We write more than ever at work these days. We need to master different types of texts and adapt our texts to different readers. When we write at work, we also need to remember that we represent our place of work.

As an employee of the University of Borås, you represent a governmental authority. Since 2009, such authorities have been required to write simply, carefully, and comprehensibly. Moreover, one of the university's core values is to be welcoming. Clear and simple texts make the University of Borås a welcoming university.

We have writing guidelines for both Swedish and English. If you want to know more about the Swedish guidelines, please visit the Swedish version of our website. The English writing guidelines can be found in the menu.
