal profession. They aim to provide courts and legal professionals with guidance on engaging and working with interpreters to ensure procedural fairness for people with limited English proficiency.
    Thanks to NAATI's sponsorship, AUSIT is able to present this free webinar to review the changes that have been introduced in light of NAATI’s new certification system and the recent surge in video remote court interpreting. We will explore the advances in the way court interpreters work since the first publication in 2017, and the achievements and challenges of implementing the RNS. Learn practical steps that will assist you in achieving the working conditions you require to professionally deliver your services so they may better serve the justice system.
    Prior to attending the session, it would be beneficial for participants to familiarise themselves with the second edition of the RNS, which can be accessed for free on the JCCD’s website.

    Participants must pass an Online Quiz following the event to receive a Certificate of Participation.

    Fine-tune your Spanish into English translation skills in the company of fellow translators.


    Who is this for? AUSIT members who translate from Spanish into English.

    What level is it pitched at?
    Intermediate. The text is quite demanding (text available here.) Please consult the NAATI Recertification Catalogue to allocate the relevant PD Points. Some activities can be included under different categories, so please choose the most appropriate category for your recertification purposes.

    Do I need to be certified in Spanish to participate? No. The two requirements are that you are an AUSIT member and that you send your version by the deadline (read on).

    What is the cost?
    It’s free for AUSIT members.

    What do I need to do to participate? You need to translate the source text into English and email it to angelo@amicuscuriaelegaltranslations.com before 5pm on 29.08.2022.

    What name do I give my translation?
    Please name your translation ‘Spanish Masterclass August 2022’. Do not identify it in any other way. The versions are anonymous.

    What other information do I need to provide on the email? Please state the following information so that we can assign participants to breakdown rooms:

    - Language combinations in which you are certified.
    - Year of first certification / accreditation.
    - If you are a student with no certification, please state so.

    What happens next? Once you send your translation, the host will email you the Zoom details for you to connect on 31 August.

    What will happen on 31 August?
    The Masterclass will start at 6pm AEST. For the first hour, participants will work in break-out rooms led each by one of the hosts. Each room will work on a paragraph of the text and collectively will produce an agreed version/s. During the second hour, a delegate for each break-out room will take us through the collective version for their paragraph. This exercise is intended to promote the exchange of opinions, appreciate different perspectives and fine-tune style, all in a spirit of professional solidarity.

    Will I receive an AUSIT certificate of attendance?
    Yes. You will also receive the final version of the work done collectively during the Masterclass.

    Time estimated: 120 minutes.

    "Linguistic Ecology" - PD Event

    Please NOTE that there will be a PD event just after the AGM. It will be screened into the NAATI Boardroom from 12.30pm and we would love to see you there.

    Title: Linguistic Ecology
    Speaker: Associate Professor Uldis Ozolins
    Register - KEEP A LOOK OUT for separate eFlash for this event. 

    This PD session takes a step back from the daily practitioner issues in Interpreting & Translation to look at the evolving language ecology of Australia. It briefly surveys the history of language policy in this country, and uses Census data to show important shifts in the salience of Languages Other than English, and an abiding presence of significant numbers who speak English poorly. It finishes with some ongoing thoughts on both language maintenance and language loss.

    Dr Uldis Ozolins is a teacher, reseracher, and practitioner of Interpreting & Translation, and is one of the best published authors in this field in Australia. He has taught at several Australian universities, currently at Western Sydney and RMIT. He is author of The Politics of Language in Australia (CUP 1993) and co-author of Liaison Interpreting (MUP 1996) and of Community Translation (Bloomsbury 2016). He led the team rewriting the AUSIT Code of Ethics in 2012


    Please NOTE also that the ACT is still responding to the threat posed by COVID-19.  We encourage you to attend virtually if you are unwell and to consider wearing a mask if you attend in-person.


    We look forward to welcoming you there.

    The current AUSIT QLD branch would like to extend their welcome to any colleagues who are interested in joining the committee. Some of our committee members are ending their terms and we are seeking new committee members to fill their roles.

    We have several positions open for the coming year. Newcomers to these roles can be assured that they will have the full support of the outgoing position holder and the entire committee. Interested members are welcome to contact us at qld@ausit.org to receive job descriptions of the vacant roles.

    If you feel you would prefer to not have such an active role, it is possible to join the committee without being allocated a position. Becoming a committee member requires you to attend a two hour meeting once a month, give your opinion where you see fit, engage in projects undertaken by the Committee, and provide a hand here and there with organising events. Whether you are new to the T/I profession, or a seasoned professional, all voices are valid and valued!

    Some of the benefits of being part of the committee are:

    · Increased awareness of inner workings of the industry
    . First-hand ability to make a difference to the T/I profession

    · Develop new professional relationships and contacts
    · Reduction in the isolation associated with our profession
    · Recognition amongst your peers and employers as someone who is actively engaged with the industry
    · Greater professional recognition
    · Allocation of PD points for your participation in the committee

    If you have any questions about what is it like to be on the committee, please contact us at qld@ausit.org.

    NEW DATE FOR EVENT


    ______________________________________

    In the dental surgery and out of your comfort zone - explaining - contemporary dental techniques in simple terms so you can interpret/translate for your clients.


    During this presentation, Drs Scott and Carapetis will explain in layman's terms some of the newer dental treatments, how they work, and what is involved. That way, if you understand the theory behind the treatment, you can in turn explain it to your clients, again using simple terms that they can understand. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions not only about those techniques described on the night, but also any other dental treatments you may wish to know.

    Presenter 1

    Dr. Stephen Carapetis is a general dentist, having been in private practice since 1979. He has been the Senior Partner in G.P. Dental Partners in 2005. He has been a member of the Review Committee of ADASA for 30 years. His main interest is in Ceramics (Inlays, Onlays & Veneers ) and prosthetic crowns & bridges for implants.


    Presenter 2

    Dr Janet Scott
    is a specialist dentist in oral and maxillofacial surgery. She has retired from her private practice but is still working in the CBD for a corporate dental practice and also teaching the postgraduate dental students. Janet is the current Chair of the Review Committee, and like Stephen has been on this committee for a long time. She is a member of the Army Reserve.


    The Review Committee listens to and tries to resolve complaints made about dentists, and both Janet and Stephen realise the importance of communication so that the patient thoroughly understands the procedure in language that he or she can understand, not just technical speak.

    Please note
    the AUSIT National AGM will take place on Saturday 26 November 2022.

    The theme this year is:

    REBUILD  &  BELONG
    EVOLUTION - TRANSFORMATION - GROWTH


    The conference will offer participants a forum to discuss practical and theoretical issues relating to the T&I profession, focusing on rebuilding and re-connecting after two long years of the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be exploring the issues of:

    • Cultivating connections with colleagues – camaraderie, team building.
    • Self-growth – adaptation, professional skills, value propositions, new mindset, new focus.
    • Joining forces with other professions – new opportunities, relationships with other stakeholders.
    • Engaging with community - current issues affecting community translation and interpreting.
    • Innovation in the world - the industry in the post-pandemic world, accessibility, new technologies, new advances.

    Program The program will be made available in August. Rest assured, we have an impressive list of keynote speakers lined up to deliver presentations that are both interesting and relevant to practitioners, academics and industry stakeholders. The program will include keynote presentations by Prof. Felicity Meakins, Prof. Liu Min-hua and Prof. Pablo Romero Fresco. Further information will be released shortly on the impressive list of keynote speakers that have already been secured by the organising committee.

    We know that many practitioners have done it tough over the last two years due to COVID-19 and we understand that many are still recovering. For this reason, AUSIT has decided to make this year’s conference fees affordable and enticing to ensure that as many of our members as possible are able to attend. It is thanks to our wonderful sponsors who have generously come on board that we are able to offer this opportunity.

    Our deepest appreciation goes to
    our first confirmed sponsors The University of Queensland, Congress Rental, NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters), ASLIA (Australian Sign Language Interpreters' Association),  Lexigo, Conversations: Interpreting and Translating (All Graduates), Rounded, All About Languages, 2M Language Services, The LOTE Agency, DS5 Translations, Ethnolink, Macquarie University, Memsource and BEDA (Brisbane Economic Development Agency).

    For those attending in person, a Gala Dinner will be held on Friday, 25th November, at the stunning Westin hotel. Please join us for an evening reconnecting with colleagues, and meeting new ones, while enjoying beautiful food and great entertainment in a thoughtfully designed space that celebrates Brisbane’s laid-back sophistication.
