IFAC Signing Ceremony Marks Establishment of Cooperation Framework for French Language Translations

Nov 19, 2015 | English

The International Federation of Accountants® (IFAC®) and Fédération Internationale des Experts Comptables et Commissaires aux Comptes Francophones (FIDEF), an acknowledged grouping of French-speaking accountancy bodies, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a cooperation framework to achieve longer-term, sustainable processes for French translations of international standards and other IFAC publications. The agreement was commemorated with a formal signing ceremony in connection with the IFAC Council meeting held in Singapore on November 11, 2015. French is a significant language for translations as it is spoken by about 274 million people around the world and is an official language in 29 countries. The MoU will enable creation of high-quality, up-to-date, sustainable French-language translations of the international standards and other agreed-upon IFAC publications, and enhance adoption and consistent implementation of international standards in the French-speaking world.
