Does anyone have a suggestion for how to interpret "till en gemensam sanning" below?

Re the Asker's note.
The translator's job is to translate. The word 'truth' is a direct and true translation of the Swedish word 'sanning'. Any queries regarding validity of the source text should be directed to the client.

agree  Matt Bibby: Yep, although I'd choose 'form' in George's translation as it's a plural subject.
