The world language from the heart of Europe
Translations into French
French belongs to the Romance languages and is one of the world languages along with English, Spanish and Italian. More than 300 million people on different continents speak the French language. Français is the official language in many countries – beyond France – such as Belgium, Canada, Luxembourg, Monaco, Senegal, Morocco, Cameroon and Switzerland.
In France there is a more northern language variant – the langues d’oil – and a more southern language variant – the langues d’oc. This linguistic difference between the south and north of France can also be wonderfully observed in the film: “Welcome to the Sticks“, in which a Frenchman is “transferred” to the north near Belgium instead of the south at the Cote d’Azur. France as a Grand Nation is not only very well known for its melodic and romantic language, the correct pronunciation of which is a challenge for other Europeans, but also for its diverse culture, eventful history and exquisite cuisine.
France and Germany are important allies in politics and trading partners in the economy. Due to the resulting business, there is a high demand for high-quality translations. And this is where COMLOGOS comes in as a language service provider – and as your partner for grade A translations.

Good to know: What needs to be considered when translating into French?
French has an expansion factor of 1.25 to 1.35 compared to German – in other words, the French target texts are much longer than the source texts in German. Layouts need to be adapted and require special attention from the translator and the graphic artist.
Combinations that we offer and are requested most often:
- French – German
- German – French
- English – French
- French – English
COMLOGOS delivers excellent French translations with desktop publishing (DTP):
Your brochures, catalogues, websites and instructions need to appear exactly the same in French as in the source language? Our experts will take care of the necessary layout adjustments so that differences in length in the individual languages do not cause you any trouble. Because layout and content need to be correctly set.
The layout of the target file is adapted by our graphic artists so that the original layout is retained, even if the target language requires more space due to the expansion factor. This can be realised for example by graphic adjustments. The adapted layout is then checked by our translators before the layouted translation is delivered to you on time.
