What is foreign currency translation?

Foreign currency translation is when the subsidiary entities “translate” their functional currency to the reporting currency of the parent. Basically, they are just converting the functional currency from the subsidiary up to the reporting currency for the parent company. The reporting currency would be the currency that the company reports their financial statements in (i.e. a US company would report in U.S. Dollars).
