ADB Translation Guidelines (2019)
Asian Development Bank | January 2019
1. The Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) first Translation Framework was formulated in 2007. In December 2012, ADB approved the Update on the ADB Translation Framework, which included guiding principles for translation at ADB, a list of mandatory documents or information for translation and those for possible translation, criteria for determining the need for translation, the implementation process, resource implications, and a comparison of practices at other international finance institutions. 2. From 2017 to 2018, the ADB Department of Communications (DOC), reviewed the ADB translation practices to ensure that the 2012 translation principles are still relevant and responsive to the needs of ADB and its stakeholders. 3. The review considered ADB’s recent experience in implementing the framework. The review assessed relevant information and considered the views of internal stakeholders involved in translation-related work, as well as external stakeholders. The assessment found that the key principles underlying the framework remain valid. 4. The Translation Guidelines 2019 reiterate the principles for translation at ADB and provide general guidance on conducting translation work.
