XBRL Global Ledger Gets Multi-language Labels
The XBRL GL Working Group has released a package of multi-language labels to support the XBRL GL 2015 Framework that was released in March. The package provides full translations for Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Italian, Spanish, as well as partial translations for Finnish, Canadian French, and Turkish. We are seeing more entities making use of the capabilities of the XBRL GL taxonomy and as the uptake of enterprise level reporting using XBRL accelerates, the need for multi-language labels will continue to grow.
An overview document describing the translations can be found on the XBRL GL area of our specifications site.
