EN 15038:2006 Certification
In June 2008, TransPerfect Translations became the world's first major translation services provider to earn EN 15038:2006 certification. This standard, put into effect by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) in 2006, specifically addresses issues of quality within the translation industry.
To receive EN 15038:2006 certification, TransPerfect was audited by third-party certifier TÜV SÜD, an internationally recognized, independent certifying organization. TÜV SÜD assessed TransPerfect on a variety of factors, as outlined by the CEN, including:
- Linguist and personnel qualifications
- Translation processes and workflows
- Quality management and project management
- Technical resources
- TSP/client communication procedures
As the first quality standard specifically geared towards translation providers, EN 15038:2006 is poised to catalyze a paradigm shift in the industry. Through the auditing process, vendors are armed with a clear set of guidelines for future improvement. Similarly, as more companies certify to 15038, clients will gain an objective set of criteria for distinguishing among vendors.
