Quality statement


We guarantee that all our translators and proofreaders are...

  • 1. Professional translators, native speakers of their target language
  • 2. Specialized in one or more industries
  • 3. Proficiency-tested using our proprietary DRS (DataSource Ranking System) quality assurance system

Using these three selection criteria helps us maintain a consistent level of linguistic excellence. But at DataSource International, we'd rather go the extra mile and strive for perfection.

That's why we use proprietary quality control measures to regularly test all our translators and ensure that their translating skills remain top-notch. That's also why our in-house professional IT team is constantly developing and updating our infrastructure to ensure a smooth and secure flow of information.
