TOIN Awarded ISO 17100 Quality Certification for Language Services
TOKYO, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tokyo based TOIN Corporation, a provider of professional business translation and localization services, earns ISO 17100 certification. ISO 17100 is the new international quality standard for professional translation services, which provides assurances in terms of the personnel and processes used for translation projects.
ISO 17100 sets quality requirements for translation core processes, resources, personnel and other factors to meet uniform international standards. Quality certifications can be especially important for industries that require strict translation accuracy and quality, such as medical devices and pharmaceuticals. ISO 17100 applies to human translation only, not to machine translation with post-editing or to interpreting services.
"TOIN formed a quality team to achieve this important certification," said Aki Ito, TOIN Director of International Operations. "We are seeing growth in industries that require the highest quality assurance, and this certification is a critical client need."
TOIN is also in the process of hiring a Quality Manager who will work with Ken Inoue, who recently joined TOIN as Director of Global Production for Translation and Localization.
TOIN Corporation is one of the longest established language services providers, with more than 50 years in the translation and localization industry. TOIN has operations in Japan, China, Korea, the United States, Brazil, Israel and the United Kingdom and provides translation, localization and consulting services to dozens of global clients in the computing, e-learning and training, consumer electronics, automotive, digital imaging, internet, software and other industries.
