Translation Service Providers gain a competitive edge with the new ISO 17100:2015 certification.
The ISO 17100:2015 Standard for Translation Service Providers (TSPs) can help you improve all aspects of your business.
ISO 17001 is an International Standard that provides the framework for a translation management system. It specifies the steps you need to take to deliver a consistently high quality translation service. This includes how to establish core processes, train translators, manage people and use technology effectively.
Through ISO 17100, TSPs can demonstrate that they conform to an internationally-recognised standard that was created by experts who referenced relevant industry codes, best-practice guides, and legislation.
Translation Services Certification will help you in many different ways by ensuring a consistent approach to delivering a best practice translation service.
The cost of ISO certification depends on several factors. These include your industry sector, your annual turnover, and the number of employees you have, as well as whether you require ASCB or UKAS accreditation.

A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
