Dear colleagues, I would like to invite you to take part in a special networking and PD event hosted by AUSIT WA to celebrate international translation day. This is a free event and open to all translators and interpreters. Please contact me if you have any queries. Look foward to seeing you there!

Saturday 26 September
AUSIT OPEN DAY, Perth, Western Australia
Let's celebrate International Translation Day!

The event is designed to facilitate an environment for practitioners to network, share and acquire knowledge from peers on how to become a better and more successful interpreter/translator. Attendance is free.
This is an opportunity for interpreters & translators to meet some of AUSIT’s National Council and local branch members to find out more about the organisation and the benefits of membership. It’s a great networking and PD opportunity.
Attending the AUSIT OPEN DAY will also give you 30 PD points for revalidation purposes.
