Certification in accordance with ISO 17100

Proven quality for your translation

Rely on international standards for your translations

Schweickhardt Das Übersetzungsbüro has been certified in accordance with ISO 17100, the international standard for translations, for many years. As a result, we are one of the few translation agencies in Austria to hold this certification.

The ISO 17100 standard relates explicitly to translation work and is the best proof for the quality of our work. In the industrial sector and in several other industries, this standard is already a consistent requirement and it has demonstrable advantages for all translation applications.

When choosing your translation agency, make sure it’s the original. Certification in accordance with the standard, which was created explicitly for translation services, brings with it certainty in respect of quality. However, merely adhering to this standard, by mentioning that work is carried out in accordance with it, does not guarantee compliance with the mandatory standards.

Workflow of translations in accordance with ISO 17100 certification

At Schweickhardt Das Übersetzungsbüro, the highest quality is one of our most important concerns. This is why our translation agency is certified in accordance with the ISO 17100 standard (formerly EN 15038).

For you as the customer, this means that we have all your translations carried out exclusively by qualified, native speaker translators. All texts are proofread several times.

We also use the four-eyes principle in our translation process. This means that a different person with at least equivalent qualifications proofreads it for a second time.

For the purpose of quality assurance, the entire process of translation is continuously documented and regularly checked within the company. This enables us to guarantee you absolute freedom from errors and reliable translation.

To ensure compliance with the quality standards, continuous professional development of our employees is an important part of the corporate culture at Schweickhardt Das Übersetzungsbüro.
