International language services “Made in Germany”
The German economy is international. No company can manage without language services when doing business worldwide. The translation and interpreting sector is therefore also growing constantly. There are a host of providers ranging from freelancers and Internet translators to translation companies in Germany and abroad.
QSD, Qualitätssprachendienste Deutschlands e.V., is an association of medium-sized German companies in the language services sector. One of its aims is to elucidate the quality factor and provide guidance in the heterogeneous translation market. The members of QSD are committed to the topic of quality and quality assurance, since a company’s international success can depend on the quality of its translations. By reverse token, the reputation of the entire industry can be damaged if the translation quality is lacking.
