French: translations

Who speaks French?

French belongs to the Romance language group, part of the Indo-European language family. It is spoken by approximately 200 million people worldwide, and for the vast majority of them it is their native language.

It can be communicated with in over 50 countries worldwide. Many people speak French in Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and, of course, in France. In many sub-Saharan African countries, it is the official language. We can meet people who speak it in Congo, Chad, Nigeria, Madagascar, Seychelles, Senegal, Cameroon and Luxembourg. Interestingly, as in the case of Spanish, many international organisations use French for communication: the IFA, the European Space Agency, the OECD, NATO, the International Court of Justice, the WTO and the African Union. 

History of the French language

The French language has its origins in Latin and is still similar to it in many respects. The Celtic and Germanic languages used by people living in areas near modern France have greatly influenced its formation.
French has been an international language since the 18th century. It was believed that every educated person should know it. French was used throughout Europe during this period.

Using French in business

The French language is currently present in more than 50 countries around the world. Companies seeking to achieve recognition in the eyes of customers from France, Belgium, Switzerland or Central and South Africa must ensure that their employees are fluent in French. French speakers respond very favourably to attempts to establish business contacts in their own language. This makes them feel respected by a potential business partner.
