Target new customers in France, Belgium and beyond
French is a global language, extending far beyond the borders of France into regions like Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, and various African nations. Each of these areas has its unique dialectical nuances in the French language. For example, terms used in Canadian French, such as ‘fin de semaine’ for ‘weekend’, differ from those in European French.
This linguistic diversity means that a standard French translation may not adequately address the specificities of regional dialects. Our expertise lies in recognising and adapting to these regional variations, ensuring your content is perfectly tailored to connect with your intended Francophone audience.
Top tips to get your French translations right
When global businesses enter the French-speaking market, it’s not only the language that demands expert translation. Understanding and adhering to local regulations and legal requirements is just as essential.
For example, in France, the use of the French language is compulsory in various business communications, including user manuals, terms of service for a product or service, food labelling and contracts. This regulation aims to ensure that consumers are fully informed and protected, allowing them to make knowledgeable decisions about the products and services they purchase.
Navigating the complexities of French legal and regulatory frameworks requires more than linguistic skill; it requires cultural and legal insight. Our international consultancy services extend beyond mere language to include a deep understanding of these local specifics, ensuring your business operations in French-speaking areas are linguistically and legally sound.
