Orion Assessment Service certifies Global Language Translations and Consulting, Inc. (GLTaC) to the ASTM F3130-18 standard

Orion Assessment Services first again in language standards certification

Orion Assessment Services has officially become the first audit organization to certify a translation firm to the recently published ASTM F3130-2018 standard. This milestone means that Global Language Translations and Consulting, Inc. (GLTaC) is the first and only language translation firm certified to the ASTM standard.

“The new standard is the only standard that audits the stability, reliability, financial and operational health of an LSC.,” commented Ms. Hei King, President of GLTaC. “I am proud of every member of the GLTaC team dedicated to always doing things better and more efficiently with client satisfaction as our top priority. Our ability to meet the requirements of ASTM F3130-18 reflects the investment we make in security, technology, and regulatory compliance. In receiving this certification, we demonstrate our commitment to running a professional, ethical and dependable company.”

“Once again, I’m excited to offer another standard for our language industry clients,” said David Huebel, President of Orion Assessment Services. “This standard is different from language services standards we offer such as ISO 9001 and ISO 17100 in that it not only requires that organization has the appropriate quality management principles and infrastructure in place, but also requires the organization to demonstrate a continuous and stable financial and operating history.”  Working with Global Language Translations and Consulting, Inc. (GLTaC) has been a great experience. Their leadership, preparation, and commitment made this a straightforward process.”
