A must for penetrating the Canadian market
1 out of 5 Canadians speak French as their mother tongue. Your enterprise can have a full presence in the Canadian market with a French Canadian version of your website, promotional materials or press release.
French Canadian communities are mainly in Quebec and New Brunswick, however, communities of French speakers exist in every province. By law, they must be served in French in any interaction with government or its agencies.
Pronto has a locally-based team in Quebec City who can render your documents into French as spoken in Canada.
Not the same as the French in France
Why is French Canadian different from the French in France, and why is it so important to choose a French Canadian translator for your French Canadian project?
A series of laws, most importantly the Charter of the French Language, also known as Bill 101 or Law 101, is a law in the province of Quebec in Canada defining French, the language of the majority of the population, as the official language of the provincial government.
These laws sought to reverse and, to the highest degree possible, remove all anglicisms from the French Canadian language. These included the flood of new English technical terms that became a part of so many all languages, especially since the beginning of this century.
However, the Quebec Board of the French Language resisted this trend by diligently finding authentically French equivalents, thus keeping the language free of adopted English terms.
Such was not the case in France, where Anglicized technical terms were widely adopted. In addition, for over three centuries, the French language has followed its own unique development on the North American continent.
