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.

Although this course is designed for people with little or no understanding of accounting and finance, financial professionals will have the opportunity to learn -and practice- financial vocabulary in Spanish.

Issues such as the nature of finance, financial translation criticalities, accounting, stakeholders, cultural adaptation or legal forms are discussed. The course also covers basic accounting documents, financial statements and the translation of its terms.

You'll find several quizzes that will help you to reinforce what you have learned in the lecture. Useful examples of financial statements translations are also provided.

By the end of the course you should have a basic level of competence which will enable you to enter a high-demand market with confidence.
