Makeover of the Translation section in our online shop

We have recently launched a new comprehensive Translation section in our online shop. Go straight to this page if you are looking for information on IFRS translations in any of the languages we support.

Click on any language and you can view the relevant publications for that language, and from there navigate through the product descriptions, register your interest and access the electronic version (where available) through your eIFRS Subscription. You can also access our publishing partners’ websites and contact details directly. Alternatively, our Available Translations page contains the latest information on current and expected IFRS publications in all languages.

Recently published and forthcoming publications

We are pleased to announce that the Spanish translation of the 2011 Red Book of International Financial Reporting Standards will be available from our webshop in June. Click here to register your interest.

Since our last edition, recent releases include:
  • German and Brazilian Portuguese translations of the 2010 Red Book of International Financial Reporting Standards
  • Russian translation of both the 2011 IFRS Requirements and the IFRS for SMEs Requirements

Other publications coming soon include:

The translations of the IFRS for SMEs in Serbian, Polish, Khmer and Mongolian are expected to be available during the third quarter of 2011.
