CTIR supports basic, applied and policy-related research as well as providing a base for a range of commissioned projects. Its interdisciplinary focus allows for considerable interaction and cross-fertilisation among researchers and their research studies. Its commitment to research relevance and to practical action ensures that much of its research is oriented, directly and indirectly, towards improving the professional quality of translation and interpreting, and the status of its practitioners nationally and internationally.
CTIR is also affiliated with the Macquarie University Centre for Language Sciences as one of its major research areas focuses on translation and interpreting.
