The United Nations is seeking proposals from potential Contractors to provide high-quality translation services into Spanish from Arabic, English, French and Russian. Given the sensitivities of the documents of the United Nations due to the Organization’s intergovernmental nature, the quality of translations must be ensured by thorough revision of all jobs prior to delivery. The duration of the contract would be for a period of 3 years plus 2 additional options to extend for 1 year each. Interested vendors must possess the necessary technical expertise and capacity to provide the services. Vendors expressing interest must be registered with UNGM so that they can particpate in the Request for Proposals at a later stage. The United Nations may award the contract to two or more vendors. SERVICES REQUIRED: Type of documents: The documents submitted for translation will cover a wide range of subjects, including texts of a general, economic, social, legal, scientific and technical nature, and will be in different formats and of varying lengths. Source languages: The source languages will be Arabic, English, French and Russian. The vendors who express interest to participate in this solicitation will be requested at a later stage to submit the following supporting documentation (THESE ARE NOT REQUIRED NOW): 1. A list of source languages from which they can provide translation services into Spanish. 2. A list of translations previously done, preferably in the legal, economic/financial, political, technical/scientific and general/social fields. Volume of translation: The United Nations annual requirements for contractual translation services into Spanish and related typing services are estimated at approximately 4,000,000 words. Vendors will be requested at a later stage to provide an evidence of ability to fulfil these requirements including at least 3 years of historical data/evidence of ability to deliver the indicated word count. The number of words provided is based on estimations only; there is no minimum quantity guaranteed by the United Nations. Accuracy: The vendor shall guarantee the accuracy of translated documents, i.e. faithfulness to the original text and correct use of grammar and terminology. Established United Nations terminology must be consistently and strictly adhered to through the use of U.N.databases, including terminology databases (e.g., the United Nations Official Document System (ODS) ( and such other sources as may be provided by the United Nations.
