French is a romance language, which evolved from the dialects that were spoken in northern France. It is classed as an official language in 29 countries, making it one of the top 3 most useful business languages. Make sure your message comes across naturally and eloquently. We can localise French documents for use in different French-speaking countries and territories across the world.

Case studies/examples of work we have done in this language.

It’s always good to see case studies so you can see how our translations have helped clients. We are an approved language provider for PSA, providing them with translations of marketing materials, marketing collateral, after-sales and diagnostic software translations, among others. We have also compiled a comprehensive glossary of terms over many years, for use with their translations.

When Peugeot approached us, they had a variety of translation requirements, but mainly French to English translation services. They had multiple systems in place, inconsistent translations carried out by a mix of native and non-native speaking translators. There were also many different contacts within the company delivering a varied range of translations, covering technical (diagnostic, recalls), PR(new product launches, press releases) and e-learning documentation. They had their own in-house translator who translated all the technical documentation manually and updated the documents from a historic library of data.


Once we took the task of streamlining the translation process for Peugeot’s many departments, the company was able to make cost savings; in the region of 35% across the company to date. ALM Translations has also integrated the company’s translation requirements into its own in-house department. This has saved the client both time and money and ensured a much higher level of consistent quality than that in place beforehand.
