French Medical Translation
Our medical translation teams have been carefully vetted and put together to ensure that they cover a broad range of areas within medicine, ensuring the delivery of the highest quality French medical translation service.
The strength and breadth of our team’s experience allows us to place your work with individuals who have exactly the skill set and experience to give you precise and accurate French medical translations.
Our approach is to build specific teams of French medical translators for each client’s work, or project. We carefully vet our French medical translators before they arrive on our database, collecting references and test translations, and our recruitment process is designed to really drill down on the exact areas of specialization within medicine.
Areas of expertise are then stored as keywords, searchable by our Project Management Team.
The testing process is designed to ensure that these specializations are backed up by good translation skills and the right terminological knowledge in French.
Once registered, our French medical translators are subject to ongoing quality assurance processes, which allow us to track translator performance over time, and to develop a well rounded picture of their expertise, strengths and weaknesses.
French is one of the most widely translated languages in the world (both into French and out of French). We work extensively with the French language and benefit enormously from having an office in Paris and French team.
Although this means that many of our French linguists are located in France, we also have a large number of mother tongue French translators and interpreters dispersed all around the world.
Our global Project Management presence and dispersed teams of French translators means that we can offer you real advantages where you have tight turnaround requirements.
French is one of a group of languages that make up the Romance languages group and is spoken as a sole first language in France, the Romandy region in Switzerland, Wallonia and Brussels in Belgium, the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick (Acadia region) in Canada, Monaco, the Acadiana region of the U.S. state of Louisiana, northern parts of U.S. states such as New Hampshire and Vermont in the New England region, and by ample communities elsewhere. Other talkers of French, who speak it as a second language, are established all over the world, but the largest numbers will mostly be found in French speaking Africa. In Africa, French is frequently found in Gabon, 80% fluency, followed by Mauritius with 78%, Algeria at 75% and Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal where it is around 70% fluency. Approximations suggest French has 110 million native people who speak French to go along with 190 million who are second language speakers.
The French language derives from the Italic vocalised Latin language that was used in the Roman Empire, the same as languages such as Romanian, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Lombard, Sardinian, Catalan and Sicilian. Its relatives in terms of likeness are the other languages that have been spoken in times past in northern France and Belgium or the “langues d’oïl”, which French has largely supplanted. French has also been affected by exposure to the Celtic language used in Roman Gaul and by Frankish used by post-Roman raiders. In the current day, and mainly due to France’s overseas empire, there are various languages that are French-based creole including Haitian.
The French language is endorsed in 29 different countries, most of which form la francophonie, also known as the group of French-speaking countries. It is also one of the approved languages of the United Nations (UN) agencies as well as a large number of familiar and respected international organizations.
77 million people inside of Europe speak French as a native according to France’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs statistics. Externally, the most French speakers are found in Canada where it is 25% of the population, mostly in Quebec, Belgium with 45% of the population, Switzerland with 20% of its populace and Luxembourg. The Ministry’s numbers also identified French as the second most articulated language in Europe In 2013, after German and ahead of English. 23% of non-Francophone Europeans will have some competency in how to speak French, making the total about 145.6 million people in Europe. As a result of France and Belgium’s pervasive colonial desires between the 1700s until the 19th century, French was seeded in its colonies in the Caribbean, Africa, Polynesia, the Americas, Southeast Asia and the Levant.
A demographic calculation led by the Réseau Démographie and the de l’Agence universitaire de la francophonie Université Laval, said There will be roughly 500 million people communicating in French by 2025 and an additional 650 million people (or approximately 7%) of the entire world’s inhabitants by 2050. Other Estimates carried out in 2013 have proposed that the number of French speakers will reach 1 billion by 2060.
As mentioned before, French is one of the Romance languages, and this means that it has its roots principally in Vulgar Latin, a language that grew from the Gallo-Romance idioms that were spoken in the north of the country.
From the commencement of the 17th century to about the 1950s French was the most central language of diplomacy and international relationships. English has now usurped the role that French used to hold as after WW2 as the USA became a overriding world power.
French shares more than a few features of its grammar with most of the other Romance family, including retaining only two grammatical genders, it has the growth of grammatical articles from the loss of Latin’s declensions to its Latin demonstratives, and it also has new tenses formed from auxiliaries
Over the years, French declared word has settled into subject–verb–object order, but if the objective word is a pronoun, it will almost always precede the verb. Some types of sentences inside the language do allow for or will sometimes happen to require other word orders, inversion of the verb and subject like “Parlez-vous français ?” when asking a question when normal structure would be “Vous parlez français ?” Even if both questions really mean the same thing but a rising inflection is always used on both of them.
French has remained a tremendously important diplomatic language, with it being one of the working languages of, a large part of the Council of Europe, NATO, the UN Secretariat the International Olympic Committee, the Organization of American States, Co-operation and Development European Commission, the International Court of Justice World Trade Organization, as well as the Organization for Economic the Eurovision Song Contest, the European Space Agency and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
