    S03 E01 - International Mother Language Day Special Edition - In Collaboration with NAATI

    S03 E01 - International Mother Language Day Special Edition - In Collaboration with NAATI

    International Mother Language Day is a worldwide annual observance held on 21 February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to promote multilingualism.

    The first episode of Season 3 is a special edition of the Conversations Podcast where we celebrate UNESCO's International Mother Language Day in collaboration with NAATI's Indigenous Interpreting Project.

    In this episode, Lavinia Heffernan from the NAATI Indigenous Interpreting Project joins Fatih as co-host. The main aim of the project is to get as many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language interpreters certified as possible.


    Guest Bio:

    Lavinia is a Luritja-Pintupi woman from a small community three hours northwest of Alice Springs called Papunya. Papunya is where she spent her early years speaking Luritja-Pintupi and learning and living her culture.

    Both of Lavinia’s parents were linguists, and she was fortunate to observe and learn from her parents who did translating and interpreting work, thinking, ‘Wow, I want to be able to do what my parents do one day’.

    Lavinia is a NAATI certified Luritja-Pintupi interpreter. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in General Studies in Education from the Queensland University of Technology. She is currently working as a Project Officer at NAATI on the Indigenous Interpreting Project.

    S02 E14 Interpreter experiences on the implementation of the Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals - Cintia Lee & Silvia Martinez, Certified Interpreters -

    In the latest episode of the Conversations Podcast, Fatih chats with practitioners Cintia Lee and Silvia Martinez about some of their recent court interpreting experiences and the implementation of the RNS.

    The Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals (RNS) was introduced in 2017 but are they being implemented? Do the courts provide interpreters with briefings and preparation materials? What kind of assistance and support do they get from the courts?

    Cintia Lee is a NAATI Certified Interpreter and Translator (Spanish>English), and holds a degree in English Philology from the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain. She has a wealth of experience across a range of community interpreting settings, with a focus on legal and law enforcement. She has been providing professional interpreting services in criminal, civil and administrative courts, and tribunals in Australia since 2011 and has a strong commitment to delivering high-quality interpretation and to upholding the highest professional and ethical standards.
    Silvia Martinez is a NAATI-Certified Interpreter and Translator (Spanish>English), who has concentrated her interpreting practice on conference and legal interpreting.

She also worked as research assistant to Professor Sandra Hale on the project that led to Interpreter Policies, Practices and Protocols in Australian Courts and Tribunals, published in 2011 by the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration, and which laid important groundwork for the development of the JCCD’s Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals.

    S02 E11 - A/Prof. Holly Seale, UNSW - Multilingual COVID-19 Vaccination Glossary

    S02 E11 - A/Prof. Holly Seale, UNSW - Multilingual COVID-19 Vaccination Glossary

    On 16 Jul 2021, NSW Health launched a new multilingual resource on immunisation and vaccination in 31 languages to assist community leaders and organisations. The COVID-19 Glossary of Immunisation and Vaccine Development provides plain language meanings to complex medical terminology about immunisation and vaccination development. The glossary aims to help community organisations, bilingual workers and community leaders better understand and communicate about COVID-19 vaccination to people from culturally diverse backgrounds. The development of the glossary was led by the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) in partnership with a broad range of experts. 


    Guest Bio: 

    Associate Professor Holly Seale is an infectious disease social scientist at the School of Population Health at the University of New South Wales in Australia. She has over 15 years of experience in undertaking social science research focused on improving confidence and engagement of different at-risk groups with immunisation and other prevention strategies. 

    The social science and behavioural research that she leads focuses on promoting acceptance and uptake of immunisation while applying a “whole-of-life” lens. It incorporates innovative research focused on groups that traditionally have received less attention and continue to have suboptimal uptake: children and adults with chronic medical conditions, culturally and linguistically diverse communities (focus on both migrants and refugees) and occupational groups including hospital healthcare providers. This research has included case study analysis, policy and programs reviews, community and stakeholder interviews, resource analysis, provider surveys, sero-studies, epidemiology-based studies and more. She works closely with local and state health departments to lobby for improved opportunities for vaccination, as well as to improve communication/promotion packages.
