Why do institutions complain that they do not get the translation quality they need?

The answer to this is that two things have happened, and one hasn’t.

Newly formed associations representing the interests of language service provider companies in Serbia and Sweden have been admitted into membership of the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies (EUATC).
The Serbian Association of Translation Companies, formed only in November this year with four founding members, immediately mandated its President, David Lythgoe, to apply to the EUATC for membership.
Commenting after the application was unanimously accepted in a General Meeting in Madrid, David Lythgoe said: “It is an important step for our association to be admitted into the ranks of the EUATC. It is vital that the profession in Serbia aligns itself with such a pan-European group, which focuses on raising the standards of the profession and improving understanding among purchasers and legislators of the importance of professionally produced language services.”
The 11 member Språkföretagen, the Association of Swedish Language Service Providers, was also admitted at the same meeting. Anders Uddfors, a member of the new association’s board said: “Our association’s aims include encouraging a consistently high standard of work and ethics within the sector. We also seek to raise awareness of the sector and its importance by providing information to the public, businesses and authorities.”
The addition of Serbia and Sweden to the ranks of the EUATC brings the total number of countries represented by it to 23. President of the EUATC Mirko Silvestrini commented: “The new members will greatly increase the strength and influence of the EUATC across Europe and with more national associations knocking on our door seeking admission, I expect that voice will only get louder.”
