Financial Document Translation - Don't make mistakes!

Tuesday 19 April, 2016

As global trade increases and organisations form a worldwide network of offices and markets, the need for accurate financial documentation translations increases. The translation of Financial Documentation requires a highly skilled financial translator that specialises in the field.  There are a wide range of differences that need to be understood between languages including technical terminology in order to deliver truly accurate financial translations.

Financial document types

Global companies have their offices spread across the world, and it is frequently the case that they have to develop a range of documentation for the local management teams including:

·       Business plans

·       Sales forecasts

·       Market analysis

·       Annual Report

·       Financial Statements

·       Audit Reports

·       Internal & External Communications

It is often the case that there are different accounting practices from one country to another which means the translator will have the responsibility to fully understand these differences in order to be able to translate the financial document accurately, with the correct terminology and turn of phrase.

Private and confidential

Due to the content of most financial documents, they are usually commercially sensitive, so are naturally deemed private and confidential. Personnel, both internal to the company and externally, must be made aware that privacy and confidentiality are vital, often having to sign non-disclosure agreements before being handed the information. This is a fact that all good financial translators are fully aware of and are more than happy to work with.

Financial Translation Regulatory requirements

By trading in overseas markets, it is important that the translations of the financial documents adheres to the regions regulatory requirements. It will be vital that the professional financial translation service used fully understands each regulatory need in the region and is fully conversant with the governing bodies which need to be involved.

Financial terminology

When dealing with the financial terminology across regions, it is important to understand that these terminologies will vary and the differences should be accurately translated by the financial translator. These can be dealt with by ensuring the glossary of terms is professionally translated and that the consistency of use is maintained.
