ISO Standards

Professional Standards

Our dedicated team makes every effort to match your corporate style with the most suitable translators. To maintain the highest possible standards, we use only the best translators available. More than 90% of our translations are carried out by translators living in their native country.

ISO 17100

Planet Languages was one of the first companies in the world to achieve certification to the international ISO 17100 translation services standard. This is the definitive quality standard for the translation industry. In order for a translation project to comply with the standard, our process includes a key additional step, which is that every translation must be sent to an independent linguist for revision.

ISO 18587

We were also among the first companies to achieve certification to the ISO 18587 post-editing of Machine Translation (MT) output standard. We have evaluated a variety of machine translation providers and are using translation memory software that can easily integrate with any chosen machine translation provider.

If you feel that your project may benefit from the use of MT, please get in touch, so that we can demonstrate the outstanding results of our recent evaluations.

ISO 14001

As a demonstration of our commitment to the environment, we have just achieved certification to the ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) standard (August 2019).

EMS is a framework which ensures that we manage the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of our services and processes. 

ISO 27001

We are currently working towards certification to the ISO 27001 information security management standard.
