Association of Translation Companies

Planet Languages has been a member of the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) for 25 years. The ATC is the only association representing professional translation companies in the UK. Member companies must abide by the Association’s strict Code of Professional Conduct. One of the ATC’s criteria is that members must carry professional indemnity insurance, so that in the unlikely event of a successful claim of negligence against us, we will be able to meet our financial obligations. Our current level of insurance cover of £1,000,000 is ten times the ATC’s recommended minimum amount.

European Union of Associations of Translation Companies (EUATC)

The EUATC is an umbrella body for national associations of translation companies throughout Europe and promotes the highest standards of quality and business practice. It also helps to improve the training of linguists across Europe. The EUATC is recognised by the European Commission in Brussels and is committed to developing Europe-wide good translation practice.
