Once a year the tables are turned on Australian interpreters and translators. The AUSIT Excellence Awards speaks out for outstanding individuals and organisations operating in all sectors of the translating and interpreting industry – an industry responsible for communicating for all people speaking languages other than English.

“These awards encourage best practice, professionalism, dedication to quality, innovation, and outstanding contributions in the field of translation and interpreting in Australia” said Daniel Muller, National President of AUSIT (Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators).

“Going national in 2007, the Excellence Awards have several categories including excellence in both translating and interpreting, outstanding contribution to the translation and interpreting industry, Indigenous translation and interpreting as well as an award for contributions to AUSIT."

“We are a voluntary organisation that relies on the generosity and dedication of our members,” he added.

“Once again we have added another category, for Excellence in Telephone Interpreting”.
Nominations for the 2011 Excellence Awards close on September 9, 2011 and finalists will be acknowledged at the National Awards Presentation Gala Dinner in Canberra on November 11.
