How Do I Find a Reliable Translation Agency?

These days there are many different translation agencies. It can therefore be difficult to choose the right one. When looking for a reliable translation agency, it is important to look at the company’s certification. Quality labels are important for a reliable translation agency. A reliable translation agency can be recognised by an ISO certification.

The Netherlands Association of Translation Companies (VViN)

The Netherlands Association of Translation Companies (referred to as VViN) is committed to further professionalisation of the Dutch translation industry. Translations of a translation agency affiliated with the VViN meet high quality requirements. Moreover, delivery and price agreements are clearly communicated and fulfilled. The VViN has assisted in establishing the ISO-17100 certification. By opting for a translation agency that is affiliated with the VViN, you can expect quality and reliability.

Reliable Translation Agency

In order to guarantee a consistent high quality, reliable translation agencies work with a certification. There are many different certifications, such as ISO-9001 and ISO-17100. When engaging a translation agency in the possession of these certifications, you can be assured of a high quality translation. The ISO-9001 and ISO-17100 certifications will be explained in more detail in this blog post.

ISO-17100 Certification

ISO-17100 is an international standard for the quality management system of translators and translations agencies. This standard specifies which  requirements providers of translation services must meet with regard to the deployment of people and resources, quality assurance, management systems, contractual frameworks, project management and general services.

Translation Agency Textwerk is an ISO certified translation agency. The ISO-17100 certification demonstrates that Translation Agency Textwerk executes the translation process in a reliable manner and guarantees a high quality of service, while at the same time employees meet strict requirements with regard to their training and education.

ISO-9001 Certification

ISO-9001 is the international standard for quality management. This certification demonstrates that Textwerk guarantees a high quality of services and products, which meet the requirements and wishes of customers.

Confidentiality Agreement

In addition to certifications, confidentiality is of course also important. After all, documents may contain sensitive and confidential information, such as documents that require a sworn translation. At Translation Agency Textwerk, we exclusively work with experienced and reliable translators. With every request for a translation, you will receive a confidentiality statement by means of which we guarantee strict confidentiality.
