1. 4 Interesting Facts of Chinese-French Translation
We have collected some facts based on our translation experience during the translation process between Chinese and French. Here is a list of interesting ones:
- Nobody can learn these two languages and thus become a translator. Namely, of all the Chinese-French translators in our language team, no one has a mother tongue besides Chinese or French. The reason is apparent: French and Chinese belong to a different language family, and it is hard for people from other cultural backgrounds to learn Chinese/French thoroughly.
- More and more Chinese are learning French nowadays. There are 153 Chinese universities and colleges that opened a French major, and the number of French students in China is increasing each year. With the influence of French culture and business environment, the number of Chinese-French translators will be growing for a long time.
- About half of French translators in China work part-time. Although Chinese-French translation is a high-demand service, there are still many translators (nearly half) working part-time. Some of the professionals prefer to be freelancers, which is favorable concerning working time and personal income. Some work as international salespersons or teachers, doing some French translation to earn some extra money.
- All of our full-time Chinese-French translators are girls. Are girls more suitable for translation jobs? Nobody knows, and it is a fact inside Jinyu. But anyway, whatever the gender of our Chinese-French translator is, our professional translation and interpretation services have gained us a high satisfaction rate of 98.6%.

3. Comparison Between Chinese-French Translation and Chinese-English Translation
When translating a French document, we have noticed some similarities and differences between French and English. From the perspective of grammar, wording, and sentence structure, here is a list of comparisons between French translation projects and English translation projects:
- They all have auxiliaries and passive voices. Whether translating French or English into Chinese, the translator must adjust the sentence order for passive voices, as it does not exist in Chinese.
- They all have three basic tenses (present, past, and future). When translating French/English to Chinese, we use specific (but similar) skills.
- They sometimes have the same prefixes or suffixes, such as comment/commentaire, actor/acteur, etc. This is practical for our database analysis when our technicians are doing semantic recognition, which helps Chinese-French translation projects.
- Reversion of question. When asking a question in English, most of the sentences are reversed for subjective and predicate. But this is not the same in French, as interrogative sentences in French can either be in reversed order or in standard order.
- Order of verbs. In French, verbs in sentences are often used before objects like those in English. However, they are sometimes used after objects, such as when the objects are pronouns. This requires great attention for Chinese-French translators, especially for those who usually translate more than two languages.
- Gender of nouns. In English, there are no masculine or feminine genders of nouns. But in other languages, such as French or Spanish, different gender forms of nouns are called based on the context. This can sometimes help translators to judge content details better but may increase the difficulty as well.
4. 5 Techniques of Chinese-French Translation
Jinyu has been translating between Chinese and French for more than 15 years. Based on our abundant language experience, here are five techniques we have summarized for Chinese-French translation projects:
- Conversion of part of speech. In terms of sentence formatting, Chinese is likely to make a single structured sentence, while French tends to include as many components as possible. In that case, translators have to convert the part of speech of redundant parts in a French sentence to meet the Chinese expression practices.
- Translation of pronouns. Pronouns appear more often in French sentences than in Chinese sentences. While translating from French to Chinese, if the translator provides literal conversion, the final target text may result in a mess or cause confusion. Therefore, we often apply the repetition of nouns to deal with excessive French pronouns.
- Properly omission. Repetition of words or expressions is commonly applied in French to emphasize or to comply with expression customs. The translation for a French sentence that contains too much repeated components shall make use of the omission method to delete unnecessary parts.
- Translation of long sentences. Due to the mixture of multiple clauses and modification elements, French sentences can be very long. It increases the translation difficulty, especially for Chinese, which is not in the same language family as French. In this regard, combining common translation skills (conversion, deletion, adding, etc.) shall be used in our translation projects.
- Selection of words. Similar to English, there are many polysemous words in French, which may confuse the translator. How to accurately select the correct word for Chinese-French translation remains one of our daily work’s key points. To avoid the odd choice of words, we give special attention to our proofreading section.
