STP achieves ISO 17100 certification
Sandberg Translation Partners Ltd (STP) is now certified to ISO 17100, the new international quality standard for professional translation services, following a successful independent audit in February 2016.
The auditors, Geolang Certification Ltd, recommended STP for certification after confirming that the company has all of the necessary production processes and resources in place to deliver high-quality, standard-compliant translation services.
ISO 17100 replaces EN 15038, to which STP had been certified without interruption since 2008. The new standard covers project management processes and workflows, the translation and revision process, client-supplier communications and agreements, and the handling of materials and information.
The ISO 17100 standard also sets out requirements for the professional competencies, qualifications and continuing professional development of translators, revisers and project managers.
“Being certified to ISO 17100 is a fantastic badge of quality,” said Raisa McNab, Quality and Training Manager at STP. “It tells our clients and suppliers that STP is a serious, professional translation company that takes pride in its work and can demonstrate solid, documented quality processes.”
“For our clients, it means that they can rely not only on the quality of the translations we produce, but also on our background workflows and processes. It also means that they can count on our project managers' skills and training to consistently provide the highest levels of service.”
