Ahh! International travel! Remember those halcyon days when you could plan a holiday pretty anywhere you wanted? You booked your flight, accommodation and car hire in some exotic location, and of course remembered to take all your passports, visas, if needed and your driving license with you.
Migration to Australia is not on the cards for now, because of travel restrictions that Australia has imposed to contain the Covid-19 epidemic in that country, but that shouldn’t stop you considering just why Australia has become one of the most sought over destinations for thousands of people who are looking for a new life in a desirable location. This article explores what some of the reasons are that explain Australia’s attraction for migrants.
It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the German translation industry worldwide. On the one hand, German as a language is spoken by around 100 million people worldwide and in countries that have a lot of economic and political clout, but the language itself is not a recognised international language. This has something to do with the history of Germany itself and its attempt in the nineteenth century to grab parts of the world as colonies. This is how countries like Britain and France joined Spain and Portugal as temporary colonial masters of large parts of the world.
Most translators enjoy translating for the tourist industry. It gives them the opportunity to be creative with their translation. Not only that but translators get the chance to read and learn about some of the most interesting tourist destinations when they are preparing the translations. This doesn’t mean that translating for the tourist industry is an easy way to make money, as this is not necessarily the case. It does have its own challenges.
Overall in the translation community, there is no doubt that a translator who is a native speaker has a bigger vocabulary and through intuition knows more about the use of syntax. They also have a feel for nuances and other stylistic differences found in their language.
People seek employment all over the world these days and governments and businesses often hire offshore to get the best talent available. That doesn’t mean that there is no bureaucracy involved in hiring overseas employees. If there is a difference in language, there may be a lot of translation required to convert personal, educational, professional and employment credentials into the language of the employer.
If you are married to an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident, or New Zealand citizen and want to live with that person in Australia you must apply for the appropriate partner visa. You can be granted a partner visa whether you are married or in a de-facto relationship as long as it is genuine and has lasted normally for at least the previous 12 months.
There are typically a number of personal documents that are required when submitting an application for an Australian visa for any of the many visa categories including ones for permanent residency, working holidays, bridging visas and employment visas which are just a few made available by the Australian Government. It is important to remember that English is the only language that can be used when submitting any documents related to a visa application.
It’s important to be sure that when you entrust your important documents, correspondence, or marketing material to a professional translator that you have chosen someone you can trust. Many translators work for a translation company and this does mean that these companies probably have certain standards which apply to the translators they employ.
