Language Industry Report
This report aims to develop the conversation on the needs for private and public sectors to invest in these critical services in the UK
The Association of Translation Companies (ATC), was founded in 1976 by leading translation companies to create recognition and trust among stakeholders by promoting and regulating quality driven language industry standards and best practice.
The ATC authors the unique annual UK Language Services Market Report and hosts the sector’s flagship event, the Language Industry Summit. As it strives to drive the highest professional standards, the ATC has also developed an ISO Certification Service for members. ATC members represent a cross-section of Language Service Providers (LSPs) across the UK.
As a collective group of translation and interpreting companies with members worldwide, the ATC works on a not-for-profit basis entirely in the interests of its members and the Language Industry as a whole.
The ATC works to define standards of excellence in the Industry and its members operate to a comprehensive Code of Conduct to ensure clients are provided with the highest quality services. Joining the ATC gives members access to a network of forward-thinking language professionals and the opportunity to influence the direction of the language industry as a whole.
The ATC supports member companies to achieve ISO standards across management, translation and machine translation
