French Translation and Interpreting

Why good French Translation and Interpreting is crucial

France is one of the UK’s main trading partners, accounting for around £19 bn of exports annually.  In addition, there are another 30 countries where French is an official language.

Some of these French-speakers may speak English also, but it is incorrect to assume that this will be sufficient for business meetings or legal situations.

French translation and interpreting for business

The worst problem for UK firms dealing with French suppliers or clients is that language difficulties can lead to confusion or to delay. There are many “false friends” – words that seem similar to English words, but which are different, giving rise to potential miscommunications. Dealing with French businesses need not be difficult if you have access to the professional translation and interpreting team at Accutranslate. We are familiar with French business practices and customs, and can help you communicate easily with your business contacts.

From translation of a French brochure or business letter to interpreting at meetings, Accutranslate can smooth the way to a swifter and more productive business relationship with your colleagues in France.

French legal interpreting and translation

However good a French-speaker’s English skills are, being a witness or defendant in a court case is a very stressful and difficult situation, that even a native speaker would find challenging.  For a non-native speaker this is amplified by lack of familiarity with our legal process.

There are many examples of court cases that have foundered due to poor interpreting and translation – at worst a miscarriage of justice may result. To avoid any potential mishaps it is vital to get a good translation of all legal documents and to ensure that the interpreting is of the highest standard.
