By way of mere coincidence four years now, I was lucky to know Dr. Ibrahim. In the beginning, as always, the case for unknown areas, I was skeptical about ISO, certifications, and standards. In our first meeting, Dr. Ibrahim provides a professional short summary of ISO certification, and we agreed to proceed to the next steps. We walked the steps together, preparing the certification manual, building the system, and educating all involved parties (stakeholders) on the standard translation process. However, unfortunately, we couldn’t have the certification from the first initial audit, for some defaults in our system, however, under the guidance, patience, and support of Dr. Ibrahim, we were able, after three months from the date of the first audit, to achieve the certification. It was a very special deep-dive experience that resulted in endless opportunities in terms of business development, a developed mindset towards business, and quality perspectives, on the corporate level and personal level, for me myself as the company owner. Later to this experience, and fortunately, I had the honor to participate with Dr. Ibrahim through several conferences, workshops, meetings, and subsequent surveillance audits addressing the ISO certification. Through a very close dealing with Dr. Ibrahim, I knew him as professional, tactful, highly committed, fulfilling his promises, supportive, enthusiastic, optimistic, and always inspiring all people around him towards success and excellence. Throughout years of experience with Dr. Ibrahim, I believe he is a true influencer for whoever seeking excellence, success, professionalism, an updated business mindset, or has an entrepreneurial spirit on all levels, either corporate or personal. With all my best wishes and due respect,
Dear Dr. Ibrahim,
I rarely come across real talents who stand out like Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim. I worked with Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim for three years, collaborating on several project teams. Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim’s ability to handle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic increase in the productivity level of our company. No matter how tense a meeting, Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim made sure everyone left with a smile. As a leader, Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim earns my highest recommendation.
Dear Dr Mohamed,
“I was first introduced to the subject of ISO 17100:2015 certification, almost 2 years ago. Given the complex scope and extensive logistics of the certification requirements, I thought it would take me ages to obtain it. However, when I got serious about pursuing all steps and requirements, I started with attending orientation sessions and online introductions conducted by Ph. Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim, ISO Senior Lead Auditor, Representative of MENA Region, and a remarkable expert in this field. He worked with me step by step to make the process as easy as possible, explaining how to build my professional qualifying handbook that reflects my 20+ years of expertise, how to conform with every single detail within the ISO 17100 standards following the structured processes. About Dr. Ibrahim’s supportive and exceptional guidance, he added more value at every stage I have been accomplishing to fulfill the requirements, providing me with key resources. He also helped me identify new methodologies to incorporate in my current processes, with a focus on business improvements.
PhD Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim is a very professional, knowledgeable and easy expert to work with. His words of encouragement and inspiring approach made me feel more willing to deep dive for translation industry new technologies that were even emerging during my certification stage. dr Ibrahim drove me through the limitless boundaries of inspiration and non-stop learning.
I encourage all translators around the region to take this significant step towards a professionally recognized path. Acquiring ISO 17100:2015 demonstrates your commitment to meeting client/business needs by delivering best practice translation services, which can lead to higher profits and distinguished recognition. Applying such flawless process, translation management system is now stronger, easy to track, review, evaluate and come out with a reliable and consistent service.
I would like to thank you Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim for your professionalism both prior and during my recent certification process. It has been a great honor working with you. I appreciate all your efforts. I am looking forward to the surveillance audit next October ISA.”

I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim during the first week of September 2018, when I was assigned by our Leadership to support our Translation Branch Manager and Deputy Translation Manager of the largest translation Section at Vinnell Arabia in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

She also gained a major appreciation of effective business processes structure the ISO 17100 Standard deployment would add to our Translation Branch and she decided to pursue the ISO Certification. As a result, she requested my support management since I had responsibility for all Quality Management Systems deployments at Vinnell Arabia.
When I started working with Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim, I was very surprised, impressed, and very pleased immediately to learn of his exceptional Translation Services experience, knowledge, and qualification considering the extensive ISO 17100 Certifications he deployed successfully for over 200 Companies Globally, by conducting +500 different Certification/Recertification/Surveillance Audits.
We immediately decided to contract Dr. Mohamed-Ali Ibrahim for helping us deploy both ISO 17100 Translation Services and ISO 9001 Quality Management at our Translation Branch.

With Dr. Mohamed’s outstanding guidance and support, we successfully accomplished over the past 3 years ISO 17100 Translation Services and ISO 9001 Quality Management Certification of 2 of our key 4 Translation Sections making us accomplish very significant milestones in our Translation Branch history.
We cannot speak enough of our appreciation of Dr. Mohamed’s professionalism and exceptional ISO 17100 and ISO 9001 technical knowledge and guidance coupled with the ardent desire to transfer significant Translation Industry knowledge to his Customers due to his very strong Subject Matter Expertise(SME) in this field and his belief in making his Customers the very best business in their market, while at the same time being a very tough and strict TUV Austria ISO 17100 and ISO 9001 Lead Auditor during his Customers site Certification and Surveillance Audits.
We highly commend him for his excellent services and recommend him highly based on the excellent and positive experience we had with him in our Organization.
My first encounter with Dr. Mohamad Ali Ibrahim was in 2008 when I embarked on obtaining my EN-15038 certification. From the first moment, I realized how professional Dr. Mohamad is, as he knows the whereabouts of the translation business well.
