Updates to the translation request process

Please be advised that there are updates to the translation request process:

  • Translation policy clarification: Only translations of official languages of countries will be initiated by the Version Management Committee (VMC). At the discretion of the VMC, exceptions may be considered if the language is widely used or if the language is of scientific interest.
  • Note that translation projects are complex, can include many dependencies and require substantial resources.  As such, translation requests encompassing more than 20 language versions (including source dependencies) are assessed as large-scale projects. In cases where a significant number of versions are required (20+), we will divide the language list into multiple consecutive projects.
  • In principle, the translation costs are invoiced to the requester of the new language version. The translation costs include the fee of the translation agency and an administrative surcharge starting from the 1st of May 2024.
