We have worked with a large number of our translators for many years and continue to expand the technical translation team. With regard to TW Languages’ selection criteria for new translators and revisers to be included on our database we ensure the individuals exceed the minimum qualification requirements as set out in ISO 17100 standard, which identifies the necessary translation, linguistic, textual, research, cultural and technical competences achieved through one of the following:
1) Has obtained a recognised qualification (e.g. degree, diploma, certificate) in translation or in linguistic or language studies that include translation training, from an institution of higher education, and 2yrs of translation experience.
2) Has obtained a recognised qualification (e.g. degree, diploma, certificate) in any other field from an institution of higher education and has 2yrs of full-time professional experience in translating.
3) Has 5+ years of full-time professional experience in translating.
