Translation for Banking, Insurance and Financial services
What are the key issues in translation for banking and financial institutions?
The current recession has generated many new opportunities, above all in emerging markets, but competition is fierce from both local and foreign businesses. High quality translation and multi-lingual documentation could mean the difference between success and failure in a new market.
QuickSilver Translate is in touch with all the new developments in the world of finance and insurance. Whether you work with hedge-funds, derivatives or re-insurance, QuickSilver is able to respond to your translation needs precisely and effectively, guaranteeing you the highest possible quality of translation.
The importance of working with a language service provider which specialises in the financial sector cannot be overstated. To take an example: bad debt management. Anyone with business experience knows that this expression means the management of bad debts, and that a bad debt is an amount of money owing to a company which is unlikely to be paid.
Yet we have seen this translated into Spanish as mala gestión de deudas, which simply means bad management of debts. There is nothing in the English syntax which tells us that the adjective refers to “debts” rather than to “management”. Only specialist knowledge can resolve issues like this, and the world of translation is full of them.
QuickSilver also has wide experience responding to the challenges faced by companies which outsource to other parts of the globe, both in terms of intra-company co-ordination, and compliance with different legislative systems.
