Pacific Grove, Calif. – (May 1, 2014) – Medialocate USA, Inc. announced today that the company and its quality management systems have been recertified for both ISO-9001:2008 and ISO-13485:2003 by TüVSüd America, an independent, third-party audit and certification body.
The announcement was made by Stephan Lins, Medialocate’s chief executive officer.
“Close on the heels of our renewed EN15038-2006 certification this past March, these two ISO re-certifications are a testament to the excellent work Medialocate’s teams continue to do” said Lins, “and a pledge to our clients that their translation projects will be handled with the utmost in quality and care.”

Having these results from two expert auditors show our dedication and commitment to quality as well as continual improvement.”
