Language ultimately has few boundaries, and innovation is not only welcome but sometimes indispensable. However, there are rules that must be respected. 

Lecture 1: Creating a new language for the film Avatar by Paul Frommer, Professor Emeritus of Clinical Management Communication at the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. 

This is part of the Synergise! Lectures Series.

The Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT) is the national association for the translating and interpreting profession. It was founded in 1987, bringing together existing local associations and specialist groups and now has branches in each State and Territory. AUSIT is a fully independent association, incorporated in the ACT, with an Australia­-wide membership that continues to grow steadily. Members of AUSIT are mainly practising translators and interpreters, but those interested in the support and development of the profession are encouraged to join as well. With its aim of promoting the highest standards in the profession, AUSIT serves as a meeting place for all those who understand the importance of translation and interpreting to the economy and society, particularly with a globalised economy and the growth of worldwide communications.
