"De beroemde boer interesseert zich voor boekhouding."
Translation:The famous farmer is interested in accounting.
Is there any difference between "accounting" and "bookkeeping" in Dutch? In English, the latter refers purely to the operation of a set of accounts, while "accounting" refers more widely to all aspects of the science and trade of an accountant.
As far as I'm aware, we only use boekhouden in Dutch. But we like to sound posh and use foreign words, so we stole 'accounting' from the English language and make the whole profession sound cool...
I was wondering the same - extract from a website: : "Accounting is a high-level process that makes sense of information previously compiled, and produces financial models using that information. The process of accounting is more subjective than bookkeeping, which is largely transactional. "
