Certified Translation service providers, especially specialized translators, are required to adhere to the ISO 17100 2015 standard. The needs include translators and revisers and quality assurance, information security, and repeatable procedures. Our compliance ensures that the consumer receives a high quality and safety from us.

A certified translation team set procedures early on to ensure that their clients received translations that were linguistically right and stylistically and technically accurate compared to the original material. Many of the leaders of well-managed translation companies always hear them saying: “We were already meeting many of the standards before receiving certification, so it was a logical next step to have our high-quality products formally recognized”.

At a glance, these are the benefits of working with an ISO-certified translation service provider:

  1. Transparent procedures and unambiguous terms and conditions
  2. Competent language specialists and project managers provide high-quality service.
  3. Processes for quality assurance and information security that have been tried and tested
  4. Customer input is used to adapt projects to their needs, and projects are archived effectively and securely.
