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

By mere coincidence, for four years now, I have been lucky to know Dr. Ibrahim. In the beginning, as always the case for unknown areas, I was skeptical about ISO, certifications, and standards. In our first meeting, Dr. Ibrahim provided a short professional summary of ISO certification, and we agreed to proceed to the next steps. We walked the steps together, preparing the certification manual, building the system, and educating all involved parties (stakeholders) on the standard translation process. However, unfortunately, we couldn't have the certification from the first initial audit for some defaults in our system; however, under the guidance, patience, and support of Dr. Ibrahim, we were able, after three months from the date of the first audit, to achieve the certification. It was an extraordinary deep-dive experience that resulted in endless opportunities in business development, a developed mindset towards business, and quality perspectives, on the corporate and personal levels, for me as the company owner. Later to this experience, and fortunately, I had the honor to participate with Dr. Ibrahim through several conferences, workshops, meetings, and subsequent surveillance audits addressing the ISO certification. Through a very close dealing with Dr. Ibrahim, I knew him as professional, tactful, highly committed, fulfilling his promises, supportive, enthusiastic, optimistic, and always inspiring all people around him towards success and excellence. Throughout years of experience with Dr. Ibrahim, I believe he is an authentic influencer for whoever is seeking excellence, success, professionalism, an updated business mindset, or an entrepreneurial spirit on all levels, corporate or personal. With all my best wishes and due respect,

Dear Dr. Mohamed,
Hope this email finds you well and safe. It is an honor to write such a testimonial, Dr. Please find below a few humble words that would never reflect your real value.
“I was first introduced to the subject of ISO 17100:2015 certification, almost 2 years ago. Given the complex scope and extensive logistics of the certification requirements, I thought it would take me ages to obtain it. However, when I got serious about pursuing all steps and requirements, I started with attending orientation sessions and online introductions conducted by Ph. Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim, ISO Senior Lead Auditor, Representative of MENA Region, and a remarkable expert in this field. He worked with me step by step to make the process as easy as possible, explaining how to build my professional qualifying handbook that reflects my 20+ years of expertise, how to conform with every single detail within the ISO 17100 standards following the structured processes. About Dr. Ibrahim's supportive and exceptional guidance, he added more value at every stage I have been accomplishing to fulfill the requirements, providing me with key resources. He also helped me identify new methodologies to incorporate in my current processes, with a focus on business improvements.
PhD Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim is a very professional, knowledgeable and easy expert to work with. His words of encouragement and inspiring approach made me feel more willing to deep dive for translation industry new technologies that were even emerging during my certification stage. dr Ibrahim drove me through the limitless boundaries of inspiration and non-stop learning.
I encourage all translators around the region to take this significant step towards a professionally recognized path. Acquiring ISO 17100:2015 demonstrates your commitment to meeting client/business needs by delivering best practice translation services, which can lead to higher profits and distinguished recognition. Applying such flawless process, translation management system is now stronger, easy to track, review, evaluate and come out with a reliable and consistent service.
I would like to thank you Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim for your professionalism both prior and during my recent certification process. It has been a great honor working with you. I appreciate all your efforts. I am looking forward to the surveillance audit next October ISA.”
