French translation office

Professional French translations

Around 110 million people speak French as a first language and another 190 million speak it as a second language. French, which is related to Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, among others, is an official language in 29 countries, including France, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada, Haiti and other countries in West and Central Africa.

In North Africa and Southeast Asia, meanwhile, French is a common second language, and it is spoken in many international organisations. As a result, French speakers can be found on five continents.

In each country where French is spoken, it developed slightly differently due to influences from other languages. Swiss French, for example, is influenced by Italian and German. This means that sometimes, certain terms may be unusual or even unknown in other French-speaking countries.

If you run an online shop, a translation into French might be useful for this reason:

Within a one-month period in the last quarter of 2016, 62% of people living in France bought goods online. That put France in seventh place, just ahead of Canada which occupies place eight with 60%. And Canada itself is also partly French-speaking.

Something else to consider: 37% of people in France bought clothes and sporting goods online in 2016. So if you offer fashion or lifestyle products, having your online shop translated into French might just win you many new customers.
