Banking and Finance Overview: Case Study


One of the world’s largest global financial firms produces a variety of internal and external documents for its offices and markets around the world. These need to be edited and translated into a wide variety of languages—quickly and accurately.

As well as providing translations, we assigned experienced editors to work temporarily on-site at the client’s premises. As well as ensuring high-quality communications, providing on-demand support in this way helps the firm to manage fixed costs.

The direct interface between Lionbridge and the firm makes it easier to manage the vast number of files and tasks. And as Lionbridge has offices in Europe, North America and Asia, the two companies stay linked 24 hours a day across different time zones.

  • The firm has access to our wide-ranging skills and expertise across translation and editorial services
  • Lionbridge acts as a flexible addition to the firm’s team, without adding fixed costs
  • The firm is able to rely on a professional project management service at the local level
  • Technology-based language solutions help boost the firm’s efficiency

Investment Funds: Case Study


A large European bank provides analyst reports on a wide range of companies to its institutional investors and private clients. The reports arrive in German and, early every morning, need to be translated into English.

The job has very high report volumes, fast turnaround times, and complex technical financial language.

We assembled a team of 15 translators who specialize in financial reporting to handle the high volume and tight deadlines. We also used our integration technology to directly connect to the bank’s document management system. This efficient workflow system enables successful project completion.

In addition, we assigned a dedicated project manager who oversees all aspects of the project, from delegation of translation services and file transfer, to client communication and final translation delivery.

The bank completely relies on Lionbridge to take care of its daily translation projects. It trusts our linguistic and financial expertise. And we deliver on time every day—before the stock exchanges even open.

Over 6,000 Employees across solution centers in 27 countries

As the world's largest professional translation and localization company, Lionbridge combines the language expertise and operational capabilities you need to engage the global consumer with the greatest impact.
