China sets standards for translation services
( 2003-12-05 14:36) (Xinhua)

China's standardization authority has recently issued a set of voluntary standards for translation services, which defines the responsibilities of translation service providers.

Published in both Chinese and English, the set of standards set forth a six-month guarantee period after delivery of the translations. During this period, the providers are held responsible for the quality of their translations and must compensate their clients for substandard products.

The regulation also defines the legal responsibilities of translation providers in maintaining the secrecy of the contents of the translation.

This is China's first national regulation on translation services and the second of its kind in the world, according to sources with the State Commission for Administration of Standardization, which approved the issuance of the set of standards.

Demand for translation services is surging in China as it further integrates into the world economy.
