Investment Translation Services
In the modern times with the latest developments in field of communication and information technology the investors worldwide have started getting aware of various investment opportunities in different investment verticals across different geographical boundaries.
With this awareness the investors have started taking interest in investing their capital for better returns than the local options. This has made the investment industry grow in all directions and corporate providing investment options are now serving multinational clients.
This new trend has made a room of opportunities for professionals serving investment translation. Investment translation is the specialized field of translation in which information related to investment business is translated to target language.
The investment options today for investors include:
- Property investment
- Mutual funds
- Deposits paying high interest
- Stock exchange
- Commodity exchange
- Various government bonds
- Different types of business funds
- Equity in different businesses and several other types of investment options.
The specialized field of investment translation requires translators with multilingual skills to acquire knowledge about the legalities of the target location along with the technicalities of the investment branch. Similar to other countries, the foreign investors are allowed to purchase land for housing or commercial development, cultivation of crops or merely for investing and holding purpose. On the other hand, there are also countries where the buying of properties by foreigner investors is shameful.
Secondly, translators serving in investment translation should have a strong background of basic terms like calculation of areas, types of land, different types of units used for measuring land, and the vernacular of the target language. For example, in some countries land is measured in square meters while in others it is measured in square yards. In such cases, the translator should at least know the type of units the target country uses, and should also understand how to properly communicate them in written and verbal form. Also, any legal terms mentioned in government investments of various countries should be understood and translated accurately to the target language.
A translator in the investment field needs to know how the commodity exchange actually works, if the information for investors is to be translated to native language of the investors. Such translation has to be so effective that it should create sufficient impact on the investor. The impact should be so perfect that the investor should finally invest in the respective commodity for gaining profits. For e.g. commodity exchange in UK has several investors that do not speak English language so the investment broker companies take help of investment translation service providers to translate information for attracting such foreign investors.
