At long last, the Language Service Companies standard has officially passed!
This document will be the foundation for our subsequent work in the realm of standards for the language services industry. And, while we certainly have plenty to celebrate in the passing of this industry standard, we must not rest on our laurels.
The next phase will focus on additional standards for the specific language services that make up our industry: Translation, Interpreting, Transcription, Voice Overs, Subtitles, Language Assessment & Training, among others.
These individual standards will help to professionalize our industry by providing specific guidance unique to each service. In addition, these standards will allow us to address some of the feedback received during the drafting of the foundation document.
With that in mind, I want to issue a call for volunteers to help build the “walls” upon our “foundation” document.
If you would like to be involved with the drafting of a standard that coincides with your expertise, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
