Christmas Card 2012: Insurance Contracts and Policies

Our 2012 Christmas card was inspired by the many translation assignments we carried out for insurance companies that year.

In particular, a Swiss insurer entrusted us with the English translation of the Swiss Federal Act on Insurance Contracts (VVG). In addition, we translated directives and decisions of FOPI (the Federal Office of Private Insurance), now known as FINMA), as well as various insurance contracts, e.g. transport insurance covering risks such as the theft of trucks or goods in transit.
