Collection and usage attributes
|Collection methods:||The Australian Standard Classification of Languages (ABS Cat. no. 1267.0) should be used for the identification of the language in which the interpreter is required.|
For reasons of practicality and usefulness, sign languages and invented languages, which have not developed and evolved in the same fashion as 'natural' languages, have been included in the Australian Standard Classification of Languages.
Where interpreter services are provided using technology interface/aids or equipment refer to the metadata item 'Communication method'.
