What's a good standard dictionary for translating annual financial reports for companies from German to English?

For general stuff

Zahn's Wörterbuch Bank- u. Börsenwesen
Hamblock/Wessels - Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch
Woywode's Wörterbuch Rechnungslegung u. Steuern

BUT

for the financial statements and notes you're best off consulting the appropriate accounting standards themselves

Subscription info for IAS/IFRS:

(You can get PDFs online with a subscription - English orig. and German translation)

For HGB there is an XBRL taxonomy available:
http://www.xbrl.de/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=56&Itemid=46

and a book
Deutsches Bilanzrecht / German Accounting Legislation by Fey/Fladt

If you start to regularly translate annual reports, I would advise joining some of the financial translators' discussion lists as well (for example, on YahooGroups).
