French translation tips
French Canadian vs. European French
When translating your content into either Canadian French or European French, you should decide early on which market you’re localizing for. French Canadian is distinct from the French spoken in France. Just because your content is localized into French doesn’t mean it will be understood by both audiences. As such, you shouldn’t make the mistake of using one language for both markets. Subtle discrepancies such as appropriate word choices (e.g. the term for shoes: chaussures v. souliers) can be a driving factor in forming quality relationships with customers.
Translation text expansion
French translations are often lengthier than their English counterparts, as translations from English into French require about 15–20% more words. This unique linguistic feature should be taken into consideration when localizing your website or app into French.
