Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Department for General Assembly and Conference Management

Text Processing Section

The printed word receives its final form in the Text Processing Section, which includes the six Text Processing Units – one for each official language of the United Nations (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish).  In order to ensure absolute accuracy in all texts, contact is maintained with author departments within the Secretariat as well as with all the units involved in document processing and management – the Documents Management Section, the Editorial, Terminology and Reference Service, the Translation Services and the Verbatim Reporting Service, among others.  The relationship with the Meetings Publishing Division, which receives documents downstream from the Section, is also of prime importance.

Each of the more than 450,000 pages processed per year in the Section is picture perfect.
