Translation Back Office Translates Five New Training Modules for the IFRS, Sponsored by the World Bank

Translation Back Office

Wednesday, 6 April, 2011

Translation Back Office, the professional language translation company, translates five new SME training modules for the IFRS Foundation, the oversight body of the IASB. The project is funded by the World Bank.


Translation Back Office provides English to Spanish language translation services for the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) Foundation, the oversight body of the IASB (International Accounting Standards Board). Five new training modules for the IFRS for Small and Medium-sized Entities (SMEs) were translated by Translation Back Office.


The original IFRS for SMEs training modules were published by the IFRS Education Initiative, a division of the IFRS Foundation. The modules were created to assist companies and accounting professionals, as well as to serve as a resource for educators in teaching how to apply the standard. The IFRS Foundation received funding by the World Bank to translate the modules.


Translation Back Office translated into Spanish, the first 17 IFRS for SMEs training modules, back in September of 2010. Recently, five more training modules were requested to be translated. Both the IFRS and World Bank provided very approving feedback on the translated material and Translation Back Office’s technical translation services. Jeff Weiser, Translation Back Office’s Business Development Manager in charge of World Bank and IFRS accounts, explained, “the positive feedback that we are receiving from important international organizations such as the World Bank and IFRS Foundation proves Translation Back Office’s ability to deliver the highest quality translation services.” Translation Back Office looks forward to long-term and positive relationships with the IFRS Foundation and the World Bank.
