Understanding the French language and culture 

French is an Indo-European language of the Romance family. It, like other Romance languages, developed from the Latin of the Roman Empire. Its closest cousins are the languages traditionally spoken in northern France and southern Belgium.

French is the fifth most spoken language in the world, behind Mandarin Chinese, English, Spanish, and Arabic, with an estimated 300 million native speakers. Furthermore, it is the only language outside English that is spoken across all five continents.

These facts easily make French one of the most in-demand languages in the translation industry. This is even further reinforced by the fact that French is one the 6 main languages of United Nations alongside Arabic, Chinese, English, Russian, and Spanish.

Challenges of French to English legal translation

In a general sense, the challenges of legal translation are the same regardless of the language involved. This is due to the highly strict and accurate nature of legal documents. Other major challenges translating legal documents to and from French include:

Differences in legal system

Legal systems may differ from region to region, and even from country to country. This poses a challenge in finding the best way to explain certain legal terminology used in the target language as clearly and accurately as possible.

The sensitive nature of legal materials

Legal documents are extremely sensitive on several levels. For one thing, there is no room for mistranslation. None! Any slight discrepancy can detrimentally impact the legal process. Translation must be extremely precise and accurate.

Tight deadlines

Deadlines are promises that cannot be broken. And in legal translation, this cannot be emphasized enough. The sensitive nature of the legal process necessitates extreme punctuality and leaves absolutely no room for latency.

Thrive in France with our proven translation process

France will always be one of the highest-profile business destinations in Western Europe for organisations in a wide range of sectors. That, in turn, routinely necessitates the translation of documents into multiple languages.

It is imperative to ensure, however, that such documents are translated absolutely accurately. Serious sums of money can be tied up in agreements between organisations large and small, so you must ensure all parties will understand the English and French variants of your documents the same way.

This helps to explain why we won’t take any risks when you request French translation services from our team at LingArch. Not only will we suitably protect client confidentiality, for instance, through binding non-disclosure agreements, but we also only entrust genuine native speakers with the task of actually carrying out every translation.
