The French language on the internet
Do you know that:
– The Internet counted about 59.8 million users of French language in May 2011 (four times more than in 2000), representing only 17.2% of the worldwide French-speaking population, hence that market has still some good progression perspectives.
– French-speaking users come mainly from France, but also from Belgium, Switzerland, and Luxembourg in Europe, from Canada, from Vietnam and Cambodia in Asia, and from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Senegal in Africa. The OIF (Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie) counts 70 states and governments.
– 200 million French-speaking persons in the world, with French being official language in 32 countries.
Opening up your website to the French-speaking community is a really big improvement for your business as you will be able to reach many more clients.
