Samples of our business English writing service:
Sample 1 Annual report (translation from German)
The year 2015 was marked by important changes and noteworthy achievements at Group level. The board of directors, working closely with the Group executive management, broadened its vision and, at the beginning of the year, approved a new strategic approach with targets covering the three years from 2015 to 2018. Our main objective is to get the Group back on track to achieve a steady rise in profits, with a view to maximising benefits to our shareholders, our customers and the Group’s employees. These targets were exceeded. Profits after tax rose by 88% in 2013 to EUR 130 million and the expenditure to income ratio dropped to 56.7%, compared with 62.3% in 2012 and a three-year target of less than 58%.
Sample 2 Economic review (translation from French)
By reviewing the national index of consumer prices’ (NICP) basket and weightings, the 2014 reform puts an end to the significant ageing of the index. Its loss of representativeness had, in fact, become particularly pronounced in 2014 and 2015, and it was not neutral in terms of inflation. Over this period, discrepancies between inflation measured according to the NICP and that measured according to the harmonised index of consumer prices (HICP) amounted to around 0.25 of a percentage point per annum. Thanks to the reform, the discrepancy between the NICP and the HICP should become considerably smaller from 2017 onwards.
Sample 3 Press release (translation from German)
