French translation services can help you reach 230 million people worldwide.
And not just in Paris, either. Native French speakers can be found all over the world, in fact, from Montreal (pictured) to Dakar.
If that sounds staggering, maybe it’s because it is. (In fact, the entire population of the U.S. is about 330 million.)
Now, obviously, not every one of those people is going to become a customer.
But depending upon your product or service, you could tap into a huge market just by translating your documents into French.
Texts such as contracts, web copy, and user interfaces are all important. And if you’re serious about purchasing French translation services, then you should talk to potential vendors to find out what they offer.
Big agencies may lack the personal attention to projects, for example, that small businesses like ours are able to offer. (Of course, they can offer massive scale.)
But that doesn’t mean you should automatically jump at the lowest quote you get, either. Quality comes at a higher price. (Notice we said higher, not high.)
RedLine’s French Translation Services
Many of RedLine’s translation projects are from or into French. In fact, company owner Matthew Kushinka trained at the graduate level in French and English translation. So when he founded RedLine in 2011, he already had a network of French colleagues in the industry.
RedLine still works with many of these skilled linguists today. They’re efficient, but they’re not cogs in a machine. In other words, they’re not interchangeable.
And we like that because it lets us assign projects to the right translator, not just any translator.
The translators who work with us are native French and French Canadian. We regularly do translation work for firms marketing in France and for manufacturers selling in Canada.

France is where the majority of native-language speakers (also called L1 speakers) are found. About 67 million live in France, while another 6 million reside in Belgium and Switzerland.
As a result, Europe is a huge market for translation services. (Do you need German, Spanish, or Dutch translation? If so, see RedLine’s 20 working languages.)
French is one of Canada’s two official languages, but the majority of Canada’s French speakers are in Québec.
Translation is key in Canada. In fact, companies selling products there must include label information in both languages.
The majority of the world’s French speakers live in Africa. Countries such as Mali, Chad, and Senegal use French as an official language.
