Financial Services

The financial services industry is replete with compliance regulations and subsequently, potential issues that can delay pressing communications and transactions. For many global companies, translation is a means of necessity not just for comprehension, but to remain in compliance with U.S. regulatory organizations as they file documents that have been translated to and from English. Having translated thousands of documents and millions of words for companies in the financial sector over the past 20 years, LanguageSpeak has become well versed in the policies and terminology of the industry.

Our financial translators are well aware of the varying global standards and guidelines regarding the specifics of translated documents. Our experts are trained to be aware of these variances and will work with you to ensure that all translations are legally and culturally compliant.

Now more than ever, it is essential for companies in the financial services industry to maintain consistency in their quality standards regardless of medium and language. No longer is it acceptable to put sub-par translations out into the world for customers or business associates. At LanguageSpeak, we employ a three step process to ensure customer satisfaction:

Step 1: Translation - Each customer in the financial services industry will be paired with a financial translation team who will complete the initial draft.

Step 2: Editing - This draft will then be edited by a professional with native-level proficiency in the source language who can account for any cultural or clarity errors.

Step 3: Proofreading - Finally, a copy editor with financial expertise will proofread the document to be sure that all regulatory standards and terminology are met.

Companies in the financial services industry need to be able to trust that their translators are handling their sensitive documents with professionalism and care. This process is our way of giving each translation the time and attention it deserves. We also take security very seriously. All translators are bound by confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, and all communications take place over a secure server, so you never have to worry about sensitive information getting into the wrong hands.

We pride ourselves on approaching all projects with all of the customer’s needs in mind. This means providing quality translations that also meet all the guidelines set by the SEC, FINRA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and other regulatory organizations. Financial services firm must take steps necessary to ensure that the translation of its presentation is accurate.  LanguageSpeak provides this assurance by certifying the accuracy of every translated document through a Notarized Attestation.
