Why translate an annual report?
Many large, listed companies aim to present their annual report in two or more languages. One is most often the language used by owners and shareholders in the country of listing, and the other is most commonly English, given that English is the most widely used and understood language in business.
A translation into English is intended to inform foreign owners and shareholders about the company’s position and financial performance, while also attracting new investors and new capital so that the company can grow further. Most companies that translate their annual report have regular routines and processes for translation.
