Australian/NZ Based Interpreters
If an Australian or New Zealand based interpreter, you need to hold the highest level of language accreditation and/or certification available in NAATI tested languages.
Copies of documentation supporting your language accreditation/certification (certificate or letter of accreditation) is required. Alternatively, please provide your NAATI number for validation.
Outside Australia or New Zealand
In order to qualify for registration, you need to demonstrate that you possess appropriate interpreting certifications from your region. For example, if you’re based in the US, you would need to provide validation of your interpreting credentials from a certified language testing accreditation body or government statutory body.
You will need to have a minimum of 3+ years of professional interpreting experience.
You must consent to be engaged as a contract interpreter by agreement, which includes applicable jurisdictional laws based on your residency and compliance with our Code of Ethics and Policies.
Nature of Relationship
ezispeak engages interpreters and translators as independent contractors unless negotiated differently.
Australian Business Number
You will need to provide your current taxation status for the purposes of payment of services.
- All contractors are to provide valid ABNs unless exempt (evidence of exemption is required)
- All contractors registered for GST to provide valid ABN
- If a valid ABN is not provided within 30 days, the ATO requires 49.5% of tax to be withheld.
All independent contractors should maintain their own business insurances if they work for more than one principal (i.e. Language Service Provider). If you would like to opt into ezispeak's group insurance policy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You need to provide a current National Police Check and a Working with Children Check. Documentation you have previously supplied to other language service providers is acceptable - as long as the clearances are less than 12 months old.
