Central Translation Service

The Central Translation Service supports administrative staff at the University with their translation and proofreading needs. Translating internal and public content into English means bridging the language gap for international students and researchers.

In addition, we focus on establishing and applying consistent English terminology to make settling in for visitors and new members of our University easy, while also defining quality standards for communication in English.
