We offer high-quality translations from and into French.

One of the most common languages that our agency translates into and from is French. Of course, the majority of these translations are into French for France, but we also employ Belgian and Canadian French translators for projects that are being translated into those languages. All our translators are native speakers of the target language, which ensures they will use the specific terminology for that country.

To request a free quote, please email us your text or fill in the quote request form on the right. A project manager will review the document and send you a quotation as soon as possible (generally within the hour). Please specify the desired delivery time for your translation and indicate whether the text is intended for a French Belgian, French Canadian or French target audience.

Specialised translators for different subjects

Each translator specialises in a different subject, so they are familiar with the specific terminology used in that area. Legal documents are only translated by legal specialists, IT documents by technical specialists, marketing texts by translators with a flowing writing style and so forth. We also have medical specialists, financial translators, scientific translators and many more. Our translation agency can also supply you with sworn, certified translations, (court) interpreters and apostilles for translations that will serve as legal documents abroad.

About the French language

French is one of the languages derived from Latin. These languages are collectively referred to as the Romance languages. French also became an important language in Africa as a result of the colonisation of large parts of Africa by France, particularly in the 19th Century. French has been the language of the European elite for a long time. Over these times, many French words have also been taken up by the English language. It is also one of the six official languages of the United States and one of the 21 official European Union languages.
