process and fees, 15038 certificate Jul 25, 2010

Hello,

Thanks for your inquiry. All fees are decided by the Austrian Standards Institution:

The cost of the initial audit is currently a discounted fee of 260 EUR. The certificate is valid for 3 years. However, The validity of this certificate is maintained by means of surveillance audits on a 1-year cycle (fees EUR 180.00).

You can indeed see all information on
http://en15038.blogspot.com/

So to sum it up:

Certification fees: Initial Certification Audit/First year: EUR 260 / Yearly Re-Audit for 2nd and 3ed years: EUR 180.00. Certificate is valid for 3 years; afterwards we start again with an initial audit and so on.

Attached a sample of your future certificate
All certificate holders are listed in our following databases:
http://www.lics-certification.org/
http://www.on-norm.at/zert_dyn/zert_search.jsp?scriteria=EN%2015038&bnsubmit=Suche%20starten
http://en15038.blogspot.com/

After sending the application form and paying the fees we start with the certification process, which can last from 1 week to 1 month depending on your documentation. You will get the original texts of the standard EN 15038 free of charge (value: EUR 68,00).

There will of course be a test as well for the Austrian Standards Institution Auditors to make sure you meet the expected level.

Please email me directly, should you all need to start the process.

All the best.

Thanks for your post.

There is a test after you meet the conditions and criteria defined, so that is the last step in the process. Please check the certificate blog for all details.

All the best.

Please note that the certificate can be awarded to all translators in all languages, so not only Arab translators and interpreters can apply, as actually this is applicable to all translators and interpreters worldwide.

Thanks.

Sameh

We would be grateful if you told us about your impression after
being certified. Do you recommend this certificate ? Does it worth
the money (especially for someone who needs to travel to Egypt
in order to get it).

Regards,

Ali Al-Saqqa

Very useful Sep 7, 2010

Well, of course it is my friends. You get certified according to an international very well esteemed organization and European Norms which are indeed strict.

Some benefits you can find under http://www.lics-certification.org/tsp/benefits/index.php
Many clients wrote under http://www.en15038.blogspot.com/ about their impression

My main impression as an auditor is that people who like systematical way of work appreciate the main thoughts of EN 15038:

Documented qualification
Description of working procedures
Provably revising of each translation by a second translator
Documentation of all needed processes (not forcing on paper)
A clear and regulated client-translator relationship
The standard is also to be a guideline for clients, not only for translator

Well, it is really worth it.
