French translations from the translation professionals
world language French
While French may have lost its status as the 'lingua franca', it remains a world language today, with approximately 230 million speakers in over 50 countries worldwide — of which 80 million are native speakers and 27 million non-native speakers. In addition to being an official language at the UN, French is also both an official and a working language of the European Union. Moreover, France, Belgium and Switzerland all rank among Germany's ten most important foreign trading partners. Along with Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian, French is one of the great Romance languages to derive from Latin. French uses few compound nouns, relying instead on far more prepositions than German. For this reason, French language texts are generally around 10% longer than their German counterparts.
Translations prepared by native French speakers
