Following a break of several years, City University, London, is hosting another financial translation seminar for German-to-English translators. The two-day

2015 Financial Translation Masterclass

will be held at the Northampton Square campus of City University, London, on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 December 2015.

Full details are available here:

This masterclass-style seminar is a unique opportunity for practitioners to familiarise themselves with a wide range of translation and terminology issues relating to German financial reports prepared in accordance with German GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs). As well as providing comprehensive guidance on the monolingual and bilingual resources currently available to translators, it will describe the often complex legal basis for single-entity and consolidated financial reporting in Germany and use examples of published financial report translations to highlight a number of the key issues facing translators. An examination of potential translation strategies will be flanked by a discussion of style and register issues affecting financial report translations. The workshop is designed both as a stand-alone introduction to the topic and as a technical update for more experienced translators.

The course fee is GBP 350. Please note that, in contrast to seminars in previous years, payment is due at the time of registration in City University’s online reservation and payment system (registration required). Alternatively, payment is due on receipt of an invoice that can be requested from City University.
