Iran TransNet

 Today I audited the Persian company Iran TransNet. The CEO of the company, Mr. Saeednejad, and his team were excited and well-prepared like the first time I conducted their Initial Certification Audit based on EN15038 in 2013. As you can guess, this is a highly committed team, insisting on ongoing development. I remember the translator conference they organized in Tehran with me as a key-note speaker in 2018. We provided skills development lectures and workshops for a hundred freelancers, translation project managers, and quality assurance officers during the two days. It was a great event.

The secret of success here is the culture of continuous improvement and always being close to the translators (Their website is a genuine forum for their translators, revisers, and team members.)

Iran TransNet has done excellent and passed the ISO 17100 Re-certification Audit.
