Professional French translators
Competent translators pay attention not only to accuracy, but also to style, linguistic connotations and cultural appropriateness.
So for English to French translations, WorldAccent will only employ a mother tongue professional linguist with the skills, experience and specialisms appropriate for the subject matter of your document, be it technical, legal, financial or whatever else.
The selected translator will be fully briefed on the context of the assignment and the role of the document within your communication strategy.
Our use of the latest software will ensure consistency within your current French translation project and also across any related ones. It can also help to reduce costs and turnaround times.
Naturally a round of review for any preferential feedback on your translations is included prior to final delivery.
What can we translate into French?
We can handle most electronic document formats directly.

The more common files we deal with are InDesign, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, HTML, XML, Illustrator, Quark Xpress, Photoshop and subtitles.

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 between countries. This means care should be taken when selecting French translators, according to the target audience.
Although there are some regional variations, Metropolitan French is considered the standard within France. The other main variants in Europe are Belgian and Swiss.
French is also an important language in parts of North America, notably Lousiana and Canada. Canadian French actually contains more than one dialect, although it is often used to mean Quebecois, by far the most prevalent.
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 which can be broadly grouped into three geographical areas: the Maghreb; central and west Africa; and the Seychelles, Mauritius and Réunion.
