CPD: Financial Translation – A workshop with Tara Russell


ITIA CPD Event: Financial Translation

A workshop with Tara Russell

About the workshop

In this introduction to financial translation, we will examine real-life examples of financial texts ranging from auditing and accounting to company law and taxation. We will also discuss practical considerations such as client acquisition, scheduling and pricing. In groups, we will translate different types of financial texts from English, exploring the challenges these pose and the resources available to financial translators. There will be a Q&A session, and participants are also invited to submit their questions in advance of the event. The event will be held in English and is suitable for new or experienced translators translating into or out of English.
