French Translation Services

French is one of the most commonly spoken and learned languages in the world. There are over 500 million people who speak it at least to some degree, with 220 million of them being native speakers. The number is only due to increase because of the fact that many French speakers live in Africa, where the popularity is set to keep increasing in the upcoming decades.

However, French is also often used as the language of business rather than English, and if you’re considering working with such a company, using professional French translation services is of utmost importance.

At Lighthouse Translations, we understand just how crucial it is for documents to be translated correctly, which is why we work with several native speakers who can accurately translate any piece that lands before them.

French Translation Services by Native Professionals

Translation is about more than just taking a dictionary and translating word by word. To be a good translator, you need to know the nuances of the language you’re translating to and the country the documentation is going to. That’s precisely why we work with native speakers from several French-speaking countries.

French used, for example, in Canada, will not be the same as French used in France, Belgium, or the Democratic Republic of the Congo. That’s not to mention that even within the same country, there might be regional differences that affect how a certain word or phrase is interpreted.

Our native professional translators understand the differences and can provide you with a translation that is not only linguistically but also culturally accurate.

Our Translations Include

Simultaneous Interpretation

During negotiations or any other event where there are two or more parties communicating in different languages, in this case, one of them being French, using simultaneous interpretation (SI) could be the right course of action. Our interpreters will translate what is being said in real time so that all parties can be aware of the meeting’s progress and share their opinions.

Among our simultaneous interpretation services, you can find business meeting interpretation, escort interpretation and telephonic interpretation.

Conference Interpretation

Conferences, seminars and other events of such kind are other occasions where French translation services can come very much in handy.

With our remote conference interpretation services, you can make sure that all of your participants, regardless of what language they speak, understand what is being said. All they have to do is log into the RSI platform, and the assigned interpreter will take care of the rest.

Translation Equipment Rentals

Do you already have a translator but lack the professional equipment? At Lighthouse Online, one of our top priorities is to make sure that we’re using high-quality hardware to minimize as much as we can the risk of a malfunction.

With our digital equipment rental services, now you too can gain access to top-notch gear such as microphones, headsets, and soundproof booths so that nothing stands in your way of delivering quality French translation services.

Business Translations

Are you looking to expand your network to include French-speaking customers and business associates? In that case, French translation services are a must, as you will more than likely have to prepare business documentation.

In business, it’s crucial to ensure to get your point across, and if there is a communication barrier, doing so can be difficult. With French translation services, you’re ensuring that the message you’re trying to convey is easily understood, allowing you to access new opportunities that wouldn’t be reachable without quality translation.

In our business translation services offer, you can find:

  • Accounting documentation
  • Business agreements
  • Business correspondence
  • Financial documents
  • Marketing documents

Legal Document Translations

Legal translation is one of the more challenging types of translation, as it requires knowledge of the other country’s legal system as well as legal language. At Lighthouse Translations, we understand how important it is for the translated documentation to be compliant with the local laws, which is why our professional translators cooperate with a network of paralegals, attorneys, and other experts from the legal field to ensure accuracy.

Some of the documents that can be translated into French with our legal documentation translation services include:

  • Birth certificates
  • Contracts and agreements
  • Immigration process documentation
  • Manuals
  • Patents

Medical Translations

Medical translation is another area where specialistic knowledge and accuracy are essential. Since not every translator is qualified to translate medical documentation, we make sure to work with a number of professionals who have years of experience working in this translation field and can prepare translations that are accurate and mindful of words and expressions that cannot be directly translated from English into French.

Another challenge of medical translation is HIPAA compliance. At Lighthouse Translation, however, you don’t have to worry about that, as the security of our clients’ information is of utmost importance to us, and we do all we can to ensure that it’s not compromised.

Documents that qualify for our medical translation services include:

  • Clinical trial documentation
  • Medical device instructions
  • Patient medical records

Website Translations

In this day and age, having an online presence in the form of a website is a must for any business. Many people, however, don’t realize just how powerful in reaching new customers a properly designed site can be – and that includes having different language versions.

With our website translation services, you will be able to reach customers in French-speaking countries who might not be fluent enough in English to comfortably browse through the English version of your site.
