Course Description

Learn the basic concepts behind financial translation and start specializing in a high-demand sector.

Introduction to Financial Translation English <>Spanish is intended for translators and financial professionals who wish to acquire both technical knowledge and language skills.

The course aims to introduce you to the skills and techniques which you need to understand and translate financial and accounting documents.

There are more than 500 million Spanish speakers as a first or second language, and 20 million Spanish students as a foreign language. Spanish is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and it is used as an official language by the European Union and Mercosur. It is also the second most spoken language in the United States, where financiers with language skills are very sought after professionals.

The course will cover the key areas encountered by financial professionals, translators, proofreaders and writers. We will focus on some general accounting and financial topics that impact all companies, individuals and institutions, as well as specific topics of interest to financial translation.

This course is taught in English, but It provides a glossary at the end of each lecture with all the terms translated and spoken in Spanish. It also provides listening exercices in English and Spanish about topical financial issues.
