Translation Services of the TU Berlin


English translations for the entire university that are consistent and reasonably priced – this is one of the objectives which is being pursued by the university administration as part of the university's internationalization strategy aiming to provide better support to everyone seeking information about the TUB. At the same time, the translation services will help to remove barriers between members of the university from abroad and the university administration.    

A database will help reduce the costs of future translations and ensure consistent terminology across TU Berlin.
