STAR participates in DIN standards committee “Translation Services”
As of March 16, 2017, STAR, represented by Dr. Arnd Flügel, has been participating in the DIN standards committee “Translation Services” (sub-committee NA 105-00-03-01 UA). During the founding meeting in Berlin on March 16, 2017, Dr. Arnd Flügel was accepted on to the committee as a new member.
This new sub-committee is focused on the requirements of the translation process and belongs to the committee NA 105-00-03 AA “Translation and Interpreting Services”, which has been divided into the sub-committees Translation and Interpreting. The committee is responsible for defining the standard DIN EN ISO 17100:2015, which has proven to be of tantamount importance for our business sector.
STAR, as one of the largest providers of translation services and language technology, is interested very much in contributing to the theme of standardization, which is very important for the translation sector. Models and metrics for assuring and evaluating the quality of translations are important topics closely related to our daily business, and we hope for a fruitful exchange of ideas. STAR is looking forward to shaping the future requirements for translation management together with experts from industry, science and research.
