Guidelines: English-into-Auslan Video Production

The Auslan Translation Project was set up to address this need in 2013. Ten focus group discussions with consumers and translation practitioners were conducted in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The research team also liaised with many industry stakeholders via the project steering committee and through individual contacts. Findings from these discussions and the focus group data analysis lead to the development of the following evidence-based guidelines for technical production based on current best practice and consumer and practitioner feedback.
