GLS Receives ISO 17100:2015 Certification

Global Language Strategies is pleased to announce that it received its ISO 17100:2015 certification on April 28, 2022. This milestone was achieved following a two-day audit conducted by TUV Rheinland which focused on GLS’ translation management system and streamlined processes in place for performing foreign language translation services. 
ISO 17100:2015 is the international standard for the translation industry. It identifies the requirements for establishing a quality management system (QMS) for translation service providers in four key areas: 

  1. Resources – defines the responsibilities and competency requirements for Translators, Editors and Project Managers.
  2. Pre-Production – specifies the requirements for quoting and entering into agreements
  3. Production – ensures the appropriate workflow is defined and managed and that customer needs are met
  4. Post-Production – requires that the language service provider validate customer requirements have been met and take action to correct any deficiencies, if applicable

The achievement of this certification demonstrates the company’s commitment to adopting industry standards and providing high-quality translation services that are attuned to the increasing needs of our clients.
