The global financial and banking industry is a complex and intricate industry that requires faultless and accurate translations. From investment reports to disclosure agreements, it has an entirely unique language of its own.

If your business or organisation is looking to conduct international deals, venture into mergers and acquisitions, or explore investment opportunities, clear accessibility and understanding of important and often complex financial information is crucial and can be a major factor in the future of your business’s operations and growth.

In the US alone, 2019 statistics show that 79% of organisations expect an increase in the average number of deals conducted over the next 12 months.[1] In a range of industries from healthcare to technology, it’s clear that financial deal-making isn’t about to slow down any time soon, as businesses flourish, enter new markets, and explore M+A opportunities.

Evidently, it is important to ensure your global audiences understand the financial messages you are communicating. This could include attracting new buyers or discussing mergers. Just a simple mistranslation or communication error could result in huge consequences in such a sensitive industry, such as the loss of a major financial deal, a miscalculation of tax or the missing out on a major investment opportunity.

The latest transaction to make it into the global top 10 transactions was Walt Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox for 84 billion USD in 2017. [2] Imagine the detrimental consequences if financial information in this situation was misunderstood or miscommunicated due to challenges with a language barrier.
