Professional English to French translators
When translating from English to French, WorldAccent only employs mother-tongue professional translators with the skills, experience and specialisms appropriate for your job. They will always pay attention to style, linguistic connotations and cultural appropriateness, and are well used to working with every aspect of the written word, from catch lines to websites to technical documents.
Our use of the latest software will ensure consistency within your current French translation project and also across any related projects. It can also help to reduce costs and turnaround times.
If you wish, you may review your French translations prior to final delivery.
French: a global language
French is spoken as a first language by around 136 million people worldwide. However, there are some differences in grammar and vocabulary from place to place and continent to continent, which a competent French translation will reflect.
Although there are some regional variations, Metropolitan French is considered the standard within France. Elsewhere in Europe, the main variants are Belgian French and Swiss French.
French is also an important language in parts of North America, notably Lousiana and Canada. Canadian French actually contains more than one dialect, although is often used to mean Quebecois, by far the most prevalent variety in Canada.
African French is a catch-all name for varieties spoken in Africa by an estimated 115 million people, often as a second language. This means Africa has a good claim to be the continent with the most French speakers in the world. There are local variations, but they can be broadly grouped into three categories: French in the Maghreb, central and west African French, and French spoken in the Seychelles, Mauritius and Réunion.
More French language solutions
WorldAccent can also supply translations from French into English, as well as a range of other French language services including copywriting, proofreading and transcription.
We can also provide an integrated French typesetting service that is second to none. We apply the same high standards to translating your visual design from English to French as we do to the text itself. What's more, combining translation and typesetting in this way offers efficiencies and economies over carrying them out separately.
From advising on the language implications of your initial designs through to producing print-ready PDFs, our London-based studio is accomplished at producing polished French layouts. We have all the technical French DTP knowledge you would expect, from an in-depth understanding of French typographic conventions to an authoritative knowledge of InDesign, Quark Xpress, Illustrator, Word, Photoshop, Powerpoint, Acrobat and more.
Two French points of interest:
- The International Organization of the Francophonie brings together countries and territories that have French as the primary language or that have a significant link to the French language or culture.
- Some British city names are different in French translation, London is “Londres” and Edinburgh is “Édimbourg”.
