Vistatec is pleased to announce that the company has received certification for ISO 18587:2017 in October 2019, which signifies a high standard in machine translation post-editing output. The new certification was received following an audit of the company’s relevant processes by Certification Europe.

The company, which has over two decades of experience in providing global content solutions, is the first company in Ireland (where its headquarters is located) to receive this certification. It is also one of a handful of companies worldwide to receive this certification. Vistatec considers this a remarkable milestone in their growth and outstanding achievement in the industry.

The standard builds on the company’s existing ISO 17100 and ISO 9001 certifications, which enhance the company’s long-standing reputation for excellence and quality within the localization industry. Furthermore, the company standing is enhanced by its substantial know-how in the Machine Translation and Machine Translation Post-Editing domain.

The standard, which was established in 2017, ensures the effective post-editing output from machine translation. It focuses specifically on MT to ensure that machine-translated output is reviewed thoroughly and effectively by post-editing specialists. This provides an output with a high standard of quality. Upon receipt of this certification, Vistatec now holds five ISO certifications in total (ISO 9001:2015 – Quality Management System, ISO 17100:2015 – Translation Service Providers standards, ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices, ISO 27001:2013 Information Security, and ISO 18587:2017 Machine translation post-editing.
