Guide to good corporate language practice

The increasing use of English in Europe has a major impact on the use of national languages at the work place in European companies. To deal with the problem, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in France (Délégation générale à la langue française et aux langues de France) has recently published a "Guide to good corporate language practice". It is intended for companies established in France operating at the international level and wishing to match the use of French with the requirements of global communication. It offers examples of good practice on all language related issues in businesses such as the management of language skills of employees, internal and external communication, multilingual websites and intranet sites, translation issues. You will find the French and English versions in attachment, or with the link : An online self-diagnostic tool enabling companies to assess their language practices has been developed from this guide (soon on We wish this can be seen as a contribution to multilingualism in Europe and can be of relevance in similar linguistic national contexts in Europe. In this perspective, we wish to circulate this guide outside France. You will receive in the coming days a few brochures both in French and in English. We will be pleased to give you more information.
