French translation

An official language of the United Nations, there are approximately 115 million French speakers worldwide, mainly in France, the Central African Republic, Switzerland and Canada.

The French language

It’s estimated that during the French Revolution, only 25% of the population of France spoke French as their mother tongue. Now an official language of the United Nations, there are approximately 115 million French speakers worldwide, in countries such as the Central African Republic, Switzerland and Canada. In fact, the number of French speakers has actually tripled since 1945, with former French and Belgian colonies choosing to keep French as their language of science, education and government, after decolonisation. Interestingly, one study has suggested that French may well be the language of the future and could even be spoken by 750 million people by 2050.
