Even though 275 million people worldwide speak French, only 3% of the content of the internet is in their language. This disparity reveals a gap in the market that savvy businesses can capitalize on—provided they utilize the right French translation services.

At Bureau Works, we provide rapid, accurate, cost-effective translations in a wide range of languages, including French. Our high-quality translations can help you better connect with consumers and stand out from the competition. With so little French content available online, it’s an open opportunity to acquire a share of the market with the right localization strategy.

Special Considerations for French Translation

Translation to French can be deceptively complex, leading many companies to take advantage of free apps and machine-based programs. However, these don’t typically yield professional-grade results. There are a few special considerations anyone seeking French translation services needs to understand.

Dialect

Formatting

Grammar

Homophones

Formality

There’s no singular version of French that works for every country. There are about 28 different dialects that will change by country and even region within those countries. French translations can be up to 20% longer than their English counterparts. When translating between the two, it’s vital to build a buffer into the code to keep formatting intact. French has many grammatical nuances that require consideration during translation. Nouns have genders and verbs can have up to six different tenses. Sentence structure can also vary widely. French is rife with “false friends”—words in different languages that sound the same but are entirely different. Translators must avoid mixing up these terms and creating inaccurate content. Like English, French has formal and informal terms. For example, “you” can either be “vous” or “tu” depending on the formality or number of people addressed.
While French isn’t the most problematic language to translate, it’s not so simple that a business could rely on machine translation (MT) alone. At Bureau Works, MT is only one part of our overall strategy for offering the best professional-grade translation.
