It is important that we use language consistently at the University of Borås whether we are using English or Swedish.

The University of Borås uses British English in official documents and contexts as well as in general communication about the university and its activities. However, the university also makes an effort to conduct communication adapted to our target audiences. Therefore, American English can be chosen in specific cases.

Internal translation

Communication has an internal translation resource (Swedish to English) who is responsible for certain areas of communication relevant for the university as a whole. Communication can also coordinate translation work with contracted translators and translation companies when it comes to English and other languages. If Communication coordinates translation work to English, it can in certain cases assure the quality of the translation as well. However, external translation implies an extra cost.

If you need something translated, please contact Communication.
