Helsinki, 24.2.2009 – Hansel Ltd, the central procurement unit of the Finnish Government, has selected PasaNet Oy, part of the Lingsoft Group, as its framework agreement provider of English, Swedish and Russian translation services. Lingsoft has signed a four-year framework agreement with Hansel Ltd to provide translations for the procurement units of the State administration. The agreement strengthens Lingsoft’s position as one of the main suppliers of public administration translations. The total value of the agreement is estimated at 6 million euros and will involve several vendors.

“We have supplied translations to Finnish ministries and public administration organisations for close to 10 years. The translation agreement with Hansel Ltd means that we will be able to extend our services, providing Lingsoft’s high quality language services and solutions to both our existing customers and new translation service buyers within the State administration,” says Lingsoft Sales Director Ilona Eloranta. ”The agreement will allow us to expand our new project and document management system and thus enhance and consolidate cooperation with our translation clients from the State administration. The system is already being used successfully in all of our EU translation projects,” says Eloranta.

The translation service framework agreement with Hansel Ltd is the first of its kind in Finland. Some 200 public administration procurement units are covered under the agreement, including ministries, their government offices and institutions, and unincorporated state enterprises.
