We work with you to ensure that we use consistent terminology. We have an ISO9001 UKAS certified quality management system. All work is rigorously quality checked, including reference to relevant technical reference material. We can also ensure consistency with glossaries approved by the client, if you have existing approved terminology, and want us to be consistent with this.
