The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) plays a crucial role in establishing standards for translation services, ensuring quality and consistency in this global industry. ISO 17100:2015, specifically, is a key standard for translation services. It outlines the necessary requirements for core processes, resources, and various other aspects that contribute to high-quality translation services. This standard is fundamental for translation service providers aiming to deliver superior quality and reliability in their work.

In addition to ISO 17100:2015, ISO 9001 certification is also relevant to the translation industry. ISO 9001 is a widely recognized standard for quality management systems across various sectors. When a translation service provider is ISO 9001 certified, it indicates that they adhere to stringent quality management practices. This certification is a testament to the provider's commitment to maintaining high standards in their translation services, offering an additional layer of assurance to clients.
