The Finance 150 Project is a multi-language dictionary of 150 core financial terms. Our goal is to remove complexity from financial terms and explain basic personal finance concepts in simple, colloquial language. Who is this for?
The Finance 150 Project is for people around the world who are looking for a better understanding of complex financial terms. However, we know that in order to bring this content to those people, we need to partner with banks, fintech companies, and financial inclusion organizations who are already in this space. For this reason, the Finance 150 Project has a Creative Commons 'CC By' license so that any financial institution can use, improve, and share this content with their customers. What languages are available?
Currently, we have translated our 150 financial terms into the following languages. We are hoping to continue adding more languages soon (maybe you would like to help!). English Spanish French Portuguese Hindi Chinese Swahili Arabic
How did this project start?
The Finance 150 Project started as internal research project by the Teller team. Teller is a ‘chatbot’ that helps financial institutions provide automated customer education through SMS and other messaging apps. Over time, we realized that other financial organizations might benefit from a shared, standard understanding of financial terms.
If you are a financial institution and want to provide these definitions (and additional support) through SMS, FB Messenger, or WhatsApp, please let us know. We would love to work with you to build simpler, more transparent product explanations. Special Thanks
