Translations for Accountancy


Professional Accounting Translations


According to Polish legal regulations regarding accounting documents (e.g. Revenue and Expenditure Books), they should be prepared in Polish. These regulations do not directly oblige foreign entrepreneurs conducting business activities in Poland to translate their documentation into Polish. However, in the event of a tax or fiscal audit, the entrepreneur must present the Polish version of all documents originally drafted in a foreign language.

Accounting translations should be entrusted to specialists providing comprehensive and professional project services. We have years of experience in translating texts related to accounting and bookkeeping. POZENA translators are familiar with the industry-specific terminology that saturates accounting documents. It's important to remember that semantic precision in word operation is extremely important in translating such texts. There cannot be synonyms for terms such as current assets, past obligation costs, or replacement value.

At the client's request, the completed translation may additionally be sent to verifiers, which is particularly important when translating documents in accounting and bookkeeping. By commissioning a translation with verification, our clients can be sure that all numerical data from the source text will be correctly quoted in the target text and a second professional with similar qualifications has approved the phrases used. We thus care for the high quality of professional POZENA translations.

Our clients include international corporations for whom we offer quick, reliable, professionally written accounting translations. We also write sworn translations.
