French-speaking countries worldwide
Most spoken language in the world
French is a global language
Parlez-vous francais? If you respond ‘Oui’ then you might be one of the 300 million French speakers living in the world today. The French Culture has gained a great influence around the world throughout history and ranks today as the 5th most spoken language in the world. It’s the official language of 29 countries which puts it in second place behind English. It is also one of the most commonly spoken languages in all countries.
If you add up all the French speakers in Europe, you come to around 80 million, which makes French the third most widely spoken mother tongue in Europe. The mathematicians among you will already have established that European French speakers constitute approximately 40% of the French speakers around the world.
Open your business to new markets
A gateway to the African market
Surprisingly, France is not the country with the most French speakers. The African Continent withholds 50% of Native French Speakers in the World. Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the world’s second largest French speaking city after Paris. In fact, Africa is the continent where the number of French speakers is growing the most. Due to the population growth in Africa, the total number of French speakers could rise to as much as 700 millions by 2050, according to demographers. It’s only fair to say that, by translating from German to French you will be able to expand your business immensely and reach a broad and global audience.
Similarities & differences
French-German language history
Even though France and Germany are closely related, due to the fact that they are neighbours, they differ a lot when it comes to language. French is a Romance language of the Indo-European family, unlike German that belongs to the Germanic branch.
Romance languages are descended from Vulgar (Common) Latin, which was the everyday language of the Romans. It was spread far and wide by Roman colonists, but following the dissolution of the Western Roman Empire, many conquered lands became culturally and linguistically isolated.
French evolved from the Gallo-Romance dialects of northern France and replaced Latin as the state language of France in 1539, when François I made French the official language of administration.
Formal vs. informal
Levels of formality
Learning French is no piece of cake. If you want to master the French language, you have to be aware of the different levels of formality. French, unlike some other languages, can be divided into six independent registers, from the very formal at the top to the very slang at the bottom. The three that most native french-speakers learn in school are: soutenu (formal), courant (standard) and familier (informal). But there are of course other forms of the language that are less known and non-official like “slang”, which is called “verlan” in french.
Each register has its own purpose and its own vocabulary and even, sometimes, its own grammatical structure. That is why it’s important to find a translator who is aware of these differences and knows how to master them in order to communicate in the right language to the right audience. Indeed, different situations and people call for different registers.
|Standard French||Slang - “Verlan”||English|
|C’est fou !||C’est ouf !||This is crazy!|
|Trop bizarre||Trop chelou||Too weird|
|C’est lourd||C’est relou||This is annoying|
|J’aime la musique||Je kiffe la musique||I love music|
|Je suis énervé||Je suis vénère||I am angry|
|Canadian French||European French||English|
|Crème glacée||Glace||Ice cream|
Canadian French vs. European French
Is your business looking for French translation services? Well, which French do you mean? Is your intended audience in France or Canada? Don’t make the mistake of thinking the two countries speak the same French! In terms of vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation there are so many differences when it comes to Canadian French and European French.
Mastering a language is about mastering the details that make it unique. Many French speakers don't know about the little differences that separate Canadian French from European French. As shown on the left it can come down to replacing an entire word with another one. These are all factors that should be considered when translating from German to French as they can easily be the difference between ‘making it’ and ‘breaking it’.
From global to local
German to French localisation
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal French Language. The French language knows many different variations and is undergoing many changes in the world. Many French words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to a French speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all French-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these French-speaking countries, it's important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced German to French translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
Germany’s top 5 trading partners
Germany has the strongest economy in Europe and the second largest export economy in the world. Their solid economy is based on exports of high-quality manufactured goods along with strong trading partnerships with some of the major players in the global economy.
It is no surprise to see that France takes the second place in Germany’s Top 5 Trading Partners. Indeed, The Treaty on Franco-German Friendship (known as the Élysée Treaty), signed on 22 January 1963 is the symbol of the relationship forged between France and Germany and the proof that their economies are extremely intertwined and complementary.
2,737 French companies are present in Germany (accounting for 30% of those present abroad in the eurozone) and employ 363,000 people. According to French National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), they generate turnover of €147 billion. Meanwhile, 3,200 German companies are established in France, employing 310,000 people and generating turnover of €141 billion.
