Translating and Interpreting Service
The Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) is an interpreting service for people who do not speak English and for agencies and businesses that need to communicate with their non-English speaking clients.
Their services enable non-English speakers to independently access services and information in Australia.
TIS National provides an immediate phone interpreting service 24 hours a day, every day of the year by calling 131 450.

Depending on your hearing and speech, and equipment you have, you can choose from one or more relay call types.
Voice Relay number – 1300 555 727
TTY number – 133 677
SMS relay number – 0423 677 767
Except for calls made through Video Relay, the NRS is available 24 Hours a day, every day.
