Currency Translation

accounting/foreign exchange

The recording in accounts of assets (or liabilities) in one currency when they are actually in another. No actual exchange of funds takes place. The World Bank, for example, translates all their assets and liabilities into U.S. dollar amounts, regardless of the actual currency in which they are denominated.
