Difference between Conversion / Revaluation / Translation

Three key foreign currency concepts in Oracle GL are

  • Conversion
  • Revaluation
  • Translation
It refers to foreign currency transactions that are immediately converted at the time of entry to the ledger currency of the ledger in which transaction takes place.
Revaluation adjusts liability or asset accounts that may be materially understated or overstated at the end of a period due to a fluctuation in the exchange rate between the time the transaction was entered and the end of the period
Translation refers to the act of restating an entire ledger or balances for a company from the ledger currency to a foreign currency.


Revaluation reflects changes in conversion rates between the date of journal entry and the date of receipt/payment of the foreign currency amount. General Ledger posts the change in converted balances against the unrealized gain/loss account you specify.”

“When you revalue balances in an average balance set of books, General Ledger only revalues standard balances. When you post the revaluation journal entries to update your standard balances, the system will recompute your average balances automatically.”


Summary: When you run revaluation, a journal entry is created that either increases or decreases the functional currency amount for that account, based on the fluctuation of the exchange rate. The resulting gain or loss amounts are posted to Gain/Loss or Cumulative Translation Adjustment account you specify. This process creates a revaluation batch containing separate journal entries for each revalued foreign currency.


The revaluation adjustment is created in your functional currency, this is where the fluctuation is. The foreign currency of the transaction will stay the same, it is the functional currency balance that is adjusted.


Setups Considered:

Define an unrealized gain/loss account.

Define a revaluation rate for each currency for each period for which you want to run revaluation.
