Bribery occurs in all languages. International anti-corruption laws don’t discriminate on the basis of language. Compliance must be conducted in local languages. It makes sense for FCPA commentary to be available in multiple languages as well.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 11 September 2013
Merrill Brink® International, a leading global provider of language solutions for global companies and law firms, announced a strategic partnership agreement with FCPAméricas to provide translations of articles for the FCPAméricas website content. FCPAméricas covers anti-corruption issues with an emphasis on matters that relate to Latin America, featuring posts that are written by multilingual U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) lawyers with deep experience in anti-corruption compliance and enforcement in the region.
“Bribery occurs in all languages. International anti-corruption laws don’t discriminate on the basis of language. Compliance must be conducted in local languages. It makes sense for FCPA commentary to be available in multiple languages as well,” said Matteson Ellis, founder and editor of FCPAméricas. “We are pleased to partner with Merrill Brink as the leading FCPA translations provider in the region.”
“FCPAméricas is a well-respected thought leader in this space and we are happy to partner with them to better reach their readers in Portuguese and Spanish-speaking markets,” said Jim Moore, executive vice president of Merrill Brink International.
