The University of Greifswald’s Translation Coordinator

Between 1 December 2015 and 30 November 2017, the University's translation coordinator was responsible for translating German texts into English, which aimed to improve the University’s international image. These included the central website, flyers, brochures and important press releases. 

The Translation Coordinator created a Glossary (it can only be accessed by members of the University) to provide for a consistent use of English at the University. The University’s institutions and administrative staff should use it as a work reference. A Style Guide [de] has been written to help standardise the writing of English texts. Additionally, this table [de] should help German or international academics translate their rank at the University into either German or English. English sample texts [de] are also available to help members of staff  create English texts.

The forms, guides for filling in German forms and translations are provided to members of the university to help international students and academics find their way through a period of study or work in Greifswald.

The Translation Coordinator continues his work in the Central Translation Office for the Universities of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, which is also located at the University of Greifswald.
