After the resignation of former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, a new chief has been appointed on June 28, 2011 to take over. The new IMF chief, Christine Lagarde, is entering the International Monetary Fund. She is the first woman with the position, and takes the lead while the world is in recession and struggling with high amounts of debt. During the selection process, Lagarde made important statements concerning IMF policy. With her new position, she will continue to make important speeches and statements about the global economy and IMF policy.

Translia covers 98 languages which is much more than the current seven languages used by IMF - English, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, French, Japanese and Chinese. As the IMF holds great amounts of influence in most parts of the world, one hundred eighty-seven countries in fact, more languages are naturally needed to properly convey the message. For example, the Greek people are currently in negotiations for additional aid from the IMF. While part of the Greek people understands English, it is not their native tongue. To fully convey the message of the IMF to the Greek people, along with the politicians, it is important for them to fully understand through translation into the Greek language.

Translia's multi-lingual translation services are able to turn leader's speeches and statements into target languages from French and English that Lagarde speaks. Because of her position of power in a global organization, Lagarde's speeches, along with any discussions involving her, or other key members at the IMF, are worthy of being translated into the languages of the member countries. This way even those who do not understand French, English, or any of the other official languages of the IMF, which is common with the sheer number of countries now involved, can be included in the discussion and gain an understanding on what is going on in the world economy from the IMF standpoint.

The French translators working at Translia, in particular, can help readers to understand more background about the new chief.
