18 Dec 2007

The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) has developed a database that enables professional accountants to locate third-party translations of its pronouncements in more than 30 languages.

The database features information on the languages available, publication titles, names of translating organizations and, where available, lists of translated key terms. To facilitate translation and reproduction of its pronouncements, IFAC has released the following two updated policy statements:
  • Policy for Reproducing, or Translating and Reproducing, Publications Issued by the International Federation of Accountants; and
  • Permission to State that the International Federation of Accountants has Considered a Translating Body's Process for Translating Standards and Guidance.
The translations database and the policy statements can be accessed on the IFAC website at Click for Press Release (PDF 56k).
