Aboriginal Interpreter Service
The Aboriginal Interpreter Service (AIS) provides registered and professional Aboriginal interpreters. They are here to help to make sure your story is understood.
The Aboriginal Interpreter Service has interpreters from all over the Northern Territory. We have interpreters based in Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs as well as interpreters based in Indigenous communities.

If you speak an Aboriginal language and English, have you ever thought about becoming an interpreter? It’s a rewarding job that can help make a real difference to the lives of Territorians. Find out how you can become an interpreter and download an application form.
You can book a phone or video interpreting session through the Aboriginal Interpreting Service. It is an alternative to face-to-face interpreting when an interpreter is not available in person.
