Importance of Sector Experts When Translating Financial Documents

What’s Their Secret?… Financial documents are some of the most important documents you’ll create in business. Whether you’re trying to secure a loan, enter into a business deal, create a purchase order, or hire an independent contractor, you’ve got to be careful when creating financial documents.

Importance of Sector Experts When Translating Financial Documents

This task can be difficult enough in your native language, let alone when you go to translate those documents into another language. Is having a translator enough? Or do you need more specific guidance when translating financial documents?

Language Alone is Not Enough

Having an intimate knowledge of both your native language and your target language is important, but it’s not enough.

This is particularly true when you’re dealing with financial translations. The financial sector is multi-layered and faceted, and it’s incredibly complex. You need to make sure that the person doing your translations has an in-depth knowledge of the financial sector as it operates in the country in which you’re doing business.

This subject matter expertise will help to ensure that your translations carry the same weight, meaning, and content when translated as they do in their original form.

It’s an Art, Not a Science

There’s a reason machine translations are typically so inaccurate and leave so much to be desired.

Translation is an art form in which you have to combine linguistic, cultural, social, and subject matter expertise. This is in order to take a financial document in one language and transform it so that it means the same thing in a target language.

Without this artistic approach, you’re left with a cold, scientific, word-for-word translation that can result in inaccurate or even legally problematic end products.
