    Key Elements To Know When Using French Localization Services

    When localizing into the French language, you should pay attention to the below useful tips for a successful French localization project:

    • YouTube, Facebook, and WhatsApp are France’s most used online networks.
    • The French use the metric system for weights and measures
    • In France, the all-numeric form for dates is in the order day-month-year
    • The time format is either a 24-hour clock or a 12-hour clock. Telling time in a 24-hour format is much more common in France.
    • French naming conventions arrange names as follows: first given name, middle given name(s), and family name.
    • The address format follows the recipient name, apartment number, building name, entrance number/location, street name and number, postal code, and name of city or other applicable locality, country.
    • You should expect a 15-20% expansion in the text length when handling an English-to-French translation project.
    • French is an Indo-European language that belongs to the Romance family. It is the official language of 29 countries on five continents and one of the United Nation’s six official languages.
    • French is spoken by over 275 million people worldwide.
    • The French that is spoken in Canada differ from the French that is spoken in France.
    • The 26 letters of the basic Latin script are used in French, with four diacritics on vowels (circumflex accent, acute accent, grave accent, diaeresis) and the cedilla in “ç.”
    • The French language is morphophonemic. Many of its spelling rules are likely due to consistency in morphemic patterns such as adding suffixes and prefixes, despite the fact that it contains 130 graphemes that denote only 36 phonemes.
    • The pronunciation of French words is governed by strict rules based on spelling, but French spelling is frequently based on history rather than phonology.

    What are The Differences Between Canadian French Translation and European French Translation?

    When engaging with customers in Canada and France, you need to choose the right French localization strategy to reach your target clients effectively. The main differences between the two languages are pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.

    Canadian French translation

    European French translation

    Canadian French translation

    Pronunciation

    • Canadian French still uses some classical French pronunciations that were introduced hundreds of years ago.
    • French Canadians incorporate shorter prepositions with many using “s’a” and “dins” instead of the more proper “sur la” or “dans les” spoken in European French.

    Grammar

    • In Canada, this is strictly forbidden and can result in unusual translations of many English phrases.
    • For Canadian French, similar to American English, no spaces are needed.

    Vocabulary

    • Even the rules of the road are uniquely Canadian French with “arrêt” used to designate a stop. Canadian French has decided to keep the French-Canadian translation of the word.

     

    European French translation

    Pronunciation

    • European French does not use classical French pronunciation.
    • France holds tight to using formal pronouns such as “vous” in most instances.
    • European Canadians often use “sur la” or “dans les”.

    Grammar

    • In European French translation, English slang and phrases as part of the vocabulary.
    • When translating into European French, you need to make sure that spaces are added before exclamation and question marks, colons and semi-colons.

    Vocabulary

    • These laws do not apply in France, and the two regions have differences in how they refer to simple everyday items. 
    • In France the rules of the road, the English term “stop” has been adopted universally.

     

    French Translation Services Q&A

    Several factors influence the French translation services costs. Three major factors that directly influence the French translation rate are as follows:

    • Project size: A French translation quote is typically calculated using the number of words in your source documents.
    • The service level that you select: Translation only, translation + editing, and translation + editing + proofreading are the three levels of French translation services we offer. The more steps your French translation project necessitates, the higher the cost.
    • The type of content: The complexity of the source content determines how much our French translation services will cost. Documents that require a high level of expertise cost more than documents that do not.

    Please contact us for a free French translation quote.

    The turnaround time for a French translation project, like the translation rate, is affected by a variety of factors. The level of services you choose, the project’s scope, the complexity of the content, and any other requirements all have an impact on the delivery time of your French translation project. The French translators at GTE Localize can translate around 2,000 words per day. If your project is time-sensitive, we can divide it among several translators, bringing our daily capacity to 8,000 words per day.

    Please contact our sales team for a more accurate delivery time estimate.
