French translation by a certified translator

Professional French translations employing the use of certified French translators come with a fee. This is because we only use professional French translators who personally work with your online translation jobs and take no shortcuts. We always suggest using agencies providing professional translations in place of the free online translation alternatives you may be tempted to use. Free online French machine translators or French translator software have limitations and cannot detect the finer points of language. This could result in awkward translation errors. When you put a lot of effort into getting your text just the way you wanted it, your translation should reflect the hard work you put into it. Use certified translators to make sure your French translations stand out as correct, professional and accomplished.

Translation failures

Translating from English into French may feel like a rather simple exercise for both languages are quite similar. However, only native French speakers can provide you with the perfect output. If you use an amateur or automated translation, you can end up having funny translations, such as:
  • "Polish sausage" on a packaging translated as "Polissez la saucisse" (Please polish the sausage)
  • "Low fat" should not be translated as "faible en gros" (Weak in fat men)
  • "Snack" is often translated as "gâterie" in Canadian French, however in France, it has a naughty connotation
  • "Dishwasher safe" does not mean "coffre-fort pour lave-vaisselle" (A safe for a dishwasher)
  • "Made in China" is not "Fabriqué de Chinoises" (Made from Chinese women)
These are only a few examples we have come across, but there are many more out there. Do not take the risk to embarrass yourself or your company. Call a professional translator.
