French Canadian Language Translation, Interpreting, Transcription Services


History of French-Canadian Language

During the mid-18th century, Canadian colonists born in French Canada expanded across North America and colonized various regions, cities, and towns. Today, the majority of French Canadians live across North America, including the United States and Canada. This immigration has resulted in the speaking of French-Canadian throughout North America and the development of various different dialects that make this a unique language. Some of our countries biggest cities (Detroit, New Orleans), have large French- Canadian speaking populations creating the necessity for interpreting and translating. In addition, major Canadian cities such as Toronto and Montreal provide huge populations of French-Canadian speakers, promoting an even greater need for interpreting and translating services.

Understanding the French-Canadian Language

Canadian French distinguishes itself from the French spoken in France by the great quantity of words that came from aboriginal languages. Mutual intelligibility of Quebec French with Metropolitan French is a matter of heated debates among many linguists. If a comparison can be made, the differences between both dialects are probably larger than those between standard American and standard British English, and those between Mexican Spanish and European Spanish. It is also comparable to the distance between Croatian and Serbian, or spoken Norwegian and Swedish, or Czech and Slovak. Francophone Canadians abroad have to modify their accent somewhat in order to be easily understood. The differences in the two French dialects are as huge as the distance between France and Quebec. The language construction, vocabulary and pronunciation are all starkly different. Quebec French is generally categorized under Canadian French, which includes other French dialects used in Canada. The Canadian French dialect is older than the current France French dialect, as it grew only gradually in popularity outside of France, and it was more in isolation as it was surrounded by the predominant American English language.

Interpreting and Translating in French-Canadian

As a result of the varying dialects and slight nuances of the French-Canadian language, there is a substantial need for interpreting and translating services for the public and private sector. When in need of these services it is absolutely essential to hire interpreters and translators who are experts. They need to have solid Idiomatic command and extensive cultural knowledge in their specialty languages, ensuring accurate and true interpretations. As a result of the increasing need for these services, it is now easier to find professional interpretation service in any setting where there is a language barrier. Provisions for Conference Interpreting services, business conferences, meetings, trade, government agencies, and medical conventions can easily be arranged. Also when in need of legal interpretation, service can be provided for depositions, interviews, court proceedings, medical assessments, insurance claims appointments, or anywhere else you may need to communicate in the French-Canadian language.
