English to Belgian French Translation Services
(We also offer Belgian French to English translation services.)
Just because English is the most spoken language in the world doesn’t mean that most people in the world speak English. In fact, most don’t—only about 1.35 billion people out of a global population of close to 8 billion speak English. Businesses, content creators, scholars, and others who wish to spread their content as widely as possible quickly learn that language barriers are a major obstacle that can generally only be dismantled via professional translation services.
If you want to translate your content into another language, French is a great choice—it’s a widely spoken, highly prestigious language with a wealthy speaker population. French comes in many varieties, generally stemming from the Standard French spoken as the national language in France itself. One of these French varieties is spoken in Belgium, a small, bilingual European nation sandwiched between France and the Netherlands, with nearly half of the population speaking French. If you’re specifically targeting a Belgian audience, delivering the most tailored experience you can is key, which is why it’s a good idea to hire a specialized English to Belgian French translation team, like the one here at TranslationServices.com.

Discovering the world of Belgian French
Roughly half of Belgium’s population speaks the country’s variant of French. Belgium is divided fairly cleanly into French-speaking Wallonia in the south and Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north, with the bilingual capital, Brussels, located near the linguistic border on the Flemish side. Belgian French is highly mutually intelligible with the Standard French spoken in France, with Belgian French featuring vocabulary and expressions borrowed from Dutch and terms considered archaic by Standard French speakers. Belgian French has also been considerably influenced by minority Romance languages spoken in the region, such as Walloon, Picard, Champenois, and Lorrain.
Belgian French grammar can also differ from that of Standard French, mostly owing to influence from Dutch. In most cases, these are literal French translations of Dutch grammatical structures or Dutch phrases, which can sometimes contrast strongly with Standard French conventions. Having a Belgian French translator who can seamlessly weave Belgian French grammar and expressions into your translation can go a long way in impressing French-speaking Belgians.
