The language factory achieves coveted iso certification

The Language Factory has achieved International Standard Organisation (ISO) Certification 17100:2015 for their international business translation services. Certification is awarded in the UK by the Association of Translation Companies (ATC), the leading trade organisation of the UK translation industry.

For companies wishing to use translation services, ISO certification represents authoritative 3rd party authentication from the ATC, of a company’s ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

ISO Process

Translation companies wishing to attain certification undergo a lengthy and comprehensive process-audit by qualified external consultants. The two-stage audit includes examination of core management processes, qualification requirements, the availability and management of resources, and other actions necessary for the delivery of the highest quality translation service.

The audit identifies the recipient translation company as being equipped to address risks and opportunities associated with a translation context and objective, to facilitate enhancements for customer satisfaction and demonstrate conformity to specified quality management systems.

The Language factory. Translation. Made Simple.

At the Language Factory we always strive to go the extra mile, providing clients not just with ‘translations’, but with fully rounded translation solutions. Our global network of experienced translators provide precise translation but also consider the final application of client projects.

We point out what client’s may have forgotten, identify areas where issues might arise in the future and suggest improvements to text to ultimately deliver a superior outcome. This all happens under the watchful eye of our expert linguist Project Managers who guide clients seamlessly through the entire process, end-to-end. No speed bumps. No hic-ups. No hold ups.

ISO Background

ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organisation with a membership of 162 national standards bodies.

Their International Standards make things work. They give world-class specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency. They are instrumental in facilitating international trade.

The ISO began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to create a new international organisation ‘to facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards’. On 23rd February 1947 the new organisation, ISO, officially began operations.

Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market-relevant international standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.

Since its inception, ISO has published over 22,436 International Standards covering almost all aspects of technology, business service and manufacturing. Today ISO has members from 162 countries and 785 technical committees and sub-committees to take care of standards development.
