Certifications and Memberships
Euro-Com International considers itself the proud owner of the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Certificate. In this way we distinguish ourselves from many other translation agencies and we follow procedures intended to continuously improve our services. This certification also includes regular interim audits for the purpose of maintaining the quality level.
Translations need to be more than competitively priced, their content needs to be perfect.
The certification is based on eight principles:
- Employee involvement
- Process approach
- System approach-based managing
- Continuous improvement
- Factual decision-making
- Win-win relationships with suppliers
The ISO 9001:2008 certification indicates that our quality monitoring meets internationally accepted standards.
