LinquaCert is a certifying institute for ambitious translation service providers.

We offer two certificates created specifically to accredit the quality of translation services. Both follow international standards and can therefore be used in all language areas in which you operate.

ISO 17100 Certificate

The ISO 17100 certificate defines requirements for high-quality translation services. During certification, diverse processes of the service in question are examined. The aim is to ensure consistently high quality in terms of mechanics, style and vocabulary. Equally important are the consistent standards.

The importance of processes and procedures in a translation is often underestimated. ISO 17100 ensures that the rules established by project management are followed and also considers proof of the translators’ training.

We will assist you in obtaining ISO 17100 certification and issue the certificate upon successful accreditation. As a recognized certification body, we employ experts in all areas of translation service provider audits.

ISO 18587 Certificate

This certificate was created specifically for machine translations. It defines the processes by which translations are performed by computer. Post-editing is a special focus of ISO 18587 certification. This is where professional service providers differ from freely available online services. It is important for your clients that post-editing adheres to a consistently high standard. As part of ISO certification, we will discuss with you what the requirements are and where there is a need for improvement in your processes.

With ISO-18587 certification, you can improve the efficiency of your translations and streamline your processes without compromising on quality. A certificate demonstrates to your clients that you work within timeframes and can deliver an optimal machine translation.

The right certificate for you

If you offer traditional translations in one or more languages, then you should definitely be certified with an ISO 17100. With it, you will demonstrate the high quality of your services the world over. If your portfolio of services also includes machine translations, you will also need an ISO 18587 certificate, the only one to guarantee the quality of this type of translation.
