The bulk of my work is focused on translating equity and fixed income research into English or Spanish. Generally, these reports also include some investment strategy texts and macroeconomic analysis. They can be roundups comprising all the investment ideas for a given week or month by one firm or in-depth analyses of a single company, sector or market.

However, the type of texts that come through my desk on a typical workday can be quite varied. They tend to include: press releases; interviews with company employees in foreign newspapers; speeches; newspaper clippings about a company; annual reports: quarterly filings; and white papers.

A significant part of my work also involves the translation of legal documents, mainly contracts.
