The ISO-17100 published

The new standard for translation services ISO-17100 was officially published on 1st May 2015 after reaching the approval by all ISO countries in TC37 committee. The screenshot below shows the official publication on ISO website. This means that the standard will be passed to a translation process in the local standardization bodies, after which it will be available in all languages in Autumn 2015. With this scenario, the national certification bodies will be in a position to create and adapt their certification protocols so that TSPs will be able to certify to this new standard in 2016, or even at the end of 2015 according to their national requirements. This international standard will be replacing the European EN-15038, which was the main base for the new one. One of the main aspects covered by the new standard is the reorganization of tasks into three macro-processes: pre-production, production and post-production, and also the addition of the project manager’s profile and role as one of the key participants in translation project workflow.
