GOVERNMENT

Government

The U.S. population is not a homogenous culture. Quite the contrary, it is one with strong ties to many different countries of origin and preferred languages; the U.S. Census Bureau has reported there are currently 350 languages spoken in American homes. Per Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 2000’s Executive Order 13166, the federal government is required to create reasonable access to language for people with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). As a certified women-owned business (WBENC), minority-owned business (NMSDC) and women-owned small business (SBA), Terra Translations values this diversity. We want to help government entities create an inclusive culture for their communities. Working with a team who truly understands the multitude of nuances in language is essential to conveying the correct message. We strive to avoid cultural ambiguities and work with neutral dialects that can be understood by people originating from different parts of the world, with different cultural and educational backgrounds. Here are some of the reasons why the Terra team can be entrusted with work impacting local, state and federal government entities, as well as prime contractors.

Data and Cybersecurity
Terra Translations is both ISO 9001:2015 and 17100:2015 certified. The organization was intensely scrutinized and evaluated by the International Organization for Standardization to be deemed worthy of ISO certifications.To maintain these qualifications, the team is expected to continue operating at the same level of excellence to maintain data integrity and security. This evaluation process included review and audit of Terra’s adherence to technical protocol and cybersecurity procedures. Security measures include employing an elite team of project managers and linguists in the U.S., restricting and regulating access to office space and hardware, encrypting all media and content that contains confidential information and utilizing secure and U.S. based internet service providers. Third-party validation of system security is also regularly executed via rigorous stress tests to ensure security and to highlight any potential points of weakness to maintain ultimate protection and data continuity. At-rest and in-transit Terra’s proprietary platform helps clients prevent critical data from falling into the wrong hands.

Confidentiality and Document Control
Maintaining confidentiality, document control and client trust are vital to Terra. Therefore, the entire Terra team executes work under the most stringent guidelines and practices to preserve the security of all private information entrusted to the company. To make certain that platform and content security is maintained, Terra follows a strict Secure Systems Development Life Cycle (SSDLC) to protect security measures incorporated from the inception of a new project. In addition, all employees are granted minimal access to content necessary for their job functions, as well as applying that philosophy to software and infrastructure, such that no component of the system has more access than required.
