French is spoken as a first language by approximately 110 million native speakers and a further 190 further second-language speakers. Its importance as a global language must not be underestimated and the resulting requirement for translations from and into French is very high indeed. As an official language of the United Nations, European Union, Council of Europe, African Union, Interpol and countless other organisations, it is a language of immense political importance as well.
France’s principal economic sectors include Industry, Energy, Agriculture, Tourism and Defence. In particular, the country is a huge player in the realms of telecommunications, aerospace, ship building, construction and civil engineering, automobile production, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Consider historical ties with Africa and involvement in today’s oil industry – French language is also of significant importance beyond France itself.
