BG Communications International is the first Canadian firm certified for ISO 18587

Montreal/Toronto, May 30, 2018 – Montreal’s BG Communications International is the first and only language translation firm in Canada certified for human post-editing of machine translation output to the ISO standard. 

“As the world chair of the ISO TC37/SC5, I was fully aware of the need for a worldwide standard for machine translation post-editing. When ISO 18587 was released, it was important to certify my firm,” said Maryse Benhoff, President and Principal Owner of BG Communications International. “Naturally, I contacted Orion. Nobody in North America knows language standards like they do. Their depth and breadth of experience in language and translation standards is unmatched.”

Maryse M. Benhoff appointed International Chair of the ISO TC37/SC 5 Committee

Ottawa, ON, January 2018 – The Language Industry Association (AILIA) is announcing that Maryse Benhoff, AILIA Secretary has been elected by International members of ISO TC 37 as the new International Chair of ISO TC 37/SC 5.

Maryse Benhoff has been supporting the excellent work of ISO TC 37 since April 2014  when she was appointed as the International Secretary of ISO TC 37/SC 2 as well as the AILIA mandated Chair of the Canadian Mirror Committee to ISO TC 37 for the creation of international standards in the area of language. 

BG Communications enters into a new partnership with CanLII

CanLII, Canada’s foremost resource of freely available legal information, and BG Communications, a large Montreal-based multilingual translation agency, are pleased to announce their exclusive collaboration to ensure selected leading Canadian judgments are available in both of Canada’s official languages.


“With over 2,000 new decisions posted each week, it is not possible to translate everything”, notes CanLII President Colin Lachance, “However, the legal community has highlighted a number of decisions that warrant wider availability in the other official language. We are very excited to work with BG Communications to make this happen.”
