At the beginning of the 17th century, French settlements were established in Eastern Canada. In the 18th century, when the British began their domination of Eastern North America, the French language was second to English in terms of trade and state communications. Eventually, the educated class learned English and became bilingual, but the majority of the French-speaking inhabitants continued to speak only French. In the province Quebec, French became the official language; until then, it was the vernacular language without legal status.
Specifics of Canadian French Translation:
- For native speakers, Canadian French is noticeably different in pronunciation and vocabulary from the French of France. As a result, a one-size-fits-all translation will not be as effective for reaching French audiences in both Canada and France. It is necessary to have a certified French Canadian translator to perform translations for the Canadian market.
- English to French Canadian translation services by ICD can effectively distinguish between audiences and help you reach target markets with separate translations.
- Canadian Federal Law requires that mandatory declarations and descriptors on packaging and labeling be bilingual; In the province of Quebec, all copy on packaging must be in English and French in type size of equal prominence.
