About the French Language
There are 77 million native French speakers in Europe alone, and over 140 million people speak it as a second language. Africa has over 115 million speakers, making it a very important language in most African countries. Throughout the world, 29 countries list it as an official language. It is also spoken throughout most of Europe and many other regions of the world, and is the fourth most spoken language of the European Union. French is written with the Latin alphabet, making it similar to other romance languages.
There are many different dialects of French. Several varieties of African, Asian, European and Canadian French are found worldwide, the African varieties being too many to categorize. The different dialects are dissimilar enough for there to be misunderstandings though many of them are mutually intelligible. Multilingual Connections has specialists in the many of these dialects to assure that your translations, transcriptions, and interpretations are accurate every time.
