ISO 8000 is the global standard for data quality – you may already have heard about it in the context of the Language Industry’s new ‘data economy’ discussions. ISO 8000 does not explicitly regulate qualities of linguistic data or assets, but it could be adapted.

In this short talk, Marcus Danei offers an overview of the main principles of ISO 8000, and some food for thought on the following topics:

• The potential role of data quality management systems in the context of data sharing or data trading in the Language Industry

• Is it worth adapting ISO 8000 principles for the language industry and engaging with the relevant standardization bodies, or what are the alternatives?
