Language tips and translation examples

If you target French speaking markets, it’s always recommended to translate your design, except in the cases in which the message is clearly made to be kept in English, like the popular British quote: “KEEP CALM AND…” or similar messages.

The French language requires two different words for each gender, and therefore 2 different designs, to express the same message. This happens when your design includes adjectives that refer to both to men and women. It’s a good idea to check with your translator about the gender-specific words in your design – and to make sure you target the correct gender with your ads!
