PRIIPS regulations translations

The Packaged Retail Investment and Insurance-based Products (PRIIPs) regulation is an EU-wide directive that impacts how information on financial and insurance products can be presented to retail investors.

Soon, asset management, insurance, and banking companies will be required to provide investors with a document called “PRIIPs Key Information Document” (KID), and then translate it into the languages spoken by its key investors.

To help clients get ready, SDL was the first translation provider to offer a complete package dedicated to PRIIPS. We provide regulatory guidance, translation services and technology tools to support the KID publishing and translations required under EU regulations.


Our language expertise and technologies will help you deliver more value to your global consumers.
