DIN EN 15038 and ISO 17100
DELTA has been ISO 17100 certified since 12 October 2016.
The new standard will replace the previous standard following a three-year transition period. ISO 17100 is more extensive and specific than DIN EN 15038 and allows comparisons between translation providers worldwide.
Compared to the DIN standard, the ISO standard covers a wide range of new criteria, including
- Competence of translation project managers,
- Recording regular maintenance and updating of required competences,
- Handling of project-related client information.
Many companies trust their suppliers based on previous successful collaboration and personal experience. When contracts are to be assigned or framework agreements concluded, tendering regulations, legal requirements or other operational circumstances however frequently necessitate more rigorous assessment criteria. Prospective clients rightly demand proof of adherence to standardised procedures and industry standards. DELTA is therefore one of the first translation service providers to successfully gain ISO 17100:2015 certification.
The ISO standard covers:
- Quality-assured translation and localisation for technical documentation
- Software and multimedia
- Corporate communications
- Online publications
- Websites and e-learning
- Machine translation – solutions and services
