African French to English Translation Services

When most people think of French, they think of France. That’s only natural—France is the home of Standard French, the land where the language developed into what it is today, and the country with the most native speakers of the language. But, in fact, Africa boasts the largest number of French speakers, with more than 140 million people in Francophone Africa speaking French, generally as a second language. Considering that many French speakers in Africa are non-native speakers, African French can sometimes vary significantly from Standard French, so hiring a French-to-English translator with experience in African French can go a long way in ensuring quality.

African French is spoken to varying degrees in various North African, West African, and Sub-Saharan African countries. The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Algeria, Morocco, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, and Madagascar boast the biggest French-speaking populations, using French either as a lingua franca to unite various ethnolinguistic groups or due to the language’s lingering prestige from historical French rule. The varieties of French spoken in Africa vary from country to country, with each variant influenced by local indigenous languages. Since this can result in dramatically different vocabulary and even grammar, it can be difficult for a translator unfamiliar with African French to translate African French documents into English. That’s why we at have set up our own African French to English translation team.
