Quality undertakings

ISO standards

At the Home of Translation, quality is paramount and we believe that our clients deserve guarantees of our commitment to service, security, the environment and society. This is why we are certified in four ISO standards:

  • ISO 17100:2015 Translation Services
  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems
  • ISO 27001 Information Security Management
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems

Certification in these standards is part of on an ongoing audit process that includes two visits or interviews with an external assessor per year. One of these is a support meeting to offer advice and help grow our management systems, while the other is a re-certification audit.

Find out more about each of these standards below:
