Translation and proofreading
All language and translation services bought by the university must be bought from the suppliers that are listed in the general agreement that Kammarkollegiet has entered on behalf of all Swedish authorities. The suppliers are listed in order of precedence, meaning that you should always turn to the supplier that is listed as number one in the list first.

The agreed upon delivery time for translation services is 5–10 working days depending on the length of the text. Express delivery can be ordered for translations to and from English with a delivery time of between 1 and 5 working days, depending on the length of the text. For express deliveries an additional 50% will be added to the cost.
How to order your translation
In order to get a good result you must place a good order.
Download the order form from Kammarkollegiet (only in Swedish) that you find under the heading "Order forms language and proofreading" at the bottom of this page.
Fill out the order form.
Send the form to the supplier you are going to use, normally the supplier that is listed as number one in the agreement. You will find contact information for the different suppliers on the links to each respective supplier above.
If a supplier is unable to deliver what is requested, you send your form to the supplier that is listed as number two in the list, and so on.
If none of the suppliers that are listed in the order of precedence list can provide the service you are requesting, a direct procurement can be carried out.
When placing an order for translation from Swedish to English, do not forget to state that we use British English at Linnaeus University.
