At the University of Borås, we primarily use Gothenburg University's contracts for translation services as well as governmental agreements for those translation needs that are not covered by our internal translation resource.
When using an external translation service, make sure to inform the service of the university's English-Swedish Lexicon so that appropriate translations of university departments and the like are used in the translation.
Gothenburg University's contracts
These contracts apply to:
- Translation from Swedish to English
- Editing of non-scientific texts written in English
The contracts are divided into six different areas based on subject and type of text. Within each area the translation/editing companies are ranked and you should always first turn to the first supplier in the list.
These contracts do not extend to the translation and editing of scientific texts, for example theses and research reports.
General agreement for translation services (PDF, Swedish only)
There are currently no governmental agreements in place. Follow the university's general purchasing guidelines. These contracts normally apply to:
- Other translations, including scientific texts
- Editing of a text that has also been translated (not editing only)
Note! Scientific text editing is not governed by any of our contracts or agreements.
As always, if you have questions, contact the Communications Office.
