What UN documents are available in German?
Last Updated: Aug 17, 2018
In addition to the six official languages of the United Nations (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish) many UN documents are available in German.
In 1975, pursuant to General Assembly resolution 3355 (XXIX) of 18 December 1974, the German Translation Section (Deutscher Übersetzungsdienst, DÜD) was established within the Department for General Assembly and Conference Management (DGACM). It is financed by the German-speaking member states (Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein).
The German Translation Section translates the resolutions and decisions of the Security Council, a selection of General Assembly resolutions, outcome documents of major UN meetings and conferences, the annual report of the Secretary-General on the work of the Organization as well as a number of other important UN documents and publications.
