French for Canada (also known as “Canadian French” or “French Canadian”) is, besides English, one of the official languages in Canada. French is the only official language in the Canadian province of Quebec. In Canada, French is spoken by about 8.7 million native speakers, most of them living in the province of Quebec.
French belongs to the Romance group of the Italian branch of Indo-European languages and is therefore more closely related to Italian, Spanish, Occitan, Catalan, Portuguese, and Romanian. Like the other Romance languages, French has developed from the spoken Latin language, “Vulgar Latin”. In addition, numerous terms of Celtic origin have been preserved in French vocabulary.
The French language was brought into the country by French settlers during the colonization of Canada in the late 15th century.
Due to the great distance to France, the French language developed differently than in its homeland and today it differs strongly from European French. It preserved many elements of an old language spoken in France at the time of the emigrants. Also, within Canada there are many variants and dialects, which are spoken according to the geographical location by the French-speaking inhabitants. Some of the vocabulary also includes terms from the languages of the indigenous peoples of Canada, as well as English terms. Another influence came from the influx of non-Francophone immigrants. Language usage also differs according to social class and speech situation.
The traditional terms “Canadian French” or “French Canadian” is today more and more replaced by the term “Quebec French”, although this variant of French is spoken not only in Quebec but also in Ontario and the western provinces of Canada.
We have already implemented several projects in French for Canada, including TV commercials for the jewelry company Thomas Sabo; web-based training courses (WBTs) for Fendt and GE Healthcare; training movies for dentists for Invisalign; voice announcements for the defibrillator manufacturer Zoll Medical, phone-based patient survey systems for the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, as well as the complete production of explanatory videos for the pharmaceutical company ICON.
Voice over recordings in French for Canada are carried out in professional recording studios located in Canada. We work with native speakers who have a perfect command of the Canadian French language and are trained professional voice talents.
