Journal Information

Title: Language Perils
Publisher: MultiTech Communications, Inc
Description: Language Perils addresses terminology used in a wide variety of the world's languages in insurance, reinsurance, risk management, employee benefits, healthcare, and related fields such as law and financial services. From time to time, we also examine terminology in non-insurance sectors, such as politics and technology, when professionals in insurance and related fields have a business interest in concepts developed in those sectors. By focusing on words, terms, and concepts within one language and across two or more languages, our e-journal seeks to untangle the apparently confusing and to translate the unfamiliar into the familiar. Our goal: to bring clarity to the increasingly complex and increasingly multilingual insurance marketplace. Published periodically, Language Perils uses an unorthodox approach to inform and engage our readers. Some articles describe market practices through local terminology, another compares coverage in two markets, one argues in favor of a reformulation of the definition of a familiar concept, others define relatively new concepts or complex terminology, another allows readers to contribute to a listing of insurance terminology synonyms.
