Certified to ISO 17100:

For dependability and quality.

oneword is one of the few leading translation providers in Germany to have been awarded ISO certification. As a result, you know you can rely on our high standards of quality and accuracy.

Why is our ISO 17100 certification important to you? When translating texts about products that follow specific standards, special care must be taken to avoid inconsistencies, because in the worst-case scenario, there can be legal implications (e.g. product liability).

  • What is ISO 17100?

    ISO 17100:2015-05 is the only globally valid quality management standard for translation service providers (service requirement). It replaced DIN EN 15038:2006 in May 2015.

    Its requirements are specifically tailored to translation service providers, and therefore go far above and beyond the general specifications for service providers set out in DIN EN ISO 9001. ISO 17100 supplements other relevant standards (e.g. the Machinery Directive or DIN EN 82079-1) by offering a standard framework for multilingual documentation.

  • The most important features of ISO 17100

    • that our translators must meet stringent requirements for professional experience and technical expertise, and therefore also guarantee that they work professionally and effectively
    • that our project managers must have the relevant levels of education and expertise, and also that our project management processes run smoothly and reliably
    • that our in-house staff and translators are actively engaged in on-going learning and training
    • that we use translation memory systems and terminology databases
    • that translations are reviewed and proofread by a second, qualified translator, and that we implement additional comprehensive quality assurance measures
    • Data security



We promise you that: our technical translators are native speakers, highly qualified, and have also successfully passed our in-house tests.
