From global to local
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal French language. Many French words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an French speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all French-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these French-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced French translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
French language history
The history of the French language is rich. French belongs to the romance languages of the Indo-European family together with its siblings Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish.
Romance languages are descended from Vulgar (Common) Latin, which was the everyday language of the Romans. It was spread far and wide by Roman colonists, but following the dissolution of the Western Roman Empire, many conquered lands became culturally and linguistically isolated.
French evolved from the Gallo-Romance dialects of northern France and replaced Latin as the state language of France in 1539, when François I made French the official language of administration.

A gateway to the African market
Surprisingly, France is not the country with the most French speakers. The African continent withholds 50% of native French speakers in the world. Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the world’s second largest French speaking city after Paris. In fact, Africa is the continent where the number of French speakers is growing the most.
Due to the population growth in Africa, the total number of French speakers could rise to as much as 700 millions by 2050, according to demographers. It’s only fair to say that, by translating from English to French you will be able to expand your business immensely and reach a broad and global audience.

European French vs Canadian French
Is your business looking for French translation services? Well, which French do you mean? Is your intended audience in France or Canada? Don’t make the mistake of thinking the two countries speak the same French! In terms of vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation there are so many differences when it comes to Canadian French and European French.
Mastering a language is about mastering the details that make it unique. Many French speakers don't know about the little differences that separate Canadian French from European French. As shown on the right it can come down to replacing an entire word with another one. These are all factors that should be considered when translating into French as they can easily be the difference between ‘making it’ and ‘breaking it’.
