French translation service
We translate over 80 language combinations, including
French to English and English to French. In fact, English
to French translations are among our top 14 requested language
services. Our French translation service is engaged by Government
agencies, businesses and individuals across Australia and worldwide.
French is spoken by an estimated 200 million people around
the world, residing in Europe, Asia, Africa, the USA,
the Pacific territories and the Middle East. Consequently, there
are many variations of the French dialect, including Lebanese
French, Quebec French and Belgian French. When conducting an English
to French translation, it is therefore important for us to know
the geographical location of your target audience. There can be
colloquial grammar and vocabulary variations in both spoken and
written French, as is the case between European French and Quebec
French, for example. As the majority of French translations are
destined for Europe, however, they are conducted in “Standard”
or “Neutral” French.
We have at your disposal a team of highly qualified,
experienced and specialised French translators. We offer
a comprehensive French translation service, covering a variety
of specialist fields, including scientific, technical, legal,
commercial/promotional, etc. We also offer typesetting and printing
services for brochures, Power Point Presentations and other professionally
Our French translators are located both in Australia
and overseas. We assign projects to French translators
according to key factors such as accreditation, area of expertise
and the translator’s country of residence, which is particularly
important for commercial/promotional translations. We ensure that
a French translation will read as well or even better than the
source document by carefully assigning the most appropriate translator
for the project; fluency in the latest cultural and business terminology
for your target audience is essential. Our French translators hold current membership of organizations associations such as AUSIT. For translations requiring certification within Australia, we utilize translators credentialed by NAATI. Furthermore, all of our French translations undergo proofreading to ensure accuracy.
French to English and English to French typesetting considerations
When translating from one language to another,
the volume of text will either increase or decrease. This expansion
and contraction will vary depending upon subject matter. English
to French translation often results in a 20% increase in text.
Accordingly, French to English translation will decrease the volume
of text by approximately 20%. This is a general rule, but should
be factored in when preparing copy that is to be typeset following
translation. There are no other significant typesetting considerations
to be made when preparing copy for translation from French to
English or English to French.
