Phonetic Transcription of French Words

French phonetics can be quite confusing for people who start to learn French. Think about it – one French letter can be pronounced in 2-3 different ways and 3-4 letters can be pronounced as one sound! Fortunately, the pronunciation rules in French language are rather strict.

This free online converter allows you to convert French text to phonetic transcription using International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols. This tool will serve you as French pronunciation guide. It will save you a lot of time during your first steps in French, until you learn the pronunciation rules. If you use the phonetic transcription in combination with French audio and video recordings regularly, you will be able to improve your pronunciation and listening skills in French language.

During the development of this converter, I used the information from online resources listed below and other sources.

Note: Maximum number of characters for unregistered users – 700, for registered users – 7,000. For the correct displaying of the phonetic transcription symbols, make sure that you use the latest version of your web browser and choose the right encoding for this page – Unicode (UTF-8). This converter is only available online and cannot be downloaded to your computer.
