Metaphors in Financial Reporting
What is it about?
English is the language to use when making financial reporting in an international context. The language used changes regularly as the financial world changes. Financial texts contain many metaphors in English and these metaphors are difficult to translate to other languages and this paper discusses problems of translating English financial metaphors into Spanish so that Spanish readers of the texts can properly understand the messages and the contexts.
Why is it important?
This paper explains how metaphors can appear and be translated in financial texts. It provides examples of how translations has been made from English into Danish and Spanish and why these translations are sometimes successful and sometimes not.
