UvA Translation List

The UvA Translation List, ratified by the UvA Executive Board, includes the preferred translations of terms used within the UvA in the areas of teaching and research, policy and management, legal rights and obligations and personnel matters.

The purpose of the Translation List is to facilitate consistency in the translation of UvA terms. The Translation List is offered as a tool for UvA employees and for external translators and translation agencies.
