Job orders for external translators

The FDFA Language Service is the FDFA's centre of excellence for language support. We provide language services for German, French, Italian and English. When a heavy workload or tight deadline make an internal translation impossible, we work with external translators.

We welcome applications from highly qualified freelance translators. Applicants whose qualifications match the Language Service's current needs will be invited to take a translation test. Those who pass the test will be added to the FDFA's pool of external translators.

The awarding of translation contracts to external translators is governed by section 4 of the Federal Chancellery instructions concerning the provision of language services of 27 March 2017 (BBl 2017 3577).
