Member of the Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ)

The Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Űbersetzer e.V.) is Germany's largest association representing professional linguists. Membership of the BDÜ is a sure mark of quality: all potential members have to present evidence of their professional qualifications before they can join the Association. This offers an additional safeguard for clients commissioning linguistic services and enhances the professional standing of BDÜ members. The BDÜ offers training courses in all technical, linguistic and specialist subjects relevant to interpreters and translators.

During the annual ISO audits evidence of regular further education needs to be provided for both the translators and the translation partners in order to comply with the ISO requirements for recertification.
