Textual translation

This excerpt is from the third page of a memoir on Jorge Luis Borges's short-story on the Babylonian library that stretches to almost infinity. Here I translated a bit from his biography from Spanish to French, noting that my memoir's main language was Spanish, as Borges was Argentinian.

All About Spanish to French Translation

If you're looking for a skilled Spanish to French translator who can remold your message for a new linguistic audience based in France and beyond, then you've come to the right place. Translating your content into multiple languages is a strategy that is sure to render your words more accessible, more resonant, and more far reaching than ever before. In today's global marketplace, the importance of communicating with your audience in the languages that they speak cannot be understated. By converting your text from Spanish to French, you're broadening your reach and venturing into a realm of new opportunities.

Spanish and French are both members of the Romance language family. Due to their shared origins, Spanish and French possess many more lexical similarities than other languages. You can expect your newly translated French text to include words, accents, and general sentence structure that aren't drastically altered from their initial Spanish form. Translators who are already fluent in one of the Romance languages (i.e. French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, or Romanian), will generally have an easier time learning to speak or translating between the likes of Spanish and French.

The French language represents one of the most valuable global language markets in both Europe and abroad. Not only is French the mother tongue of nearly 90% of the population of France, but it is the dominant mode of communication in regions of Belgium, Canada, Italy, Luxembourg, and the United States. There are over 280 million French speakers worldwide, and there are a number of French based creole languages, such as Antillean Creole French, Guianan Creole, Louisiana Creole French, and Haitian Creole—the latter of which is spoken by the largest community of modern creole speakers in the world.

Although Spain and France are neighbors, the sound of spoken French and its vernacular will vary depending on the region you are targeting. Parisian French is the dialect of French that most Spaniards will likely be familiar with, but if you're seeking to resonate with a French Canadian audience or a Haitian audience, then your French script may need to be fashioned to reflect that particular audiences' way of speaking. Hiring a Spanish to French translator with exposure to the culture you're aiming to reach is a best practice, especially if you intend for your message to come across as nuanced and authentic. Incorporating regional colloquialisms and crafting your words to mirror a specific community's manner of speech is a process known as localization.

Spanish and French have a lot in common. For one, they're both built from the 26 letter Latin alphabet. Spanish and French also share their use of verbal conjugation, gendered nouns, and accent marks (although Spanish only features two of the five accent marks used in French). However, the French have their own social conventions and media channels. Working with a freelancer who knows how to best communicate within this population, whether formally or informally, is the most professional avenue for tapping into this market.

France is a hub for high fashion, gourmet food, fine wines, and luxury brands. It also has a well developed media industry, boasting esteemed television broadcasters such as Canal+, world famous daily newspapers like Le Monde, and a formidable cinematic output that includes some of the most iconic works of film history.

When you need to pivot your Spanish language messaging and reach out to your French speaking consumers, then you ought to do it right by working with an experienced professional. Hiring one of the Spanish to French translators featured on this page will ensure that you launch your campaign in a refined and dynamic demeanor that strikes a chord and positions you for success among French audiences near and far.
