Language Facts

French is a descendant of the Latin language of the Roman Empire and first appeared in writing in 842 AD when it was used in the Strasbourg Oaths. Before then, Latin was the language used for literature throughout Europe. During the 10th and 11th centuries, French appeared in a number of documents and religious writings, but French literature did not become popular until the late 12th / early 13th century. The first great work of French literature was the 'Chanson de Roland' (Song of Roland), which was published in about 1200.

French is an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organizations. According to the European Union, French is the third most spoken second language in the Union, after English and German.

European French and French Canadian use the same rules of grammar, but pronunciation and expressions are quite different. A translator/speaker from Canada should be used if your target audience is Quebec, and a European one if you are marketing France.

Writing

French uses the Latin alphabet, plus additional vowels with accents. Punctuation rules are different in French, the most obvious of which is the use of a space before a colon, question and exclamation marks.
