If you are an English speaking Canadian business looking to expand to a National market, you could be saying “adieu” to 23% of your market right off the bat. Quebecois French is the primary language for 6.7 million Canadians; it’s not a demographic you can afford to ignore.
If you are taking your business to an international level, consider this. 338 million people speak French in countries all around the world, including: Belgium, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Guinea, Haiti, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Monaco, Switzerland, Aosta Valley (Italy), parts of Canada, Vanuatu and many more.
Bilingual voice-overs and bilingual scripting from On Air can help you reach that market, with top quality Quebecois and Parisian French voice talent, and French language translation.
Like any widely spoken language, there are a number of regional French dialects and idioms. In point of fact, Parisian French is quite different than Quebecois French, which is different again from Belgian French. That’s not even taking into account the regional French dialects here in Canada, like Acadian French. If you are going to target a specific market with your message then you need your voiceovers to be performed by voice talent that understands the dialect and idioms of the region you are trying to reach. On Air has a large bank of qualified regional talents that not only understands your bilingual voiceover needs, but the needs of your French speaking customers.
Online translators like Babelfish provide very basic translations with a healthy dose of inaccuracy to boot. While it may be amusing on the internet, bad translation is bad for business. You can relax in the knowledge that your French Language audio will have been translated accurately, and your message will be heard loud and clear. For your bilingual voice over to be effective it needs to be accurate, and that accuracy starts with translation services from On Air.
