ElaN Languages was the first Belgian agency to receive the European quality standard EN 15038 for language services. This guarantees quite a few things. You know that a native speaker will translate your text and a second native speaker will subject it to a thorough revision. Also, the recruitment and selection of translators happens according to strict standards.

But quality is more than a label, it’s an attitude. That is why ElaN goes above and beyond the EN 15038. For example, in the collaboration with our translators, or the performance of exacting and consistent quality controls.

EN 15038

For more than 20 years, ElaN Languages has been delivering first rate translations that pass all the quality tests. A bold statement? Anything but. Because in 2008 ElaN Languages was the first Belgian translation agency to achieve the European quality standard EN 15038 for translation services.
