DIN EN 15038 – the standard for translation agencies


The requirement for technically and linguistically correct translations is now a matter of course. But how can the customer check the quality of a translation?


The aim of DIN EN 15038 is to create transparency in the performance of the service. The standard is thereby understood to be an aid for the client and the contractor. It is left to the contracting parties to use the standard as a contractual basis.

Under the scope of DIN EN 15038 the requirements of a translation service provider extend to the following fields:

  • personnel and technical resources,

  • quality and project management,
  • contractual conditions,
  • work processes and
  • any additional services offered.
