Professional French Translation Services and French Linguistic Services
Often requested by our clients, French is a threshold language spoken in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, many African countries, the United States, and in many other countries and regions formerly or currently governed by France. French is an official language of more than 25 countries.
French is spoken as a primary language by approximately 75 million people and as a second language by 52 million. It is one of the five official languages of the United Nations, and is the second most commonly-taught language in the world, after English.
Although the French language is spoken and written in countries across the globe, there are important differences in dialect, phrasing, vocabulary etc. depending on the culture of the country where the language is being spoken. In France the most commonly spoken dialect is Metropolitan French, but Swiss French, Belgian French, Canadian French, Lebanese French, and many other dialects and varieties of this language are spoken around the world.
