Foreign exchange exposure or risk can be classified into three types: transaction, translation and economic exposure.

Transaction exposure refers to the extent to which the future cash transactions of the firm may be affected by any changes in the currency exchange rate.

Translation exposure refers to accounting exposure. It measures the impact of changes in exchange rate on the financial statements of the group of company.

Economic exposure measures the impact of changes in exchange rate on the firms cash flows and earnings.
