Event description

Description

What you always wanted to know about working for the financial sector and never dared to ask…

The NWTN Boost Day 2018 is your chance to take a fresh look at a subject area you may have shied away from in the past. Join us to explore whether the financial sector might actually offer you interesting opportunities for work.

The event is aimed at all linguists interested in learning about the financial sector, regardless of their previous knowledge in this field. The aim is to give a broad idea of what finance is all about, the many different players in this sector and their diverse activities and – last, not least – the kind of work on offer for linguists and what it takes to fit the bill.

All our speakers are linguists who, following rather different professional paths, have ended up working for the financial sector. They will talk about how they came to develop an interest in this line of work, how they acquired the necessary knowledge, the kind of work they do, any particular linguistic challenges and what they most enjoy about their work.

The day will kick off with a jargon-free introduction into the world of finance, setting the frame that will hopefully enable you to understand the context our speakers operate in. As usual, we will of course be very happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our speakers are Dan Lucas, Angela Sigee, Luisa Sicignano and Simon Diez.

Dan Lucas, ex-stock market analyst, freelance translator since 2014.

With an academic background in Japanese and economics, I graduated from the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London and trained at one of the major accountancy firms for a year, after which I switched to the City and transferred to Japan, where I worked for 18 years as an equities analyst. The bulk of my financial translation consists of regulatory filings for listed companies and IR materials along with reports for investment managers, invitations to shareholder meetings, annual and CSR reports, and internal minutes.

Simon Diez, financial translator and conference interpreter.

As a state-certified and sworn translator, Simon has been translating complex financial texts from English to German since 2013, including equity/company research, annual reports and financial analyses. Having completed the MA Interpreting and Translation at the University of Central Lancashire, Simon has also been working as a freelance conference interpreter since 2016. He enjoys being a freelance entrepreneur, interacting with clients on an equal footing. As a true networker, he is an active member of the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ) and the German Association of Conference Interpreters (VKD).

Luisa Sicignano, ex corporate finance researcher and translator, experienced linguist.

I graduated in foreign languages and literatures in Italy, specialising in English and German linguistics and philology. I then completed a post-graduate course in interpreting and translating. After moving to the UK, I worked for an international company focusing on corporate finance research and translation of information relating to M&A, private equity, investment and stock exchange transactions.

Angela Sigee, fully qualified German lawyer and MITI, freelance translator since 1997:

Having trained and worked as a lawyer, I got into financial translation via legal translations, e. g. in the fields of corporate finance (M&As bond/share issues, IPOs), banking (T&C syndicated loans), central bank legislation and financial regulation, investment funds (prospectuses) and stock exchanges (rules). Over the years, my work has broadened and now also includes financial reports, market reports and marketing material.
