About Romance Languages
French is one of the primary romance languages together with Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. It is derived from Latin and generally considered to be quite beautiful. We think so. It includes some idioms or sentence constructions that might sound a bit flowery, or downright odd, if translated directly. For example, if a Frenchman says to you “Arretez votre char!” you don’t want your French interpreter to say that he told you to stop your chariot. That’s the literal translation; what’s he’s saying is “Stop bluffing!” As with translating from any language to English, our expert translators know how, and when, to be thoughtful and careful in making choices about direct French translation versus translating for sense and clarity. Extremely good translations are as much an art as a science. Making sure you, the customer, understand exactly what — and everything — that was written and intended by the original writing is often much more complicated than simply transcribing a document by translating French to English on a word by word, or even phrase by phrase, basis. However, a good translator also knows not to impose his or her own assumptions or judgment regarding what can be safely omitted. Cal Interpreting & Translations’ professionals are trained; and they are gifted. They make sure you get the message — in whole and, to the extent possible, with the flavor, tone, and voice of the original author. That’s the something extra we ask our French interpreters and translators to try and bring to their work for you, our clients.
