This Canadian National Standard for Translation Services sets out the technical requirements for delivering translation services that suppliers of translation services to the federal government have to adopt.
In addition we are one of even fewer Translation Service providers in North America to be certified as per ISO 17100. ISO 17100 is a quality standard developed especially for translation services providers. The ISO 17100 standard ensures the consistent quality of translation services. It requires regular audits by the certification body, and if any discrepancies are found, the certification shall be revoked.
Many European Translation companies have long felt the need for a reliable method of demonstrating the quality of the services they provide to their customers. Many sought ISO 9001certification as a demonstration of their commitment to quality management systems. However, as the ISO 9001 standard does not address the sort of translation-specific processes which many translators and Language Marketplace® consider important in determining quality outcomes, this standard did not become widely accepted as a "guarantee of quality" in the industry. In 2006, a quality standard, specifically written for the translation industry, ISO 17100, was published by CEN, the European Committee for Standardization. This was a serious attempt to provide certification of translation-specific quality management using independent, on-site audits by recognized certification bodies. This standard is gaining acceptance worldwide and the European Union has begun including it as a benchmark in its tender specifications. Language Marketplace is one of very few translation services providers in North America to be certified under ISO 17100. Currently there is not a general North American Standard for Translation Services.
