Certified French Translators in Dallas For Immigration & Legal Matters

As a result of economic, environmental, and political turbulence this century, immigration from Caribbean and African nations to the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area has dramatically increased. A sizable percentage of these immigrants come from French-speaking countries, including Haiti and West Africa. Many are highly skilled workers. This surge in immigration accounts for a significant percentage of the 10,000 native French speakers in the Dallas area, making French one of the top languages spoken. While the area continues to attract French-speaking immigrants from Canada and France, immigrants from African countries account for the largest increases in demand for English to French and French to English translators for immigration. Some of the African countries where French is spoken include Morocco, Benin, Cameroon, Republic of Chad, Comoros, Côte, d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic, of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Madagascar, Niger, Republic, of the Congo, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles and Togo.
