Translations at Health

Health has entered into an agreement with a translation agency to supply the faculty and the departments with translations from Danish into English. The agreement with the translator applies to translations provided by an external partner and will have no impact on the translations that the department's or the unit’s own employees do themselves. Consequently, all in-house translation and language services will continue as hitherto.

Guidelines for translations at Health

Who is allowed to translate?

All translation tasks to be handled by an external partner should be sent to Global Denmark by email:

How to collaborate with the external translation agency

  • The agreement with Global Denmark is binding, so no other external translators may be used.
  • Please report back to Global Denmark if you are in doubt about (parts of) the translation or have feedback, e.g. from researchers. If the translation agency does not hear anything, they expect that everything is good.
  • If you change important parts (e.g. specialist terminology) of the translation, it is recommended that you send the final version back to the translation agency so that they can save the exact term and use it in other translations.
  • Global Denmark has a duty of confidentiality. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to anonymise texts that contain sensitive personal/confidential information before they are sent for translation. Please, also note that the content of the text is confidential.

What to do

How to order an English translation

  • Send an email and attach the text to be translated to Global Denmark:
  • Texts for translation must be editable – i.e. in Word, PowerPoint, Excel or similar (not PDF).

Please provide the following information in the email

  • Deadline
  • Any comments or special wishes
  • Any reference files or websites, such as the scientific article, which form the basis for the text
  • The EAN number and contact person for invoicing.

After the translation has been ordered

  • You will receive a confirmation of receipt from Global Denmark by email.
  • Global Denmark will send the translated text back to the person who placed the order unless otherwise agreed in advance. When you receive the text, it is a good idea to run through it and note any comments or queries from the translator.
