The international standard ISO 17100 Translation services -- Requirements for translation services was published in 2015 and replaces the European Standard EN 15038:2006.
Until now there is only an English version of this standard. You can e.g. purchase the standard through SIS (Swedish Standard Institute).
The purpose of ISO17100 is to determine and define the requirements for providers of top quality translation services.
EN 17100 is intended for all providers of translation services, translation agencies, internal translation departments and self-employed translators.
When a company applies for certification, an independent third party is engaged to verify and certify that the company complies with the ISO 17100 standard.
AKW Consulting can help your company to apply for certification according to LICS®, Language Industry Certification System. LICS® was created by AS + Certification, an Austrian Standards Institute subsidiary and TermNet, the International Network for Terminology.
