CEN Approves Translation Quality Specification

Common Sense Advisory has an interesting article about the approval, by CEN (the European Committee for Standardization), of EN 15038 quality standard for translation service providers.

The article also compares EN 15038 with ASTM 15.48, then goes on and criticizes the antiquated procedures that were followed in drafting the standard, and above all the lack of transparency in these procedures.

It's difficult to comment on EN 15038 because it is not available freely. It's 22 pages long and sells in at least one location for USD 125!
