Tourism translation under ISO standards

Word Works was the first translation company in Spain to obtain ISO 9001 certification for its comprehensive quality control processes.

The ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 quality standards are international standards specifically setting requirements for quality management and translation.

In addition to these two standards, Word Works complies with the ISO 18587 standard, which is specific to the professional and quality use of machine translation engines.

These standards are of great importance in the translation process of tourism documents and we know this at Word Works, which is why we offer specialised services in these areas and take quality very seriously.
In this sense, Word Works has three quality certifications that guarantee the level of its processes and tools. Namely:
ISO 9001 for general quality processes.
ISO 17100 for quality applied directly to the management and execution of translation projects.
ISO 18587 for quality applied to the tools used in machine translation processes. (🔗)

Frequently Asked Questions

The type of documents in tourism translation is very broad. It ranges from brochures and tourism catalogues to restaurant menus, cover and welcome letters, web pages and other content for social media, tourism guides and advertising material. We should also not forget other more formal content such as contracts and business agreements or safety information.
Depending on the type of document, our project managers will select the linguist that is best suited to a given speciality.
At Word Works, we work to avoid literal translation at all costs, when it isn’t required. The way to ensure language is natural is using the right linguist for the job.

The time it takes to complete a translation depends on several factors, the most important of which are the following:

  1. Length of the text to be translated: translating 300 words isn’t the same as translating 300,000 words. The average workload of a translator, without including reutilisation through the use of technology (this increases the average workload exponentially) is around 2,500 words per day. In the case of proofreading, it is approximately 1,000 words per hour. However, these figures can only be taken as a general reference.
  2. Contracted service: by way of example, it’s not the same to just translate (one resource), translate and proofread (two resources) as to prepare, translate, proofread and layout (4 resources).
  3. Technology used: with the support of a translation memory, depending on how much reutilisation can takes place, times can be cut exponentially. Neural machine translation is also available, although this technology does not generally apply to translation in the tourism industry.
