We are proud to announce that in May 2019 we were successfully re-audited to the ISO 17100 Translation Services standard, our 8th year of certification to this international measure of quality management for language service providers. This year we also achieved the newer ISO 18587:2017 standard covering Post-Editing of Machine Translation (MT) output.


ISO 18587 certification stipulates the required competencies and qualifications of machine translation post-editors and sets out guidelines for language service providers, post-editors and clients wishing to make use of the latest MT technologies for rapid translation of large volumes of text where deadlines are tight and critical. This standard was created specifically to cover MT output, which was not dealt with under ISO 17100.


Customers can be reassured that ISO 18587-compliant translation output has been checked by qualified human post-editors for accuracy and comprehensibility to a level that meets the customer’s specified and agreed requirements. Apart from meeting tight deadlines, the use of the latest MT technology can also mean substantially lower costs per unit of translation.


Certification to the relevant ISO standards means that NZTC can continue to offer our recognised quality-assured translations into multiple languages in multiple fields. This also reinforces our position as a leading Australasian language services provider.


We are proud to have achieved continued recognition of our reputation for quality and reliability in such a fast-changing industry and technological environment. A big thank you to all our translators, editors and project managers for their continuous hard work and efficiency, handling important translations for a wide range of companies and clients since our establishment in 1985.


We also wish to express our gratitude to our many loyal clients and customers worldwide who have continued to believe in our excellence and service.
