UNAKRT Translation Services for Khmer to French

The United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials (UNAKRT) invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from qualified companies which are able to provide translation services from Khmer language into French language.

The required services especifically refer to the translation, from Khmer into French, of documents produced or intended to be used as part of proceedings undertaken before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia.

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia were set up with assistance from the United Nations to bring to trial senior leaders of Democratic Kampuchea and those most responsible for the crimes and serious violations of Cambodian penal law, international humanitarian law and custom, and international conventions recognized by Cambodia between 1975 and 1979.

The proceedings before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia take place on average six hours per day, four days a week (generally Monday through Thursday).

A quality translation of the documents is required. The translations must be accurate, complete and follow set guidelines. The service provider must be reliable and available each working day of the year, excepting Court holidays and judicial recesses.

Vendors are advised that this EOI does not constitute a solicitation.

UNAKRT reserves the right to change or cancel this requirement at any time during the EOI and/or solicitation process.
