French Translation Services
Professional French translation needs to be dynamic to facilitate language evolution. These translations must be consistent and efficient. Translators are usually trained to translate professionally while maintaining the original tone of the source document.
These translators are native speakers. However, well-qualified linguistic specialists are also hired to perform translations. These experts use in-house software and digital tools to amplify the translation quality. The technological assistance identifies the skipping of tenses, grammatical errors, and active/passive voice balance to complete the translation. The software are API-based to track the progress of each source translation as necessary.
French Area of expertise
France has consistently been the top contender for worldwide tourism. It was also the first country to introduce a vaccine passport to curb coronavirus transmission and open its tourism borders. A professional French translation service is an excellent option to translate travelling guidelines, menus, and the likes.
Who doesn’t seek advanced studies? Assuming you speak French frequently, you are more likely to be accepted in international business schools and universities. Furthermore, books and journals are also translated into the French language to teach at local schools and research centres.
French is spoken in three cities of Strasbourg, Brussels, and Luxembourg. These cities are the headquarters of the European Union, so the use of the French language is quite obvious. You will also find French is widely spoken in sub-offices of UNESCO and the Red Cross. Almost every form of communication in the International Court of Justice consists of French.
Which qualities are found in French translators?
Many people take pride in speaking French, especially the French. Say that two times! However, individuals hired to perform a professional French translation must not act superior because they are experts in the language. Practice humility to not scare off clients! Feel proud in the translation but not in the linguistic grasp.
A French translator must be accurate given the verb conjugations, infinitive verb tense, and adjective transitions. The translations performed must be exactly as in the source document. No doubt it seems intimidating! However, it is achievable by breaking off the phrases. Separating the sentences provides insight into the preface to base the translation on.
A good writer
Assuming you understand the grammatical tenses, you must be an excellent translator to transfer them onto paper. An excellent writer knows how to keep the translation engaged with a cohesive content flow. The translation must sit well with the targeted reader, or it will be rejected immediately.
How to translate the French Language?
French has eight tenses which are incredibly similar when translated. These are present, imperfect, simple past, simple future, perfect, pluperfect, past anterior, and future anterior. These tenses are interchangeable, which is the least we can say about English grammar tenses.
Masculine/ Feminine Adjectives
The adjectives in the French language are different for each gender. The adjectives are made feminine by adding an extra e at the end of the world. For example:
He is petite is “Il est petit.”
She is petite is “Elle est petite.”
A similar rule applies to feminizing the noun, such as fiancé to fiancée (woman).
The verb conjugates heavily in the French language. There is a simple technique to learning to conjugate, which comes with practice. As mentioned below, the verb conjugates with the casual and formal you. It conjugates separately for plural he-she pronouns.
I: Je mange
You: Tu mange/vous mangez
He/She: Ill/elle mange or ils/ells mangent
We: Nous mangeons
Interesting facts about French
French contribution to other languages
French contributes one-third to the English language. More than 50,000 words in the English language have French origins, such as a bureau, naïve, décor, café, and restaurant. French carries a lot of influence over the language because of long-term trade and discoverers travelling the seas to expand their kingdom.
French is a bureaucratic language.
The French language is widely used in many diplomatic bodies. The United Nations has made the French language official alongside Arabic, Chinese, and English. French is also dominantly spoken in many European bodies, though it is mainly used in bureaucratic documents alongside German. French is also used in WHO, NATO, and UNESCO.
The French Academy
The institution responsible for supervising French use and evolution is called L’Académie Française. It was established in 1634. Some of its prominent decisions include switching “oignon” to “ognon.” The committee removed the circumflex over I and u, thus changing the spelling of many words in the process.
The French Culture
Browse the Louvre
Is it possible to spend 100 days browsing a museum? The answer is yes. The Louvre Museum in Paris is home to some of the most antique artwork present in the world. It will take three months to browse the complete museum if you decide to spend 30 seconds on each art piece.
Snail is on the menu… every day.
Some of us would argue if the snail is an edible delicacy or not. The answer is simple to a French citizen who will eat around 500 snails every year. They are enjoyed at parties, fancy dinners, and a delicacy during the holidays. The French cook snails in butter and garlic. Chef’s kiss!

Shortest European Monarchy
The king who ruled over France for the shortest time was Louis XIX. His French reign lasted 20 minutes, after which he was abdicated. His story is similar to Luis Filipe, whose father could not survive a murder attempt. During the 20 minutes Filipe was alive, he reigned over Portugal and was later murdered.
