The French language began in Gaul (the area that is now known as France) with the invasion by Julius Caesar in 59 B.C. The Gauls then adopted the language of the Romans, known as Vulgar Latin. The language evolved and by the 16th century, French was greatly simplified. During the reign of Louis XIV, French was standardized even further and by 1714, it had become the primary language of the aristocracy. Until WWI, it remained the language of international diplomacy, but lost most of its significance to English in the mid-20th century.
Specifics of French Translation:
- French copy can be up to 20% longer than English copy so keep that in mind in terms of design and layout. We will account for this in terms of layout and text expansion during desktop publishing.
- French grammar is very similar to Spanish and Italian grammar as it includes genders, verb conjugation and some difficult-to-pronounce nasal sounds.
- French—following English is the second most common official language spoken in the world. With all the dialectal variations across the world, it’s not surprising that certified English to French translation services are on the rise.
