Abstract [en]

The English language plays an increasingly important role in Swedish higher education - and not just in English studies. More and more types of university-related documents are either written in English from the outset or translated into the language, for the benefit of students, employees and other interested parties not fluent in Swedish (and far from always native speakers of English either). This brings about an increased need for translation and review services, which are often provided in-house. The present contribution offers a few reflections regarding these types of services, covering some general issues as well as a number of concrete challenges for the translators.
