French Language Translation for Tour de France

To coincide with the world’s greatest cycle race, Speechmatics today announced the immediate availability of French to our rapidly expanding peloton of language capability.

Ricardo Herreros-Symons, Sales Director at Speechmatics, willingly interrupted his holiday to help us launch French from the top of Mont Ventoux, one of the high-points of the Tour de France, quite literally.

“The pace at which Speechmatics is delivering new features, languages and performance improvements are nothing short of breath-taking. Our Auto-Auto framework is proving yet again that we are ahead of the pack in innovation.”

And on France’s national day, Bastille Day, we wish to express our gratitude and admiration to our French colleagues, Benoit and Remi, both of whom are brilliant, committed and much loved core members of our truly international company. Liberté, égalité, fraternité
