Language Service Section

The language service includes the French language service and the Italian language service. It

  • translates all the documents of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN);
  • controls the quality of internally translated texts and of externally commissioned translations;
  • ensures terminological consistency in the documents of the FOEN;
  • provides information and linguistic support to FOEN staff.


As of 1 January 2019, the language service applies a call for tender procedure for every translation order from German into English and has already selected the external translators for the period 2019-2023.
