Certified French Translations for use in France

Can Translate Fast help me with English to French certified (sworn) translations?

Yes, the translation will be prepared by an authorised translator, a French Ministry of Justice-registered professional who has passed a state-required qualification. We have a number of satisfied customers who ordered a sworn French translation from us and received it very quickly.

Could you tell me more about certified (sworn) French translations?

French documents must be written or translated into French by a sworn translator before they can be presented to the French authorities, register offices, universities, notaries, courts or solicitors.
A certified (sworn) translation is required for any document written in a foreign language and requested by an official authority.
The Ministry of Justice appoints “Expert Translators before the Court of Appeal” to perform certified translations. These so-called sworn translators, also known as “Expert Translators” are linguists who are authorised to translate and verify the correctness of a translation.
We have authorised French translators, so if you have been advised that you must have a certified (sworn) translation of a document submitted in France, Translate Fast Ltd can assist you.

Translation of French documents: how do you get the best results?

In addition to its complex grammar, vocabulary, and poetic tradition, French is also one of the most difficult European languages to learn.
Once we analyse your document, we match its content with the appropriate French translators.

Can Translate Fast assist with localisation and transcreation?

Yes, Translate Fast can provide localisation services to ensure your content is tailored to the local culture and context. In addition, we can provide transcreation services to create engaging translations that capture the original message and intent.
Translating your website into your target audience’s language is essential to ensuring your business reaches as many people as possible.
In terms of international marketing, the importance of having your website content translated into French is invaluable.
Business users around the world benefit from professional French translation services by being able to communicate in the native language of their target market.
Furthermore, French translations help organisations target their marketing more precisely.
By understanding the nuances of the language, professional French translations can help businesses tailor their message to better engage with their target audience and make a more meaningful connection. This can help them stand out in the marketplace and build a loyal customer base.

What are the benefits of having my content translated into French?

A website is the first thing potential customers look for when they want to learn more about your company and what you offer. Businesses risk losing potential clients if their website is only written in English.
Professional French translations can ensure that the website and other forms of communication accurately reflect the company’s mission and values. In addition, they can provide a more accurate representation of the products and services offered. This can create a more positive and engaging customer experience, helping to build trust and loyalty.

French translation versus French localisation and transcreation: what’s the difference?

Getting to know the differences between translation and localisation in French is crucial for businesses looking to reach new audiences.
Translation is simply the task of converting one language into another, for instance, translating correspondence from English into French.
On the other hand, localisation means adapting a product or content to fit the culture of the country where it is being sold. Translating is like giving directions over the phone, while localisation is more like giving directions with a map. Translating conveys the basic information, but localisation provides the context necessary to understand the message entirely.
Transcreation is a more creative approach, where the text is adapted to the target language and culture while keeping the message and tone of the original text.

Is there a company that offers the best French document translation services?

Translation agencies that use native speakers with substantial translating experience and specific subject matter expertise are the only ones that can offer high-quality, professional French document translation services. These translation agencies are the best choice for any project requiring accurate and nuanced French translation, ensuring the highest possible standards for the target audience. At Translate Fast Ltd, we translate documents of all types in more than 200 languages.
