Book Launch: English-Chinese Glossary of Financial Terms

Oct 92010

Merrill Lynch, in conjunction with Tsinghua University, has published a Glossary of Financial Terms and Acronyms, a valuable new tool for business journalists and students covering the global economy.

English financial terms are often translated into a confusing array of phrases in Chinese. This glossary will enable Chinese and American business executives and reporters to use the same language.

Merrill Lynch is a founding sponsor of ICFJ’s Global Business Journalism Program at Tsinghua University. “We’re delighted that our program has spurred a collaboration between Merrill Lynch and prestigious Tsinghua University, filling a much-needed void: a glossary designed to establish a common business vocabulary,” said Joyce Barnathan, president of the International Center for Journalists.
