The complete package
Your annual report is a key element of your company’s public image. Diction offers a complete service for your corporate reporting, including taking care of the layout using tools such as ns.publish.
Experts for your annual report
The Diction team comprises specialist translators with many years of experience in the area of financial and legal texts and proofreaders who have received extensive professional training in the areas of economics, banking, finance and insurance and have a detailed knowledge of the relevant industries and markets.
Does your report need stylistic revisions, or perhaps even need to be drafted from scratch? Our finance copywriters will be more than happy to take on the task – and will of course compose texts in line with your instructions while consistently employing your corporate language. We can also connect directly to your system via the Diction connector, enabling our translators to work on your report directly using publishing systems such as ns.publish.
Annual report editing and translations

Diction is a Gold Partner of the Geschäftsberichte-Symposium
Customers from a wide range of industries have been entrusting the translation and proofreading of their annual reports to the Diction experts for years. As a Gold Partner of the Geschäftsberichte-Symposium, one of the top events in the industry, Diction is now collaborating more closely with the Center for Corporate Reporting (CCR) on topics such as corporate reporting, strategy and leadership.
Terminology for annual reports
We use a termbase and a translation memory to manage your corporate terminology and ensure coherence, efficiency and consistency for your translations and editing projects. Find out more about our translation technologies.
We work with documents in (almost) all formats, and are no strangers to ns.publish, QuarkXPress and Visio. We also offer a number of optional additional services. For example, for reports in several languages, we can carefully compare each document, checking for consistency in both content and layout. Our in-house desktop publishing experts can also use InDesign to ensure that the design is the same for each language, from French to Chinese. Of course they also take into account the typographical idiosyncrasies of the individual languages, such as the spacing between a number and the per cent symbol, which in French is a thin space, while in English it should be a hair space.

Won over by the experts
For us, it was really important to have our website translated into English by language experts who also have extensive knowledge of legal terminology. We were really won over by the Diction team! They were fast, efficient and always found the right words.
