Description
International trade produces a large volume of documents, which must be written, translated and adapted by specialized professionals. Ignorance of this field can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings and, too often, to absurd, hardly decipherable translations. Translation agencies make sure to hire interpreters, translators and proofreaders who are familiar with this specialized terminology. Thus, it is a must to learn the concepts and terms of international trade in order to deal with its technical documents. International trade, as part of the business and financial translation, not only directly impacts corporate and business documents produced by import & export companies and banks, but also business and financial media, the translation of Commercial Codes and international organizations’ publications. It is also a very relevant field for interpreters, since they often take part in foreign trade negotiations (trading, bargaining, agreements, disputes, litigations...)
