Tender for Translations: Make Europe Sustainable For All


‘Make Europe Sustainable For All’ is a 3-year cross-sectoral project run by 25 partners from across Europe. Its aim is to promote ambitious implementation of the world’s crisis plan – the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – by and in the EU. The project aims to strengthen civil society networks working on SDG implementation across the EU and to highlight to the public and political leaders at the local, national, and European level that SDG implementation is crucial for an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for all people and planet.

The project is coordinated by the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), the largest network of environmental citizens’ organisations in Europe. It currently consists of around 140 member organisations in more than 30 countries (all EU Member States plus some accession and neighbouring countries), including a growing number of European networks, and representing some 30 million individual members and supporters.

The project takes place in 15 European countries and in 13 different languages:

English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovenian and Spanish.

For the last two years of this project, we are looking for translation companies that can deliver high quality translations in the above languages of:  public awareness-raising campaign tools such as factsheets, postcards, petitions, articles, toolkits; and advocacy tools such as position papers and policy recommendations.

Translations will be ordered either,

  • from English to the other project languages
  • or from any of the project languages to English

We wish to have offers from professional committed translation companies able to:

  • offer a service for translations services as indicated above
  • offer a service for adding the translated text in design files such as InDesign to ensure delivery of final products
  • offer high quality translations reflecting expertise in the topic of this project: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
