ISO Standards

ISO Standards are internationally agreed by experts and can help customers easily differentiate between suppliers that promise and the ones that have proven they can deliver.

ISO 9001:2015 - International Standard for Quality Management Systems

At Planet Languages, we have always strived to be the best at what we do. Our commitment to delivering a consistently high-quality service is underpinned by defined processes that focus on continual improvement and customer satisfaction.

Planet Languages is certified to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard, an internationally recognised standard that provides a framework for businesses to meet the expectations and needs of their customers.

Our quality management system is subject to regular auditing by the UKAS-accredited certification body TÜV SÜD.

ISO 17100:2015 - International Standard for Translation Services — Requirements for translation services

ISO 17100 Planet Languages was one of the first companies in the world to achieve certification to the internationally recognised ISO 17100 translation services standard, the definitive quality standard for the translation industry.

This standard sets out best practices for every stage of the translation process and specifies minimum requirements in terms of translator and reviser qualifications and competences.

ISO 18587:2017 - International Standard for Post-Editing of Machine Translation output

We were also among the first companies to achieve certification to the ISO 18587 post-editing of Machine Translation (MT) output standard. This standard applies to full post-editing of machine-translated content to produce results that are indistinguishable from human translation.

ISO 18587 requires post-editors to possess the same qualifications and competences as those defined for translators in the ISO 17100 standard. We can advise you on every step of integrating MT into your translation workflow, from assessing the suitability of your content for MT to selecting the right post-editors for your project.

With Planet Languages, you can be assured that your machine-translated content is in good hands.

ISO 14001:2015 - International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

Planet Languages is passionate about the protection of our environment and committed to minimising our company's carbon footprint. In 2019, we formalised this commitment by obtaining certification to the ISO 14001 environmental management standard.

ISO 27001:2013 - International Standard for Information Security Management

Planet Languages takes a systematic, proactive approach to managing information security and has robust systems in place to protect your data. Our information security management system (ISMS) has been independently verified and certified to the internationally recognised ISO 27001 information security standard.
