French (Wikipedia:French) is a Romance language (Wikipedia:Romance languages) of the Indo-European family (Wikipedia:Indo-European languages). It descended from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire, as did all Romance languages. There are currently 4 released French language pairs

French is the official language in 29 countries across five different continents. It's the first language for the people in France, the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick, the regions of Wallonia and Brussels in Belgium, western Switzerland, Monaco, and certain other regions of Canada and the United States. It is the fourth most widely spoken language in the European Union. For Europeans who speak other languages natively and is the second most taught foreign language in the EU. About one-fifth are able to speak French as a second language. It is the sixth most spoken language in the world and is the second most studied language worldwide.

In the Machine Translation context, one does not need to be too concerned with the various dialects, as their lexicon is mostly similar; differing mainly in phonology, tonal and spoken idiolects, and rarely, grammar usage. Furthermore, by specifying that Standard 'Putonghua' Chinese is the main focus of translation, any hassle with regard to Chinese dialects can be done away with entirely. However, what is significant about the Chinese language are the differences between "Traditional" and "Simplified" Chinese; the characters are different for 'Traditional' (used in Taiwan and Hong Kong) and 'Simplified' (used in Mainland China, Singapore, and Malaysia). Many online machine translators are able to convert between these characters easily.
