From global to local
English to French localisation
As you may know, there isn’t really one single universal French language. Many words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to a French-speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Elvish. On the other hand, there are some words that can be used in all regions but which have totally different meanings depending on which region you’re in.
Localisation goes beyond the mere translation of content. It’s about understanding the culture behind the specific language to make it look and sound more native to your target audience. So, if you’re planning on expanding your business to the French market, 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 English-French translators can deliver the right and appropriate content when translating from English to French.
SIMILARITIES & DIFFERENCES
English-French language history
Separated by only a thin line of water in Western Europe, called the “English Channel”, the history shared between Great Britain and France has always been closely related and complicated at the same time.
Originally, French and English don’t share the same roots as French is a Romance language and English is a Germanic language. However, due to the invasion by the Normans in 1066 the English language has been greatly influenced and detains since then a lot of words from the French. The language of the aristocracy was French for several hundred years and many French words were adopted into the English language as a result. About one third of the English language derives from or through various forms of French.

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.

English to French translation costs
When calculating translation prices and rates, we always look into each case individually. Complexity, volume, time frame, translation tools used, file type and other more specific needs all come into consideration for us to offer you top quality service at the best price. Of course, the language combination is also taken into account. English to French is a relatively common language combination, and therefore tends to be more affordable than some rarely requested combinations with fewer available translators. All projects are assigned to professional translators that are experts within the concerned fields, and they make sure to do the necessary research to understand the purpose, target audience, context and tone of voice of the original texts, so that these key elements come across in the final outcome. Price can also depend on the location of your audience, be it France, Quebec or Belgium, for instance.
