English to French translation
German to French translations are mainly required for marketing reasons, because French customers often insist on receiving the technical documentation in their own language.
Our translation agency is specialized in technical translations. We can look back on many years of experience in this area. But we can also offer a certified translation service into French for medical or legal texts such as contracts.

English to French translation: Pourquoi?
For complex technical products, the PRODOC Translation Agency provides expert technical translations. In order for our customers to gain a foothold in the French-speaking market, it is a major advantage if product catalogs, user manuals and datasheets are translated into French.
French users are often dissatisfied if a document is only available in English.
That is why customers such as elobau, FAULHABER, iTAC, Leuze electronic, Trumpf and many others rely on PRODOC’s translation service for English to French translations. Our French translators are native speakers and familiar with technical translations. They always translate into their native language French.
For optimal quality of the French technical translation, not only are language skills needed but also extensive knowledge in the field of industrial automation. The PRODOC translation agency specializes in the fields of automation technology, energy technology and automotive.
La qualité! – The decisive factor for French technical translations
Every company is unique. The PRODOC Translations GmbH team adapts to each customer and the wishes of their subsidiaries and sales partners. This is a matter of course, but it takes on a special meaning in the French-speaking world. This is because not only a linguistically flawless translation is often required, but also content adjustments.
Therefore, PRODOC establishes direct contact between the translator and the contact partner in the customer’s subsidiary office.
Consequently, this close collaboration guarantees the highest quality and results in professional technical translations from English into French. Especially with advertising texts, this is more than just a pure translation. In other words, it is even tailored to the market conditions in France.
Notes on translations into French
CAT Tools and Dictionaries
At PRODOC, we generally use CAT tools to support French translators. In addition to a translation memory, a French dictionary is also integrated.
This dictionary is customer-specific and does not contain general terminology such as the online dictionaries of Langenscheidt, Pons, leo, etc.
Technical terms are listed word for word in the customer-specific dictionary. These are automatically displayed to the translator when translating. In this way, translators no longer have to look up vocabulary manually.
Technical requirements for translation to French
In the case of a website, technical translation with a modern CMS systems is problem-free. It is usually possible to export XML data or XLIFF data from such CMS systems. This XML data is used for translation.
In printed documents such as datasheets or catalogs, which are created in Microsoft Word, Framemaker or Indesign, it must be ensured that there is sufficient space in the document for the French text, because the French text generally is significantly longer than the source text.
If necessary, you may have to reduce the font size by using paragraph formats after the English to French translation.
In addition to the translation into French and the translation from French to English, we also offer the language combinations German to French, Spanish to French and Italian to French.
From other languages such as Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Turkish etc. we can offer a translation into French via German or English.
