This paper presents an overview of the sign language interpreting profession in Australia. The paper is organised into five parts. First, we provide an introduction to the Australian context by providing brief geographic and demographic information, and specific information about the Deaf community and Australian Sign Language (Auslan). We then present information on three key areas: the profession, training and research.
