Hi to all!
I've been translating more annual reports and accounts recently and have come up with a question. There are different translations depending on which method is used for preparing the accounts - IAS, US GAAP and HGB in Germany. Does anyone have a list in four columns of the various terms?

Here's an example:
Umsatz = turnover, sales revenue
Sachanlagevermögen = tangible assets, fixed assets.
