translation solutions made simple.
That’s our specialty: solutions tailored to your global communications strategy. Our broad portfolio of language services covers translations and beyond. We are your full-service language experts. So you get all the services you need and the fast, reliable, high-quality results you expect.
No pain, no gain. High-quality translations are our core business. But delivering high quality involves serious effort—and that’s why we use a quality management system (QMS) based on ISO 9001. We have been certified since May 2010 and are constantly improving our processes and services.
Annual audits by TÜV Rheinland confirm that our quality policy fully meets applicable standards.
What exactly is behind the ISO 9001 standard? Continuous improvement through certification.
A systematic quality management system helps improve both our processes and our services and ensures that our clients receive exactly what they expect.
The ISO 9001 standard stipulates the minimum requirements that a quality management system needs to achieve in order to reach these targets. Besides the need for all processes to be defined and documented, they also have to be designed for efficiency, error prevention and continuous improvement. ISO 9001 is a firmly established component of the global economy:
It is the most significant and most widely used standard in the field of quality management and ensures added transparency and comparability across industries.
Every year, certified service providers are audited by the relevant certification authority and the effectiveness of their quality management systems is reviewed. Every three years, a re-certification audit determines whether certification is renewed.
While ISO 9001 is a standard for quality improvement across industries, the translation sector also has its own specific standard: DIN EN ISO 17100.
This standard specifies requirements for the proficiency of translators, project managers and the translation and proofreading processes.
The four-eyes principle plays an important role here: each translation must be checked by a second translator with the same level of expertise to ensure certifiable quality and that the translation is fully sufficient for its intended purpose.
ACT also adheres to this standard, because quality is our top priority.
Top quality for technical communication: the international tekom certification is a practical professional exam provided by tekom as the Professional Association for Technical Communication.
The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) is an affiliation of international organizations that foster communication and business relations across linguistic and cultural borders.
Certification as a BVMW-audited consultant for SMEs is recognized by Germany’s Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) as proof of quality for clearance to provide government-funded consulting.
