The vast majority of my clients requiring a French certified translation are in the process of applying for French nationality. I’m no immigration lawyer, but I thought it would be helpful to summarise the information offered by the French government with regards to the process and documents required, and to offer an English translation of some of the forms.

There are 3 mains scenarios that allow you to claim French citizenship. In all cases, any documents included in your application such as a birth certificate or marriage certificate must be translated into French by a certified French translator. Feel free to get in touch for a quote.
