Aboriginal Interpreter Service

The Aboriginal Interpreter Service (AIS) provides registered and professional Aboriginal interpreters.

They are here to help to make sure your story in understood.

You can use an interpreter for anything like talking to Centrelink, a doctor or to housing, not just for court. Interpreters are fully trained so they keep your story secret and don’t take sides. To book an Aboriginal interpreter, call 1800 334 944.

You can book an Aboriginal language interpreter to work anytime - 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Interpreter services include:

  • face-to-face interpreting
  • video or phone interpreting
  • recording and scripting projects.

The Aboriginal Interpreter Service does not translate written documents.
