French Translation Services

French has a long history as an international language. Until recently it was the international language of diplomacy and is still a working language in many organizations such as the UN, the International Olympic committee and the Red Cross. Over 280 million people speak French and it is an official language in numerous countries, including France, Canada and Belgium, as well as many African and South East Asian regions where former colonies and religious missions have had a significant cultural impact. Our French translation services can enable you to access this large foreign market.

Regional Variations

The two main variations of French used for commercial purposes are French for France and French for Canada, although other variants such as Creole are often requested. The main differences in French for Canada and French for France derive from the differing vocabulary as a result of geography (proximity to other cultures), history and government legislation.

Belgian French Translation Services

Belgian French is the variety of French spoken mainly in the French Community of Belgium, alongside related minority regional languages such as Walloon, Picard, Champenois and Gaumais. The French spoken in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi, which were formerly Belgian colonies, can also be considered an offshoot of Belgian French. Belgian French and the French of Northern France are almost identical, but there are a few distinct phonological and lexical differences.

Canadian French Translation Services

Canadian French is an umbrella term referring to the various dialects of French that evolved in Canada and which are spoken there to this day. French is the mother tongue of nearly seven million Canadians, a figure constituting roughly 22% of the national population. At the federal level it has co-official status alongside English. Provincially, it tends to have more limited status, except in the case of New Brunswick, which is officially bilingual (with English), and in Quebec, where it is the only official language. French is also co-official in the three territories.

Quebec French is spoken in Quebec. Closely related varieties are spoken by francophone communities in Ontario, Western Canada, Labrador and in the New England region of the United States, and differ primarily by their greater conservatism. The overwhelming majority of francophone Canadians speak this dialect.

Swiss French Translation Services

Swiss French is the name used for the variety of French spoken in the French-speaking area of Switzerland known as Romandy. There is not a single standardized Swiss French language: different cantons (or even different towns in some cases) will use different vocabulary, often derived from the local regional language or from German, since Switzerland is predominantly German-speaking. Approximately 1.5 million people speak Swiss French.
