Global Excellence in Interpretation
Free Webinar Series
While interpreters have shifted to digital communication through online webinars and meetings, interpreters' professional associations around the world have increased their activity, developing and providing online services to members, including training, conferences, one-off events, and more. This accelerated trend has given us an opportunity to share good practice more widely across the world, with interpreters from different countries and indeed different continents joining events of interest to them. This series will develop a pilot international webinar series, under the banner of the Global Alliance for Heritage Interpretation.
This yearlong series of webinars hosted by seven interpretation organizations around the world is free to all interpreters, regardless of membership or affiliation with any of the sponsor organizations! English-Spanish live translation will be available.Recordings available here

So what are we doing in Australia to support the interpretation, inclusion and celebration of this culture? How does modern Australia speak with, and embrace such an ancient culture?

But what does this look like in practice? Join Interpretation Network New Zealand and hear about two projects currently underway in New Zealand that embrace the principles to their fullest and showcase te ao Māori (the Māori world).
