French translation services in London & UK
French is a Romance language spoken as a first language by most people in France, French-speaking Switzerland, Belgium and Monaco as well as the regions of Quebec and Acadia in Canada. Second language speakers of French reside in Francophone Africa with the highest proportions being situated in Gabon, Mauritius and Cote d’Ivoir.
French is a descendant of the spoken Latin language of the Roman Empire as are languages such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Romanian. It is an official language in 30 countries, most of which form what is called, in French, La Francophonie, the community of French-speaking countries. It is an official language of all United Nations agencies, NATO, and a large number of international organisations.
The importance of French language has demographic and economic influences for major economies in the world. For example, French is the official language of Canada, which caries out major trade deals with the US.
Apart from the economic influence of French, there is a high degree of intellectual importance associated with French as a language. France has a largest R&D centre of nuclear physics and also is the site of the world's first nuclear fusion reactor.
