One Country, Three Official Languages

Since its independence in 1830 and the creation of its official Constitution in 1831, Belgium has been governed by a Parliamentary Monarchy. The three official languages, Dutch, French, and German are spoken in different parts of the country. Dutch is widely used as an official language in the northern part of Belgium. German holds a strong presence as the official language in the East, mostly because of several migrations in the past years and decades. And French is the mostly widespread among the three languages. It is the predominant language of the Walloon South, Picard, Champenois and Lorrain (Gaumais), as well as the capital Brussels. We offer professional translations into and from French, and the other Belgian languages. Because language isn’t the only important ingredient for a perfect translation, our translators are qualified in various subject areas. They will translate your medical, legal or other technical texts quickly and accurately using the appropriate professional vocabulary.

Belgian French

Belgian French is generally considered to be a regional variant of the widely spoken French language. The difference between French spoken in France and that in Belgium is the use of some terms that are considered archaic in France, and loanwords from Dutch and the local languages Walloon and Picard.

In the time when the nation was forming, French served as the official language of Belgium and was used by the administration, the justice system and the educational system. It wasn’t until the twentieth century that the French language was pushed out of the Flemish regions in the South of the country. Our translators are familiar with the special linguistic characteristics of this region and will adequately translate your French text into any language of your choice and vice versa.
