    The experienced translators of the French translation bureau of Urgent Vertalen

    Our French translation bureau has the right certifications and stands out because of our team of experienced translators, who are fluent not only in their native language, but also in the target language. These translators are often experts in specific sectors, such as law, medicine, or technology, so they do not shy away from correctly translating specialist terminology and jargon. With certifications such as ISO 17001 you are assured of extra confidence and quality assurance, which is crucial when you are looking for accurate, correct and smooth translations.

    The French language in a nutshell

    French is the official language in 29 countries and has different dialects and influences. This means that the French language is spoken by 285 million people worldwide, including in Europe, America, Africa and Asia. The fact that the language has been able to spread so widely is partly due to French colonization. French is originally a Romance language, a descendant of Latin, just like Spanish, Italian and Romanian, among others.

    The first known text in Old French dates from the ninth century. What many people may not know is that the French language has had a lot of influence on English through French rule and the use of French by the nobility. Furthermore, French is one of the three working languages of the European Union, alongside English and German.

    The benefits of working with our certified French translation bureau

    Working with a professional French translation bureau offers great added value. Consider, for example, companies that want to expand into the French-speaking market or institutions that work with French-speaking communities. When you work with our French translation bureau, you are not only assured of translations that are linguistically correct, but that are also tailored to your target group based on the application of localization. And this is precisely what it takes to successfully convey your message and build trust with your French-speaking partners and clients.

    The enormous value of native French speaking translators

    By using native French speaking translators for translations from and into French, authentic and natural texts are guaranteed. These translators understand subtle meanings and nuances, and are familiar with the cultural context that is essential to properly conveying your message.

    They are also aware of the latest changes and trends in the French language, which in turn translates into current and relevant translations. Whether it concerns literary works, legal documentation or a technical manual, our native French speaking translators know how to preserve the essence of your message, even after it has been converted into the target language.

    Sworn translations from and into French

    Sworn translations are a specialty within the translation profession. These translations are legally recognized and are often required by government bodies, courts, and in legal proceedings. Sworn translators have an official status, which means that their translations are considered legally valid and reliable. For documents such as marriage certificates, wills, or business licenses, a sworn translation is not only necessary, but also guarantees additional legal protection.

    Because sworn translations are subject to strict standards of accuracy and confidentiality, a professional French translation bureau will always employ sworn translators. These translators are not only proficient in the French language, but also have an in-depth understanding of legal terminology and procedures within various legal areas. Moreover, they meet all legal requirements to provide sworn French translations and have been sworn in by the court.
