Finance and regulatory reporting


Banks, governments, companies, investors… Spanning the globe and cutting across multiple sectors, the financial industry comprises numerous ultra-specialized branches and caters to a broad range of clienteles and markets. Naturally, communications in this sector present critical challenges, from safeguarding information to satisfying the multilingual needs of major organizations. With proven expertise in this vast domain, Versacom offers unlimited capacity and security standards on a par with the most stringent banking and government requirements.


Since its inception in 1995, Versacom has specialized in the many fields and sub-fields of finance, becoming deeply familiar with their respective terminology, standards and regulations. Communicating financial, banking, investment and asset management concepts in plain and simple language is our forte. Each client organization is assigned a dedicated team of specialized language professionals, some with degrees in finance or related fields in addition to translation. Many Versacom experts are former employees of financial institutions and have completed the Canadian Securities Course, IFRS and ethics courses, or other extremely valuable training.


Each quarter, our project managers, translators, terminologists, revisers, desktop publishing experts and proofreaders deliver thousands of pages as part of a colossal team effort to publish the financial statements and management reports on the myriad investment funds offered by Canada’s largest financial institutions.


Versacom is the leading language provider specialized in public finance. Year after year, the largest public organizations and government bodies entrust Versacom with the translation of their reporting documents and budgets. These high-profile assignments are performed under the most demanding conditions and require the highest level of quality and accuracy. Our professional teams work together around the clock to get the job done. It is no wonder so many accounting and law firms also turn to Versacom for budget analysis translation and client-focused publications.


Versacom is by far the preferred choice among reputable financial organizations and investment firms. Our dedicated language and management specialists have valuable experience in all fields, from securities trading to private banking.


From legal and regulatory documentation to professional training and compliance material and educational tools, regulatory bodies require extensive language expertise. Our professionals fully grasp the importance of diligence in terms of terminology, concepts and formulations, and each client organization is assigned a team specializing in this field and any relevant sub-fields.
