Net-Translators Receives Certification for Translation Industry's EN 15038:2006 Standard
Cupertino, CA, April 12, 2012 - Net-Translators, a leading provider of translation, localization and multilingual testing services, today announced that it is now certified according to EN 15038:2006, a quality standard for the translation industry. Compliance with this important industry standard demonstrates Net-Translators commitment to providing translation services of the highest quality and gives prospective clients a reliable and easy way to assess the quality of the services being offered.
"EN 15038:2006 compliance is becoming a requirement for a growing number of companies throughout Europe and other parts of the world," said Gal Yissar, CEO, Net-Translators Ltd. "Net-Translators certification gives them the peace of mind that the quality-centered translation procedures we have refined over a decade are now also compliant with one of our industry's most important standards."
Published in 2006 by CEN, the European Committee for Standardization, the EN 15038:2006 standard was developed to ensure consistent quality of service and conformity in delivery of translation services by language service providers (LSPs). It offers both LSPs and clients a description and definition of the entire service and provides LSPs with a set of procedures and requirements encompassing the core translation process and all related aspects involved in providing the service. These include: human resources, technical requirements, quality assurance, project management, contractual framework, service procedures, and traceability. The standard also requires monitoring the processes used to execute the translation service – from order acceptance to delivery. Unlike ISO 9001:2008 compliance, which demonstrates a commitment to quality management systems, EN 15038:2006 addresses the translation-specific processes considered important in determining quality outcomes.
