Lingsoft selected as translation service provider for Finland's state administration
|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.

Did you find an error?
Lingsoft continuously improves its state-of-art language models, which are the core linguistic resources of its spelling and grammar checkers, as well as hyphenators, thesauri and various-purpose language analyzers, to reflect the changes in languages.
With this form you can suggest a word, which you think should be included, and thus be recognized as correctly spelled by Lingsoft's spell-checker, or a word, which you think should be excluded, and thus be flagged as false.
Lingsoft reserves an exclusive right to accept, modify or decline suggestions to include or exclude a particular word to or from its language model of the according language and/or domain without further notice. Thus, for example a yearly update of a common-language spelling and grammar checker may or may not include the suggestion. Lingsoft may for computational linguistic or other reasons decide to leave even an awkward or outdated word, word form, or compound in the language model, but flag it as eventually false or inappropriate with a grammar checker rule.
If you have particular vocabulary needs for your organization, such as a corporate or domain-related language management, please contact a Lingsoft solution expert for more information on customized language management tools.
