The international language of diplomacy. The language of love. One of the official languages of the UN, the WHO, the WTO, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, Interpol, the International Criminal Court, Amnesty International, the Red Cross and many other organisations, as well as official language status in over 30 countries, with widespread use in many others, French is a force to be reckoned with. As well as being widely-spoken, French is one of the world’s most widely-taught languages: a study published in 2007 put the number of French learners worldwide at over 100 million and there are learners of French in every country in the world.Get A Quote Contact Us
French is a Romance language, meaning that it is a descendant of Latin, and so closely related to Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian. However, French is noticeably different from these, largely due to differing influences, both from the languages that it replaced as the modern French language evolved, and from its Germanic neighbours. French became the official language of France quite late on, in 1539, when King François I decided it should replace Latin. From that time on, French went from strength to strength, so that, by 1634 and the foundation of the Académie Française (the official – if often ignored – authority on French usage, grammar and vocabulary, which aims to preserve the purity of the language), French was the lingua franca of educated Europe, a position it held for over 200 years, only displaced by English in the period after World War II.
The very ubiquity of French means that it is always a busy language for translation and interpreting work. Business letters; legal documents; personal certificates and statements; bills, invoices and credit notes; contracts; bank statements; medical reports – we see them all, and more. We have excellent, well qualified linguists working in French who will produce a superb translation for you.
