How to Translate Bank Documents

The translation of banking documents can be needed in many situations: an M&A operation, a fundraising event, a commercial partnership, an accounting service... Whatever the context, it is essential to use the services of a specialist professional translator.


Which bank documents can be translated?

Many banking documents can be translated including: annual and quarterly financial reports; audit reports; financial analyses; balance sheets and income statements; governance and compliance reports; digital content; bank statements; financial products and prospectuses, etc.

The translation of financial documents may be required by banks, asset management companies, accounting firms, investment funds, or other companies, in the context of a banking, accounting or financial operation abroad.

In addition, foreign authorities or companies often need to have the translated bank document certified as authentic.


Why use a specialist translator for the translation of bank documents?

Regardless of the type of document to be translated and the languages involved, this type of translation requires the services of a professional translator specialising in banking translation.

This type of translation requires very specific skills: meticulousness, attention to detail, professionalism, confidentiality, etc. But it also requires extensive knowledge of the banking sector. The translator must be able to adapt the original document to the accounting, tax and financial standards of the target country.

These skills are indispensable, because in the world of finance, a simple approximation, ambiguity or misunderstanding can call into question the validity of the translated document.
