Financial terms from BMW report - Vocabulary List for download

As an accounting student, I thought it'd be good to develop some financial literacy in the language. So I made an overview of accounting and financial reporting terms with a few categories (e.g. income statement).

Here's the file for viewing or download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NTHKT5vICKekR5bTQ4SkZMM1U/view?usp=sharing [updated]

I got most of the terms from a BMW company report and translated them into English. Hope some will find it a helpful starting point. :)

This is rad, now I want to do translations of terms from my fields!


Hi Michelle,

thank you very much. :-))

regards Angel


Hi MichM3, good job, but there's a typo page one, right side, second item:Leistungen with ei instead of ie

Rohstoff and Zinsertrag are (m), not (nt)

I'd rather say Vermögenswerte instead of Vermögensgegenstände, especially when you're talking about immaterial goods

Eigenkapital goes without the "s"

Again, great job. I'm sure I couldn't have done it


Thank you! It's been updated now


Each profession has it's own language and accounting is definitely one of them. Thanks a lot for this Michelle! have a lingot on me
