I love the requirement for "local language".

IN the world of compensation we make up words all the time. So many compensation terms have no translation into other languages that it makes it almost impossible to get your point across. fun stuff!

Agree it's not easy. Laws aren't easy to comply with here either! Best thing to do is to use a local lawyer in each country. I would advise not to use an attorney in the U.S. even though he/she may speak the language. A local lawyer can use examples to explain words that have no direct translation. And they come closer to knowing examples to use than U.S. lawyers. Don Dowling the head lawyer for International at White & Case can direct you to the right people locally.
